Ken Kessler


Ken Kessler served as the senior pastor of Restoration Life Church in Marietta, Georgia for over twenty-five years. Though he still helps oversee this church, he mainly focuses on leading Lifeschool International, a training and equipping ministry that he founded in 2003 that trains pastors and leaders in East Africa and throughout the world. As the founder and president of Lifeschool, Ken spends much of his time today writing and teaching about topics related to God’s eternal purpose, the bride of Christ, prayer and intercession, and deliverance.

Ken worked in the business world for 15 years before following God’s call to ministry in 1983. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering, an MBA and a Master of Divinity, and has been in full-time ministry since 1983.

Ken began Restoration Life Church in 1991 and served as the Senior Pastor until May, 2017, when he handed over the church to his son, Bryan.

Ken has been married to Donna Kessler for 48 years and they have four sons and five grandchildren.
