While he’s best known for his role in the movies Fireproof and Courageous, Ken Bevel’s story goes far beyond these films. Growing up in Jacksonville, Florida, Ken’s family did not have a lot of money, but they were happy. This all began to change when Ken’s dad started to drink. Alcohol led to drugs and things began to spiral downward in his home.
By age 17, Ken found his life heading toward disaster as he sought love and affirmation in all the wrong places. After a failed attempt to improve his life by changing locations, he finally came to the “end of his rope” and cried out to God. This desperate plea began a journey of learning to surrender and say “yes” to God no matter the circumstance.
