Kenny Lowman - Teaching Pastor
I’m Kenny and I am the teaching pastor at East Islip, as well as the Director of the Reconcile 519 Network. As missions pastor, I help coordinate (along with the campus pastors) how teams are used at each of our campuses. I am also responsible for planning mission activities for our own church members. The Reconcile 519 Network exists to support church planting on Long Island and as the director, I communicate needs and share stories with our many supporters all across the country. I love to build relationships with people in the church and in the community and we look forward to connecting with many in Long Island.
I have been married to my wife, Tami, since December of 1986. We have six children. Our oldest son is Cameron, and he is married to Macy. He coaches and teaches in West Texas. Our oldest daughter is Kenna and she serves as a college teacher in China. Kole and Carli (both adopted from Russia) work and live in the Dallas area. Stephania and Peterson (15 and 12) live at home and were adopted from Haiti in 2013.
Tami and I spent the past 24 years in Midlothian Texas and moved to Long Island in August of 2015. We are excited about what God is doing in our lives and look forward to serving with the Crossroads team.

Interesting Facts: I never acquired a taste for coffee and drink iced tea morning, noon, and night. I have a plastic cup collection from attending many sporting events. I even have a plastic Whataburger cup from many years ago (Kendall and Sterling will know what Whataburger is).
When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
