Pastor Kurt Hardy

Board Member

I am retired from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Dept. after 33 years of service in Law Enforcement. I have degrees in Political Science, Business Administration and I am an ordained minister. God opened incredible doors of ministry behind prison walls where my wife and I shared the hope & love of Jesus. God literally took me from ‘hooking and booking” to teaching and preaching in jail ministry for over 25 years. We have taught seminars on personality types and differences and marriage restoration. We have had the awesome experience of foreign missions to Africa, Nicaragua and Mexico. I was very involved as an instructor/trainer in Chrystal Meth awareness and prevention and in helping to launch the “Crystal Darkness Campaign” in the western United States and internationally.

After retirement, my wife Patty and I moved to Prescott Arizona 18 years ago. We have been married 36 yeas and enjoy RV’g, kayaking and the great outdoors. I love writing, teaching, giving hope and encouragement through the power of God’s Word.
