THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE PASTORS, COMMUNITY LEADERS, SPONSORS, AND FRIENDS WHO JOINED US!
If you missed hearing Jeff “Spanky” Amlotte channel Chris Farley as he swapped jackets with game contestant, Patrick Ensley, from the Ensley Team – Five Star Real Estate, that was just the tip of what made for an incredible evening!
More than 570 friends old and new, pastors, community leaders, colleagues, and neighbors, came together to help provide food, empowerment programs, mental health counseling, and so much more, to people in northern Kent County.
This was a banner year, and we are pleased to share that Thursday’s event netted $96,000, and will go a long way to continue providing all of those services.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU and to…

Our version of the popular game show “Family Feud” and the 2019 FUNdraiser for North Kent Connect!
Thurs., Oct. 10, 2019
Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park
1000 E. Beltline Ave. NE, Grand Rapids
And special thanks to The Game Show Source for making this an evening of fun and games!
For its sixth year, the theme for our annual fundraiser was “North Kent Pastors’ Feud: Part Deux,” a game show in the style of “Family Feud.” The event took place on Thursday, October 10, 2019 at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.
Teams were made up of area Pastors, Rotarians, Lions Club members and local community leaders battling against each other by naming the most popular answer to various survey questions, often to hilarious results. And this year, the audience helped to choose the winner.
Proceeds from North Kent Pastors’ Feud benefited the food and educational programs of North Kent Connect, a resource center serving northern Kent County.
