MINISTRY EXPERIENCE

For the last 10 years I have ministered through various forms of evangelism. I have spoken at numerous youth and church events. I have partnered, over the past three years, with Forgiven Ministry out of Taylorsville NC.  I participate in their "One Day With God" camps. This ministry allows inmates and their children to be together for a day.  I have the honor of sharing The Gospel at the event. 

I am also a team member of Faith Force ministries out of Burlington NC.  I have worked with them for the past ten years. We have traveled all over the US doing feats of strength presentations in public schools. Then, we invite the students to bring their parents to local churches where we share the gospel.  We also deal with topics that are relevant to kids today such as bullying, peer pressure, suicide, drug and alcohol abuse and cutting themselves, to name a few. 

God has opened doors I could have never imagined. He sent me to Russia for ten days. We went into orphanages and various venues proclaiming the message of Jesus Christ. It is always my goal to let others know how Jesus changed my life. One of my greatest passions is jail and prison ministry. God has allowed me to see many inmates receive God's amazing grace.

God has turned my mess into his message.  Now, I use this message to counsel teenagers and anyone who will listen.  Many youth, and adults, feel that no one can understand their pain! I have been there, and they will listen as I have walked in their shoes. I want to partner with parents and churches to give our youth the hope that only Jesus can give!

I will continue to travel and share Jesus in all areas until the last one hears! Stay God Strong!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT KEVIN

“The first time I met Kevin Clapp and heard him speak, I knew he was the real deal. He preached the truth of God's word with clarity and boldness, shared his powerful testimony, and gave the students an opportunity to respond to the gospel. I have been blessed to be able to call Kevin my friend and bring him back to speak to my students every year since 2010. I highly recommend him to speak to any group - the message of the cross will be proclaimed!” Rev. J. Robert Murphey, Minister of Youth - Oak View Baptist Church

To Whom it May Concern,

I recently had the opportunity to hear Kevin Clapp present an inspirational talk to our students at Davidson County High School. I call it inspirational because I heard the whole presentation. The truth is, Mr. Clapp’s talk was real, honest, and the kind of talk that every teenager needs to hear. Teenagers would not recognize the talk as inspirational. Only adults would recognize the inspiration behind his words.

When Mr. Clapp began speaking, I wondered how our students would react. I am the literacy specialist at Davidson County High School, an alternative school in Davidson County, North Carolina. Our students are recommended to our program from all the high schools in our county and must go through an application process and an interview to attend. Some of our students choose our school in an effort to graduate early, but the majority of our students have experienced obstacles that have prevented them from being successful in a traditional school setting. These obstacles include family hardships, excessive absences, emotional and mental trauma, and teen pregnancy. In other words, our school is comprised of regular kids with big “issues” in their lives.

The difficult issues that many of our students have faced make them build walls of protection that are hard to break down. Sometimes it takes months and years to really get past their exteriors of stone. So, again, I wasn’t sure how our students would react to this big, loud, tough-talking middle-aged man.

I was facing our students as Mr. Clapp spoke. At first, I saw the same faces that I might see in an English class, faces that didn’t expect to hear anything with which they could identify. But it didn’t take long for the expressions on those faces to change as Mr. Clapp spoke about his experiences and emotions as a teenager and as a young adult in trouble, making the wrong choices, and choosing the wrong friends.

I think I was most surprised at the array of students whose attention he held with every word he spoke. From different cultures, different walks of life, different economic backgrounds, the students hung on his every word. As the old saying goes, “You could have heard a pin drop” in that large conference room. At the end of his presentation, he offered to meet with students individually and nearly a quarter of the students in attendance stayed to speak with him after his presentation.

In days when character development is needed more than ever, Mr. Clapp shared a dynamic lesson in how a life in shambles can transform into a life worth sharing,a life that can make a difference to others. I recommend him highly to speak to students everywhere.

Sincerely,

Literacy Specialist from a local school where Kevin spoke.

OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

1. The Bible:

We believe the Bible to be the only source of truth and that it is completely without error in its’ original autographs. It is a God breathed book and it is the Word of God. It was written by men who were inspired by The Holy Spirit. The Bible is the final authority for all things pertaining to the Christian faith and life. And it will stand for all eternity. (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21)

2. The Godhead ( Trinity):

We believe that God is made up of three persons. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The three are One. All three are worthy of our praise and worship together as one God who created and sustains the universe. They three have coexisted from eternity past and will exist throughout eternity. (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; John 1:14, John 10:30; 2 Cor. 13:14, 1 John 5:7).

