Kevin John Conner, a hero of our Christian faith, a great man of God, and our second Senior Minister (1986-1995) passed away peacefully yesterday (18th February 2019) at age 92.
He lived a full life, inspired others with his knowledge of the Scriptures and imparted a love for God and His Word. He touched many lives through his teaching and with his humble and faithful example as a servant leader. Kevin was a much loved pastor and teacher and will be remembered as having strengthened our faith and understanding of what it means to be the church.
Kevin was not only dedicated to the local church, he was recognized widely around the world as a teaching-apostle and was highly sought after as a teacher in Bible Colleges and a speaker at churches and conferences. A great legacy is the many textbooks he has written which have been translated in multiple languages and are used by ministers and students throughout the world.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Kevin’s daughter, Sharon Damazio and her husband Frank and their children, and with Mark Conner (Kevin’s son and Senior Minister of CityLife Church 1995-2017) and his wife Nicole and their family in their time of loss.
No doubt, Kevin has heard his Lord and Saviour say “Well done good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord” as he is promoted to glory.
A public thanksgiving service to honour Kevin’s life and ministry will be held at the auditorium of CityLife Church Knox, 1248 High Street Road, Wantirna South Victoria, on Wednesday, 27th February at 5.00 pm (Melbourne, Australia time). All are welcome. Refreshments will be available after the service.
Rather than flowers as a tribute, the family has requested that any donations can be made to either Conner Ministries Inc. to further Kevin’s ongoing teaching legacy or directly to the Salvation Army where Kevin began his life as a follower of Jesus.
We hope you can join us on Wednesday 27th February at 5pm to celebrate Kevin’s life. For those not able to join us in person, this thanksgiving service will also be live-streamed (Please note: link will not be live until 4:45pm local Melbourne time).
PLUS an excellent Vimeo presentation with Kevin Conner sharing past, present and future details of his life at age 86.
