Kenneth Clevenger

FROM THE BOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF PRIMITIVE OR OLD SCHOOL BAPTIST MINISTERS BY DAVID MONTGOMERY AND MARK GREEN: 

ELDER KENNETH WAYNE CLEVENGER 

Elder Clevenger, of Cameron, Missouri, son of Jewell S. and Alma F. (O'Dell) Clevenger, was born in Excelsior Springs, Missouri, March 3, 1930, the first born of five children. He received his formal education at Cleveland Chiropractic College, Kansas City, Missouri, where he received his doctorate in Chiropractic in 1959.

 

He married Shirley Jean Jeude of Wellington, Missouri, June 7, 1950, and they have two children. Dr. Clevenger opened his practice at Cameron in July 1959 and practiced there for thirty-six years where he served on a number of boards and two years as mayor. Brother Kenneth was brought up in a Primitive Baptist home and can't remember ever believing anything else but salvation by grace. Sister Shirley was brought up in a Missionary Baptist environment, however, soon after she started attending the Primitive Baptist Church was blessed to see the truth and in July 1964 they both joined Old New Garden Church near Excelsior Springs, Missouri. They were baptized by Elder Loyd Bryant, Brother Kenneth's cousin.

 

Brother Kenneth began exercising soon after joining the church, making his first effort at Log Creek Church near Polo, Missouri, and was ordained at Old New Garden the fifth Sunday in October 1966. Elder Leon H. Clevenger, his pastor and distant cousin, preached the charge to him, Sister Shirley and the church.

 

Elder Kenneth has served as pastor of Big Piney Bethel Primitive Baptist Church, Rolla, Missouri; Brush Creek Church, Goldsberry, Missouri; Clear Creek Church, Fairview, Missouri; First Nodaway Church, Savannah, Missouri; Council Bluffs Church, Loveland, Iowa; and co-pastor of Old New Garden. At the time of this sketch he was serving Brush Creek and Clear Creek Churches, also keeping a regular monthly appointment at the Kansas City Church.

 

He is the editor and publisher of The Old Path Contender, a quarterly old line Primitive Baptist publication. He has also written numerous articles, which have been published in many of the Primitive Baptist papers over the years.
