Name and position with World Orphans..
Kevin Squires, Senior Director of Advocacy.
What attracted you to your current position?
The idea of churches helping churches really stuck out to me. When I looked into World Orphans, I saw a humble ministry that simply wanted to help churches work together for the sake of the millions of orphaned and abandoned children throughout the world.
Where do you live and who do you live with?
I currently reside in West Virginia with my beautiful, supportive wife, Cassi, and my two sons, Grant and Jackson.
If you could give your 18-year old self one piece of advice what would it be?
Cherish your hair. Don’t over stimulate your follicles by using too much gel and hairspray. Remember, what the Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away. On a different note, don’t just follow the cultural flow of Christianity…it might take you in the wrong direction. Matter of fact, throughout your life you will often find yourself fighting against the flow of the Christian current in favor of pursuing a more holistic view of the Gospel. And remember, that’s OK… don’t feel guilty.
List three unique experiences in your life.
1. I hiked over 100 miles throughout the land of Israel studying the life of Christ.
2. I’ve “given birth” to two kidney stones… I named them Lucifer and Satan.
3. I was once quarantined for the Ebola virus.
What hobbies do you enjoy?
Sports, reading, traveling, Disney.
Describe yourself in three words.
Visionary. Compassionate. Bald.
One thing you always have on your person is...?
