who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.
– Isaiah 41:13 NIV
- Ken Redford was first introduced to Jesus by the sincerity and warmth of Talent and Medford Friends Churches as a teenager. Ken has served in pastoral ministry with Meridian Friends Church for 21 years and has never felt more grateful or called to serve alongside this wonderful church and yearly meeting. Ken graduated from George Fox University with a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies and went on to complete a Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary.
- Ken and Tresa recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary and are on the verge of an empty nest as daughter Lyssa recently married and son Kyle is headed off to college in the fall. He currently serves as a member of the Northwest Yearly Meeting Board of Elders and he serves on the George Fox University Board of Trustees. Ken has a passion to see the local church thrive and he longs to encourage others to follow Jesus by encouragement, example and instruction.
