Kevin & Laura August
Kevin and Laura August have served in full-time ministry for 15 years. Kevin was the spiritual formation pastor at Ginger Creek Community Church in Aurora, IL. He then served as pastor of New Hope Church in Decatur, Indiana for five years. In addition to Laura’s ministry work, she worked as a registered nurse for more than 20 years.
God called Kevin and Laura to start The Weil, A Christian Community in Portage, Indiana. This Christian community is similar to the first century church as those who are a part gather in the home on Saturday evenings to worship God. Serving now as missionaries in their native country, their hearts are for the least of these. God has brought those who are homeless, underserved, or underemployed who’ve not had the opportunity to experience the love of God through Jesus Christ. It may seem unusual to have missionaries in the United States, however, there is a growing need to reach a non-believing group of people who don’t know Jesus Christ. Every day there is consuming fire in Kevin and Laura’s hearts to serve God and others in this way.
Kevin and Laura have been married for 30 years and have four children Kyle and Stephanie, and Alyssa and Matt and one grandchild, Elliot.
