Pastor Kenji came to New Life in October of 2017. He is known for a casual and humorous preaching style with a prophetic edge to it. Before New Life, Kenji was a social worker, a musician, and head coach at Icon Gym MMA. He has also worked several blue collar jobs and is proud to have a working class background.
Kenji has pastored at other churches before coming to New Life and is entering his 18th year in ministry. His past church experience includes being a church planter, youth pastor, and church leadership consultant, in addition to his senior pastor gigs.
In his own time, Kenji enjoys his family, playing instruments, reading, strength training, drawing, hiking, and film. He’s also a huge fan of Bruce Lee, watching combat sports, and checking himself before he wrecks himself.
