Kemtal was born in Toronto, Ontario Canada. He grew up in church and knew he was called into the ministry at a young age. He was the beneficiary of great leadership at his home church Evangel Temple and went on to become a Charter Class graduate of The AFCM International Bible Training Center in Calgary Alberta.
Taking a divine detour, Kemtal worked and gained success at one of North America’s leading companies where he further honed his business acumen, tactical and strategic leadership, as well as people management skills, having led hundreds of employees and generating millions in top and bottom line revenue.
Relocating to Texas Kemtal began serving as the Executive Director for a large national youth ministry and began speaking all over the US and Canada ministering to over 100,000 people annually while leading an exceptional team of ministry staff and interns. Kemtal has appeared on GodTV, ATF TV, TBN and other national and local media.
Kemtal continues to be a sought-after speaker. His messages are often filled with vivid object lessons and at times side-splitting humor. He loves to see people restored, healed, set-free and ultimately empowered to fulfill their God-given purpose and calling. He believes that ministry is for “real people”, he challenges people to come to God exactly as you are and let HIM meet you where you are.
Kemtal serves as an Associate Pastor at Gateway Church based in Southlake, TX. He is married to Marla Joy and they have three amazing children Emmett, Zoey and Hilary. They make their home in the Fort Worth, Texas area.
