Pastor Trevor Kinlock was raised in Los Angeles, California for most of his life. At an early age, he accepted the Lord and was baptized into the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sensing the call of God on his life, he enrolled at Oakwood College in Huntsville, Alabama where he earned his B.A. in Ministerial Theology. He continued his ministerial training at Andrews University Theological Seminary in Berrien Springs, Michigan where he earned his Master’s degree in Divinity.
Pastor Kinlock has pastored the Praise Fellowship SDA Church in South Bend, IN, the Emmanuel SDA church in Brinklow, MD, and the Calvary SDA church in Newport News, VA. He was blessed to serve as Calvary’s pastor for over 10 years and in his time there witnessed God double the church membership, double the tithe and offerings, and triple the enrollment at the church school! He also led out in the establishing of a new church plant in Virginia Beach, VA.
Since 2008, Pastor Kinlock has served on Allegheny East Conference’s (AEC) executive committee, area leader committee, finance committee, K-12 board, ordination committee, and 2012 nominating committee. He has served as the area leader for the AEC pastors and churches in Virginia for the last seven years.
He is happily married to the former Carleen H. Wallington. This past November, the two celebrated 15 blessed years as husband and wife. Carleen specializes in the field of child development/family relations and currently works on the national level on behalf of at-risk children from America’s low-income families. They have two beautiful daughters, Cayla Rose (10) and Ava Janell (5). Cayla and Ava are their daddy’s pride and joy and have him wrapped around their little fingers!
Pastor Kinlock is sold out to Jesus Christ and has dedicated his life to preaching the gospel and building the kingdom wherever God sends him.
