Pastor Kevin Diamond

Lead Pastor 

Angie Diamond 

Family Life Director 

Pastor Kevin comes from a diverse Christian background. His parents grew up Catholic and Baptist, and raised Kevin and his sister Leslie at a Brethren Church. During High School the entire family was introduced to the ministry of Young Life. This early beginning to ministry ingrained in Kevin a passion to never make the Gospel of Jesus Christ boring. Kevin met his wife Angie in highschool in 2000 and they were married in 2003. They graduated from The Ohio State University and while in college they served as a Youth Pastor/Leader at a Baptist Church and IT Administrator/Volunteer Youth Leader at the Vineyard Church of Columbus. After college, they both worked corporately still volunteering in youth ministry, until God began to speak starting with the word from a pastor at Vineyard Columbus, “Kevin, why are you just making money. Anyone can make money. You know that God has called you into ministry.”  God clearly called Kevin and Angie to serve together again at Faith Covenant Church in Westerville, Ohio. Kevin served as Associate & Youth Pastor for nine years at Faith Covenant Church. During this season Kevin and Angie were blessed with the births of their 2 amazing boys Preston (2010) and Carson (2012).  Kevin also attended the Covenant’s North Park Theological Seminary. After graduating from North Park Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity the Diamonds followed the call as the Lead Pastor of San Andreas Community Covenant Church in California. There they were able to bring vitality to a 150 year old church and start Celebrate Recovery. After visiting Melbourne Beach to spend time with Angie’s sister, God began to speak again. They felt the clear call to start a new church in this area that would be focused on the Word of God, love everyone, build a family-friendly ministry, and can live and serve alongside their own family. After sharing this vision with leaders of the Evangelical Covenant and going through Church Planter’s Assessment/Training, it was clear that God was moving in this direction and the Diamonds prepared to move across the country to follow His call again. Being a part of the community is important to The Diamonds so you will regularly see us at activities around the community. We find it a sacred privilege to get to serve and lead a new church! We love the Space Coast!
