FIRST APOSTOLIC CHURCH
Since his conversion as a teenager, Kris has been on a mission to reach his world with this wonderful apostolic message and to experience Book of Acts multiplication. This pursuit has led him to focus on creating a biblical discipleship/disciple-making culture that has been transformative in his own personal life, as well as the church that he pastors. A few years ago, Kris and his brother, Ken, started The Dillingham Group to share with pastors their experiences on this journey to multiplication and to coach them in creating a discipleship culture in the local church.
Kris is married to the love of his life, Jen, and has 3 amazing kids: Rhett, Reece and Ashlyn. He serves as the Senior Pastor at The First Apostolic Church of Toledo that currently has five total campuses in the Toledo Metro area.
THE LIFEWAY PENTECOSTALS
Ken Dillingham was saved in a revival in the mid-1980’s in the Southern Illinois town of Centralia. He left immediately after High School for Houston Texas to attend Texas Bible College where he met a married his wife Stephanie. Ken’s ministry began in the local congregation in Coshocton, Ohio working with Pastor Wil White as well as working within the state as an evangelist. Eventually Ken and Stephanie traveled as a full-time evangelist for 12 years until 2002 where they planted a new church in Dayton, Ohio (The Lifeway Pentecostals). That church will celebrate its 20th anniversary on July 4, 2022. Ken along with his brother Kris started The Dillingham Group, a Kingdom advancement ministry focusing on helping local congregations experience multiplication, conventional and non-conventional church planting, and community restoration and reclamation initiatives for Kingdom advancement. They can be heard talking about these concepts every week on The Mobilized Church Podcast. Ken and Stephane have 4 amazing children, Kaylen, Kyle, Audrey and Avary.
