After spending several trips to the county jail due to drugs and alcohol at the age of twenty one Kish found himself spending his twenty first birthday in rehab which was a long six month trip. After getting out of rehab and still struggling with addictions he found himself stumbling into a church in the middle of a Christmas Play quickly turning around and walking out. The pastor quickly came out and caught him and invited him to return to a regular service. A few days later while driving a friend’s vehicle taking him home while intoxicated the friend madly reached over and tried to hit him and turned the car off and took the keys and told him to get out while in the middle of a side street. Around mid night and very cold he quickly went to the first home with its light on and knocked to use the phone to call a ride to come pick him up. Stunned the pastor from the church answered the door and asked how did you know I lived here? Answering “I didn’t I just need to borrow a phone to get a ride”. The pastor replied that is twice that God has brought you to my door step so you have to come to church. This was the beginning of God drawing him into the church and the plan and purpose for his life. Still struggling with drugs he began using methamphetamine's intravenously and found himself in jail one more time which he believes was an act of God as well.
Shortly after, while trying to get life figured out and right he became married in June of 2005 and became a father to daughter Sunshine in November. With her birth and homecoming the wonderful Pastor Kenny Meckfessel came to the home and invited the family to church again and they have remained there to this day. God began a process of purging and deliverance and New Life Assembly of God offered just that a “New Life”. In 2010 the couple birthed the Ministry House of Melody Education which is a 501 (c) (3) organization offering music lessons and scholarships to low income families enriching lives in central Arkansas. He is now living his life for the Lord dodging the fiery darts the ruler of this world throws and him and is a wonderful husband and father of three beautiful children, Giving God the Glory and praise to our lord and savior Jesus Christ.
