Kenny Bayless, Jr.
Kenneth Ryan Bayless Jr. grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, a town that among other things, is a melting pot for people from all over the world. After completing his Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Kenny decided to do exactly what he shares in the pages of Honor Thy Passport–to GET OUT!
His travels began in South America where he lived in Chile. It was there he realized how powerful a willing spirit can be in the Lord’s service. Long before he gained command of the Spanish language, God gave Kenny opportunities to demonstrate His love without words. From there he ventured to Europe and then to New Zealand where he began a stint with YWAM (Youth With A Mission). His team went to Far East Asia and ended their time with the entire outreach group in Israel. He remained in the Middle East before venturing on to Eastern Europe and Africa.
In 6 years and 40+ countries, God revealed His patience, love, provision and protection in Kenny’s life. At times, his travels were on a shoe-string budget thousands of miles away from anything or anyone familiar. Yet he was never far from the Father’s love. His experiences changed the course of his life profoundly.
While in Africa, God began prompting Kenny to return home and write Honor Thy Passport. His experiences will warm your heart, inspire you to attempt more in the Kingdom and above all else, help you expand your borders.
Today, Kenny works at a church in Canada (Calgary). He heavily promotes Missions and encourages people to let God use them anywhere in the world.
