Pastor Armstrong and his wife Genice came to West Side Baptist Church in January of 1993. The succeeding years has seen God work in many wonderful ways in sending out the Gospel both here and abroad. The Armstrong’s both grew up in Texas and began their ministry there. They have been in ministry for over 45 years. Kenneth graduated from Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri and was pastor of 2 churches in Texas before going to Massachusetts to found a church in West Bridgewater, where he ministered for almost 20 years before returning to this area and finally to Emporia. The Armstrong’s have 3 children – 1 daughter and 2 sons and have 12 grandchildren.
