KEVIN EDLEFSON

WORSHIP LEADER

Kevin is a beloved child of God who is trying to remember that more of the time. He got married in the last millennium to his wife, Amy, and they have three kids. The first two – Emily and Owen – are half-Canadian (born while Kevin was in grad school in Vancouver, BC) and the third – Anna – can and could be president someday. Kevin loves Jesus and is captivated by his beauty and the beauty of the gospel story. He has shared that story by speaking, writing, singing, and acting. He has shared it as a pastor, church planter, youth pastor, worship leader, outdoor sales representative, dad, brother, son, friend, and stranger. In addition to his work at Voyage, he currently serves Jesus at WMU, working with international students with ICM and by trying to tell a God-story through creative writing. Whenever possible, he’s outside on the trails with the dogs or on a river with his kayak. His wife says he doesn’t drink any adult beverages (coffee or alcohol), but likes his caffeine cold and bubbly and would love to drink it while getting to know you.

Jazzmyne Guidry 

Kids Crew DIrector

Hello! My name is Jazzmyne Guidry and I am the Kids Crew Director for Voyage Church. I know a lot of families that attend Voyage and the most exciting part of my job is that I get to meet more! Sunday School is a very important part of a child’s faith because it helps them learn more about the person who loves them most in this world. I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to help grow your child’s walk with Christ, and minister to your family in any way I can!
