Native of Connecticut, Kevin has a rich ministry heritage that has roots in both New England and the Swedish Baptist movement (where Wellspring’s roots come from). After graduating Nyack College in 1994, Kevin primarily served as the Youth and Next Generation Pastor at Black Rock Church in Fairfield, Connecticut until 2007. During that time he grew the Young Adults ministry, Sanctuary, from 50 to 350 people. In 2007, Kevin and his family followed the Lord’s leading to Australia where he had served as the lead pastor of Yarra Valley Vineyard Christian Fellowship. Kevin and Kerrie describe this as a time of incredible growth and freedom in the Lord. In 2014, the Lord began to speak to both of them about a coming transition. Following the Lord’s prompting, Kevin came to Connecticut in the fall of 2014 to “pray on the ground” and seek God’s leading in a possible transition back “home to Connecticut. In a leap of faith at the Lord’s leading, and with no job lined up, the Butterfields left Australia and moved to Connecticut this past spring. After a congregational invitation, forum, and vote Kevin joined Wellspring as our new Associate Pastor in July 2015. Kevin lives with his wife Kerrie and their two kids, Noah and Hanna Kate in Berlin.
