Ken’s Story

Ken Reynolds was born in Port Jervis, NY, where he spent most of his early childhood with his parents and his brother. He graduated from Wheaton College in 1997 and immediately began his 20-year career as a full-time Worship Pastor.

While music and worship leading are his passions, Ken, an ordained minister, has also served as an interim lead pastor twice. He founded Fox River School of Music and authored two books, Heartcast and Off The Stage, focused on helping artists in the church grow in their faith.

storyKen is also a songwriter and has produced a worship album of original songs called King Over All. But most important, Ken is a husband to his bride, Cheryl, and a dad to three children: Zachary, Trevor, and Kyrsten. Ken loves his family more than anything on this earth. He believes that traditional families are under attack and wants to do whatever he can to protect and strengthen them.


Cheryl’s Story

Cheryl Reynolds was born in Wimbledon, England, where her parents lived while her dad was helping to start a refinery with Exxon. Her dad’s job required their family to move often. By the time she was 18, she had lived in England, Venezuela, TX, and NJ. She graduated from Wheaton College many years after meeting Ken in the 6th grade.

Cheryl, an ordained minister, served as a Children’s Pastor for 8 years. She also has a passion for missions and for training and equipping people to lead teams around the world. Cheryl has personally taken 12 international trips, as well as many stateside trips.  Cheryl has most recently served on a church staff as the Director of Missions, Assimilation, and Life Groups. She enjoys connecting people and helping them grow in their walk with Christ.

While all of this keeps her busy, she most enjoys being a wife and a mom. She believes her greatest calling is to disciple her children in the ways of the Lord. She and Ken want to pass on to other families what God has taught them through the good and the difficult seasons of their life.
