Deacon Clyde Fisher

Deacon Fisher and his wife Tina Fisher have always put God 1st in their lives, because without him there’s nothing. As newly weds, they enjoy life together everyday. Their family and church families are very important to them both, and they wouldn’t have it any other way.

College intern trevon covington

What’s up everyone! My name is Trevon Covington, and I am one of Kainos’ college interns. I was born and raised in Knoxville, TN. I attended Tennessee Tech University beginning in the Fall of 2016. I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Biology in December of 2018. I will be continuing my education at Central Washington University where I plan to work towards and earn my Masters in Primate Behavior. I declared Jesus as my Lord and savior back in 2009, and have since dedicated myself to offer the gift of service to others. I joined Kainos during my freshman year of college and have been blessed to adopt this ministry as my family. I have faith that I will continue to embody the principals this church has introduced me to even while I’m away: Finding Identity, Serving God, Loving People, and Changing the World.
