Pastor Carl and Linda Kemp were both born in Wellsville,
NY and attended School in Belmont, NY together, graduating in 1967. High School
sweethearts, they married in 1965 and now have four children, Carl Jr; Louise; Vic; and
Roy. Their son Roy is also currently serving the Lord as a Pastor with the
Evangelical Methodist Church (EMC).
Saved at the age of 30, Pastor Carl and his wife Linda
began attending the Knights Creek Church in 1980 under the Godly teaching of Rev. Clem
Russell. Four years later Carl was approached by Pastor Russell who affirmed God's
call on Carl's life to train for the pastorate. Carl obediently began his pastoral studies
with the EMC. In the mean time Carl was called as the pastor at Knights Creek and licensed
on trial by the EMC. While Satan was constantly sowing discouragement, telling Carl that
he would fail in his courses, God's Grace was greater and Carl overcame the enemy's
discouragement. On April 26th, 2000 Carl was Ordained an Elder/Pastor with the EMC and
installed as the Pastor of the Knights Creek Evangelical Methodist Church.
Over the years Pastor Carl and Linda have seen God do many
great works in their lives, not the least of which was Carl's Divine healing from life
threatening liver disease. If you'd like to know more about this Godly couple, drop them a

love to hear from you.
