Ministry Focus

Ken began working in church planting with Missions Door missionary George Patterson, and in 1987 was appointed with the Mission. Ken was appointed again in 1990 and presently serves as the Southern California Regional Ministry Specialist.

As the Regional Ministry Specialist for Southern California, Ken is responsible for the care and oversight of current Missions Door missionaries. He is also responsible for developing and recruiting future church planters to plant relevant, ethnically-diverse churches among the disenfranchised people groups of the larger Metropolitan Los Angeles area.

In addition to all that, Ken’s duties include developing other Southern California areas for future church plants.

Faith Story

Ken Wallace was born in the Bahamas and came to the States during his first year of middle school. His family professed to be Christian, but never went to church or read the Bible.

At age 18 Ken moved to Asia where he lived for the next 10 years. In 1979 Ken returned to the U.S., and in 1982 he surrendered his life to Christ as a result of the faithful witness of Christian friends.

Lori grew up in a non-Christian home. She came to know the Lord through a Christian friend in college and the ministry of the First Baptist Church of Hollywood, California.


Ken and Lori were married in 1984 and they have three children: Catherine, Jonathan and Matthew.
