Kevin Snyder

Senior Pastor

Office: 306.773.4889
E-Mail:

Kevin is a guy who wants to leave a positive fingerprint in his world with his life.  One of the defining moments of his life was a farm accident when he was 6 years old.  He finished school in small town Alberta an avid participant in team sports.  He attended colleges in Camrose and Regina ending up with a Master’s degree, and his wonderful wife, Joyce.  She graduated with her Ph.T (or Putting Hubby Through degree). They moved to Winnipeg in 1984 where the Snyder family grew with the addition of a daughter, Jenessa, and son, Jordan.  He served as Senior Pastor of what is now Crossroads Community Church for 20 years and became an avid Jets fan.  In 2005, he and Joyce moved to Swift Current where he now serves as Lead Pastor.  In his spare time he jogs (where he works hard but experiences no visible results),  works on his house and yard learning how to do things right the 2nd and 3rd time,  and trying to complete the “honey-do” list.  His real accomplishments in life are that he still loves his wife deeply after 38 years (and she still says she loves him), his kids still talk to him, the church still trusts him to lead, and that God has been gracious enough to include a small town farm boy in His grand redemptive mission.
