Jimmy, DeAnna and Taylor KitchensThe most important aspect of Clear Vision Ministries involves relationships. Whether helping out with a short term project or ministering on a long term basis, each individual the Kitchens’ come in contact with find love and acceptance. Meeting people and establishing thousands of friendships over the years has been one of the highlights of working with God’s people for Jimmy and DeAnna.

Ministering to others has been a big part of Jimmy and DeAnna’s lives from the time they were children. For DeAnna, some of her earliest experiences in church involved singing with her family. As soon as she could hold a microphone, she spent time on the platform singing to the joy of God and those in the congregation.

While a sophomore in high school, Jimmy felt the call of God to pursue ministry as a youth pastor and preached his first sermon in a youth service shortly thereafter. The next year, Jimmy started teaching Sunday School at his parent’s church and playing guitar during worship. During his junior and senior year of high school, he served in leadership for his school's on-campus Bible club.

In October 1988, Jimmy Kitchens and DeAnna Anderson met at a small church in Texas, pastored by DeAnna’s father. They discovered they were attending Southwestern Assemblies of God University together and quickly became friends. Jimmy co-taught the college age Sunday School class during his freshman year at the church DeAnna’s father pastored. The next school year brought the opportunity to become a youth pastor in a small town near the college. DeAnna worked with Jimmy to provide worship for the youth group and has provided incredible worship experiences ever since. In this same year, 1989, Jimmy officially became a minister in the Assemblies of God. On June 2, 1990, Jimmy and DeAnna partnered together for the rest of their lives in marriage. In 1995, they were blessed with the birth of their son, Taylor.

Jimmy and DeAnna’s ministry not only includes youth ministry and worship, they also spent 8 years pastoring a church. During this time, they poured their lives into the church - helping people develop their relationship with God and the people they relate with on a daily basis. Both Jimmy and DeAnna have a tremendous passion for helping people become the best they can be in all aspects of life.

With a wealth of experiences to draw from, increased education and time spent continuing education in a personal way, the Kitchens accept new challenges to reach and help people around the world. They have worked with children, teenagers, senior adults and all ages in between in a personal way. The Kitchens enjoy encouraging missionaries and ministers to keep up the good work. They are easy to work with and work hard to make projects successful.
