Todd and Andrea Kitchen are a ministry team that began their dynamic journey while serving in an overseas military assignment in 1993. During this time, they acknowledged the call of God on their hearts to engage in a deeper level of serving, and assumed their first assignment as youth ministry workers. Todd and Andrea are both professional educators with a heart to help young people discover and maximize their truest life purpose and potential. They have a combined 30 years of educational experience in both classrooms and administrative roles. Todd and Andrea were licensed in ministry in 1998, and ordained one year later.
While attending a leadership conference hosted by Bishop T.D. Jakes in 2005, the Kitchens connected with Bishop Steve Houpe of Harvest Church International Outreach of Kansas City, Missouri. In 2006, they became members of Bishop Houpe’s Covenant Alliance of Ministries. At this time, they also connected with Pastors Dexter and Genette Howard, Senior Pastors of Restoration Church, and eventually followed the call of God to relocate their family to Northwest Arkansas in 2008 to serve on the staff of Restoration Church (formerly Life Harvester Church).
Since deciding to pursue the call of God over twenty years ago, Todd and Andrea have served in various ministry roles including Youth leadership, Outreach Pastors, Minister of Music, Director of Children’s Ministry, Director of Education and Discipleship, Assistant Pastor, and most recently, Associate Pastors at Restoration Church of Northwest Arkansas.
