Fred Kinsey, speaker/director for Voice of Prophecy, grew up almost in the shadow of the Voice of Prophecy headquarters when it was located in Glendale, California. He and H.M.S. Richards often crossed paths in the morning, when Pastor Richards was walking to the office and Fred was walking to school. Fred’s favorite story from those days is about Pastor Richards coming to his school and talking to the children and demonstrating his amazing command of the Bible—reciting many verses from memory. Pastor Kinsey has a wide background in pastoral ministry, church administration, and communication. Until recently, he served as assistant to the president for communication at the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, coordinating corporate communication for the Adventist Church in North America. Prior to joining the Division office in 2005, he was chair of the communication department at Pacific Union College, where he taught classes in design, debate, and public relations. His career has also included 20 years (1981-2001) at the Northern California Conference as communication and stewardship director and assistant to the president. He also has experience in commercial radio (classical, adult contemporary, and beautiful music stations), and a few years ago he was the classical announcer for the Earthlink Radio Network.
