FaithClips is the World Wide Web home of the Clark family. We are Kevin (father), Janet (mother), Taylor (daughter), Jordan (son), Elijah (son), and Peyton (daughter). We live in Rancho Penasquitos, a suburban community in north San Diego County.
Kevin was born in Texas and grew up in Oklahoma. He attended Putnam City West High School in Oklahoma City. He started college at the University of Oklahoma (OU), but transferred to the University of California, San Diego, (UCSD) when his family moved to San Diego. He is, however, still a rabid fan of OU Sooners football. His father was a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and his mother served in the Revelle College Dean’s Office at UCSD. Kevin has a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering from UCSD and a master of arts degree in theological studies from Bethel Seminary. He worked for ten years as an engineer for the United States Navy at its Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) and currently serves as Spiritual Growth Pastor at LifeBridge Church (LBC) in San Diego.
Janet was born and raised in San Diego. Her father served as head of an intelligence branch at SPAWAR and her mother was a public school teacher. Janet attended Patrick Henry High School and UCSD, where she received her bachelor of arts degree after double-majoring in communications and literature with an emphasis in writing. She also earned a multiple subject teaching credential from San Diego State University. Janet worked as a reporter for the Daily Californian newspaper, and later as lead content designer for Lightspan, an educational software producer. She is currently self-employed as an educational consultant, designing online training tools.
Kevin and Janet have been married over 20 years. Their daughter, Taylor, and son, Jordan, are teenagers. Taylor is passionate about writing and volleyball. Jordan is heavily invested in Boy Scouts and video games. Both are home-schooled and deeply involved in friendships with other students at a local home-school network and in the LBC student ministries. Kevin and Janet traveled to the People’s Republic of China to adopt Elijah in late 2014. In the summer of 2016, they are scheduled to return to China to adopt Peyton. You can read about their adoption stories by clicking the Adoption menu option at the top of the screen.
In their free time, the Clarks love to play together as a family, hang out with friends, watch movies, hike and tent camp in the local mountains, or visit fun places like Disneyland, San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, Sea World, and Torrey Pines State Beach. They are also active in a many ways at LBC, where Kevin serves on staff. But the most important part of their lives is their faith in Jesus Christ. Kevin, Janet, Taylor, and Jordan have all received him as Lord and Savior and committed their lives to following him. Those decisions color everything they do and say, as well as all their dreams and goals.
