 Ken Mayfield

MEDIA & COMMUNICATIONS
                        PASTOR
Ken joined the View Church staff in February, 2014. His areas include Communications – Video Shooting and Editing, and Senior Adults (TNT – Tried & True). Ken grew up in the Gastonia, N.C. area. He surrendered his life to Christ at the age of 16 and recalls that God immediately put a call on his life to ministry. After attending college in Ohio, his former youth pastor, (who was then a pastor), invited Ken to come to Macon, Georgia to work alongside him in a church. That partnership lasted for several years. While in Macon, Ken made his debut into Christian radio. After moving back to North Carolina, Ken became the youngest general manager of a radio station in Charlotte’s history. It was during this time he began to learn the art of building and staffing radio stations. In his career, he has built or purchased more than 10 Christian stations including one of the nation’s most-listened-to Christian stations, New Life 91.9 in Charlotte (Now K-Love). In 2003, Ken managed 260 radio stations with a nationwide Christian network called K-Love. But soon he realized God had other plans. Because of his giftedness with people, Ken was invited to join the staff of a large church in Spartanburg, S.C. Ken still keeps involved in radio by serving as on-air announcer Saturdays at the Billy Graham owned radio station in Asheville, N.C., 106.9, The Light, WMIT. In 1984, God brought a special lady into Ken’s life. He married Debbie Helms from Monroe, N.C. They have one son, Kellan, who also serves in ministry with Compassion International and as Student Minister at Gowensville First Baptist Church. Ken loves music, adores his family and enjoys riding his Harley with Deb. More than anything else, he gets really excited about seeing people come to know Jesus as their Savior!
