The Lord first got hold of Kevin's life as a freshman at CSU in 1992 and he started attending MVC in 1994. Kevin met his bride, Susan, while spending a year in Hungary with Campus Crusade for Christ. They quickly married when they returned to the states in 1997. Soon after their marriage, they started the college ministry at MVC - called Xtreme Reality - with two students in their living room. Kevin led the college ministry until 2005 when he transitioned to lead pastor at MVC. Kevin completed the Pastors' Institute at Mountain View in 2000.

Kevin's main responsibilities at MVC are to lead the church in the vision God has given us, oversee leadership development, preaching, and church planting. God has blessed the Wolfes with three beautiful boys - Jaden, Tyler and Caleb. They love to be by the water, whether it would be fly fishing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, or swimming. You will find the Wolfe's in the summer time spending their day off at Horsetooth Reservoir or driving around from garage sale to garage sale (what they call "sanctified gambling"). They love the city of Fort Collins, especially Old Town which is where you can find them many nights eating Walrus Ice cream or eating at Coopersmith's.