3. God The Father:

We believe that God The Father is the first person of the trinity. He is eternal from everlasting to everlasting and is Holy, loving, and all knowing. We believe He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and the father of all who are born again believers.(Gen. 1:1; Eph. 4:6; John 1:12-13, John 5:19-21, John 17:1-5; Isa. 40:21-28, Isa. 43:10-13, Isa. 46:8-11; Rom. 8:14-16).

4. Jesus Christ ( The Son):

We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of Almighty God. We believe that he is the second person of the trinity. That God revealed himself through his Son and He is the only Savior of the world. He was born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life. He knew no sin but became sin for us. Through His substitutionary death He offers us redemption through his shed blood on the cross. We believe that through his death, burial and resurrection from the dead, that He defeated death, hell, and the grave, and by His finished work atonement for sin was paid. We believe that after His resurrection, He ascended to Heaven where He is seated at the right hand of the Father. We believe that He will come again in the air and rapture His bride (The Church) from the earth and that he will come again in bodily form and for all to see to conclude human history by executing righteous judgement. He will set up his Millennial Kingdom on earth for a thousand years to be followed by the eternal Kingdom over which He will preside. (John 1:1,14,18; John 3:16; Luke 1:30-35; Phil. 2:5-8;Col. 2:3,9; Mark 10:45; Acts 2:22-24; John 1:29; Rom. 3:25-26; Heb. 10:5-14; 1 Pet. 2:24, 1 Pet. 3:18; John 20:20; Phil. 3:20-21; Heb. 1:3; Rom. 8:34; 1 John 2:1; Acts 1:11; Heb. 9:28; 1 Thes. 4:13-18; 2 Thes. 2:7; Matt. 24:44; Rev. 19:11-21; Rev. 21-22).

5. The Holy Spirit:

We believe The Holy Spirit to be the third person of The Godhead. He came into the world on the day of Pentecost. The Holy spirit was given by God for the purpose of making Jesus known and to convict men of their sins and need for a Savior. He indwells or fills, every born again believer. He commits the ministry of regeneration, sanctification, revelation of truth, and for correction of the believer. We believe that one comes to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through the conviction of sin by The Holy Spirit. We believe that once a person is saved that they are sealed by The Holy Spirit until the day of redemption. We believe that spiritual gifts are given by the Spirit to each believer for the Glorifying of God and for the working of his purposes through the Church. The Holy Spirit indwells us to empower us for obedience to all of God’s commands. (1 Cor. 13:8, 1 Cor. 14:22; John 16:7-8; 1 Cor. 6:19, 1 Cor. 12:13; Eph. 1:13-14, Eph. 4:30; Gal. 5:16-17, Gal. 22-23; Rom. 8:5-13; 1 Pet. 4:10-11; Rom. 12:3-8).

6. Satan:

We believe that Satan is a fallen angel and a real being. We believe that Satan is the source of all evil and that he is the father of lies. We believe that Satan was once an angel in Heaven known as Lucifer and that evil was found in him as he wanted to exalt himself above God. That iniquity was found in him. He was cast out of Heaven and took a third of the angels with him. We believe that in the garden of Eden that Satan deceived Adam and Eve into rebelling against God therefore transferring their authority over to Satan and creating the fall of man. We believe that Satan was defeated at the cross of Calvary and that after the Millennial reign of Christ he will receive his eternal punishment by being cast into the lake of fire. Satan is a deceiver who according to the word of God comes for one thing..To Steal , To Kill and to Destroy! (Gen. 3:1-5; Isa. 14:12-17; Ezek. 28:11-19; Job 1-2; 1 John 5:19; 2 Cor. 11:14; 1 Tim. 3:6; 1 Pet. 5:8-9; James 4:7; Rev. 12:9, Rev. 20:1-3, Rev. 7-10).

7. Salvation: 

We believe that salvation is found in no other name than Jesus Christ. Jesus said that no man comes to the father but by Him and Him alone. We believe that Jesus, who knew no sin, became sin in our place on the cross. We believe that Salvation happens when men are drawn by the Holy Spirit to confess that they are a sinner and that their sin has separated them from a Holy God. It is by turning to God in genuine faith (having remorse and turning from their sin) as they place their faith in the in the substitutionary work of Christ on the cross, through grace alone, not of works, one is truly saved. (Eph. 1:7:13-14; John 1:12-13, John 3:1-7, John 14-16; 2 Cor. 5:17;Rom. 1:16, Rom. 10:9-10; Eph. 2:8-10; Rom. 8:14-17, Rom. 31-39; John 10:27-29,Rom. 14:6; Acts 26:20; 1 Pet. 1:3-5)
