The Mitchell E. Kolenovsky Evangelistic Association, Inc. was established in 1987 as a ministry designed to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. Mitch is an ordained Southern Baptist minister who believes the gospel of God's grace and forgiveness is made available to all who would believe through faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross. To that end, Mitch is available to share the gospel wherever God opens the door. Mitch pastored the Forest Hills Baptist Church in Seguin, Texas for almost twenty years and during that time the church assisted in planting four new churches, three here in the USA and one in Brazil. Mitch has traveled across America and throughout the world preaching, teaching and leading Christian volunteers on mission. During his tenure at Forest Hills the church rarely exceeded 120 in attendance and Mitch came to understand that even small churches can and should become directly involved in carrying out the Great Commission. Today, Mitch has a passion for assisting small churches and their pastors in catching an Acts 1:8 vision, The ministry's team of supporters are dedicated to assisting in the development and execution of this passion. Since January 2015, Mitch has partnered on a part time basis with the Southern Baptist of Texas Convention as a Field Ministry Strategist. As such, he works with SBTC churches of all sizes in the southern region of Texas striving to encourage their pastors, serve their churches and assist their associations in any way possible.
Mitch and his wife, Reva, have two married daughters and five grandchildren (2 girls and 3 boys). Mitch earned his Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Texas at Arlington, served in law enforcement for six and a half years, owned two business and surrendered to God's call to ministry in 1986. He received his Masters of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1989. Prior to serving as Pastor of Forest Hills BC, Mitch was an itinerant evangelist traveling throughout Texas, the southern US and several foreign countries preaching the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ. In their leisure time, he and Reva enjoy visiting with family (especially the grandchildren), golf and scuba diving.
