Brian Kinsey was born and reared in Lake Charles, Louisiana and entered full time ministry at the age of eighteen as an evangelist. He pursued that calling with diligence for ten years before accepting a pastorate in Provencal, Louisiana, during which time he earned a Masters Degree in Theology and authored The Bride’s Pearl, A Commentary on Ephesians.
After five years as a pastor, Brian Kinsey again entered evangelistic ministry while serving the Louisiana District as Youth President. In 1994, he was elected Youth Secretary of the UPCI, which necessitated a family relocation to the headquarters of the United Pentecostal Church International, in Saint Louis, Missouri. He advanced from Youth Secretary to Youth President, and served with excellence until reaching the age limit for that office. He was then elected Home Missions Secretary of the UPCI.
