About Kody 

Kody was born in Connecticut and lived there until he was 7 years old. That is when his family moved to the Charlotte area of North Carolina. Through out his childhood Kody’s parents struggled with addictions to drugs and alcohol. When Kody was 15 he too turned to drugs and alcohol. In high school, he started partying and regularly using prescription pills and cocaine. This quickly developed into a full-blown addiction which caused Kody to begin stealing in order to pay for his habit.

Through the course of several life changing events, Kody ended up in a rehab facility in South Carolina at age 18. His third night in rehab, finding no other solution, Kody called out to God for help. That night God saved him and completely changed his life. In the days following his salvation God made it clear to Kody that he was being called to ministry.

After Kody left rehab, he attended Fruitland Bible College. There, God not only began to grow his love for ministry but heavily laid on Kody’s heart the desire to move back to New England. He knew that that is where God wanted him to plant a church. In January of 2014, his dream became a reality when Kody made the move back to New England, and began to make his home in Massachusetts.

In October of 2014 Kody married Lindsey Glasier. Lindsey grew up in Colorado and moved to New England, with her family, five years ago. She is a graphic designer and currently works at Gordon College.
