General Ministry Recommendations:
"Wilson is an amazing person. He has an amazing singing voice. He is a gifted story teller. But what stood out the most for me was his authentic passion for God.
His ministry is definitely focused on one thing and that is communicating Christ's love to as many people as possible. His ministry is more than just what he does from a stage. His authenticity speaks volumes for Christ before he ever steps on a stage. I would whole-heartedly recommend him for ministry to other ministers."
Pastor. Peter Kippenhuck

"We attended the Pentecostal Church in Cardinal, Ontario, for a special family event on a Wednesday night. I was fascinated by Wilson’s beautiful voice. It was the first time that I had heard a rendition of a ‘one man quartet’, to be a man with many levels of voice from base to tenor. The Holy Spirit has indeed blessed him with many wonderful gifts and fruits of the Spirit.
This is the first time in my experience that my son Robin has focused his attention completely in an activity for a sustained period of time. My son has been diagnosed with aspergers, which is a spectrum disorder of autism. It was with great joy that I witnessed a profound experience of healing and joy. Our family: My mother, my sister, my best friend, and Grandma had never witnessed this change. It is a transforming worship space; in which Robin had for the first time in his life found comfort, peace, and joy.
Wilson could not possibly have known that the greatest hunger for my son was to have one true friend. He invited Robin and another child on stage. “Evan” talked with Robin about having a hard time at school, finishing last in a race and being invited last, if at all into games on the playground. My son's mouth dropped open and a big grin spread across his face as he realized for the first he was not the only one. Evan asked if he could be Robins' friend. Since that day Robin dreams about talking with Evan and riding on that big red bus.
Thank you does not suffice. I am a mother, a pastor, and a compassionate friend to many. It was a great, rooted, core experience to know and to feel the presence of the Holy Spirit. God is the Source and our Alpha and our Omega. May God continue to bless your ministry."

"Our Church recently hosted "A Living Way Ministries." Sincerely, it was a joy to share with the Kindreds as well as with their friends, Granny and Evan. They brought laughter and awe (through illusions) to our youth group. They simplified the Gospel for our children, and had our church family leaving the Sunday morning service with a smile. Through music, ventriloquism, testimony, illusion, and pure kindness, they effectively showed the love of God. We encourage you to take time to host them and hear what they bring on behalf of God!"
Pastor J. Andrews
Grace Pentecostal Church
"What an awesome time we had in the Lord with Wilson Kindred! God has anointed this man with an amazing gift of story telling. He had every age level drawn into his story; even the kids were on the edge of their seats in anticipation. It was really nice to see how he drew us into his story and tied it in so well with what the Lord had given him for us. His music had everyone’s toes tapping and hands clapping. He is truly gifted by God. Any church that has him speak and Minister will be greatly blessed."
Pastor Rolland Sicard
Longlac Pentecostal Assembly
"Just this past week we as a church and those who attended enjoyed and would recommend ‘A Living Way Ministries’ to any and every church that has a desire to reach all ages, which are lost. Wilson and his wife Sharon, are wonderful people to work with and are extremely talented at presenting the Gospel in a variety of ways
I would say that the biggest impact that Wilson has been gifted with is the power of story telling, as he shares his life experiences and weaves the Gospel throughout the story leading to a call to receive Christ.
I would say to you, that I would not hesitate in having them minister in any Church in the future and would encourage you to employ this Ministry to the glory of God and for the work of his Kingdom."
Pastor Bob Rittenhouse
First Baptist Church
North Bay, Ontario
"Wilson Kindred, His wife Sharon and “Evan” from ‘A Living Way Ministries’ joined our Sunday morning service last month as our Sr. Pastor was enjoying a much-deserved holiday.
Wilson made for a very entertaining service singing all four parts of a ‘Southern Gospel Quartet’ (something that I have never heard done before, especially since some of us can’t stay in tune for one part).
He also brought forth a great salvation message and testimony. Included in this service was guest appearance from “Evan” who had the children and adults laughing.
Aside from the service, Wilson and Sharon were a joy to host. Their hearts truly are to serve, and they do that with passion, humility and integrity, if you are looking for a special family ministry, Wilson is your man."
Rev Trevor Headrick
Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church
"It was so good to have Wilson come and minister to us once again. We had such a wonderful time with him in Yorkton. Now since we've moved to Rocanville, our people here are thrilled with his ministry as well.
During their time of ministry with us, we saw the Lord move in a wonderful way. We saw people receive absolute deliverance... yes... old-time deliverance!….Our people were so encouraged and the youth group at ‘Fire house’, called it “the best‘ Firehouse’ we ever had”.
We took Wilson into two nursing homes to Minister. The precious folks there were overcome with excitement.
We had Wilson come and Minister in the Junior-Youth group, which meets in our home. And the children?…Well, what can I say?.......What can I say? When they found out that Wilson was visiting with Evan… They kept coming in the back door... no end to the parade it seemed. Everyone loves Wilson ,Sharon, and their ministry. So evident is his humility, his love for Jesus, and his integrity. We are so thankful for their friendship and for them coming into our lives once again."
Rev. Pauline Marks Torrance
Rocanville Pentecostal Assembly.
"Dear Fellow Pastors
I want to take this opportunity to tell you of my experience with Wilson and Sharon Kindred from ‘A Living Way Ministries’.
Both Wilson and Sharon present themselves with great humility and a spirit of Christian love and cooperation. They will follow, to the best of their ability, the wishes of the pastor whenever they visit your church. They are congenial and very appreciative. They are great to work with.
Wilson is a very talented singer and sings with great passion. He is also very humorous and engages well with the congregation, especially when he chats with “Evan”.
In the services that we hosted, Wilson shared his powerful personal testimony. He touched lives that night as he spoke of an abusive childhood and his personal journey of faith.
As a fellow pastor, I recommend to you this fine couple and know that they will be a blessing to your assembly. You don’t want to miss this ministry."
Pastor Gary Andrews
Windsor Pentecostal Church

"It gives me great pleasure to commend to you, Wilson Kindred of ‘A Living Way Ministries’. In recent years we have had Wilson minister in our church, at open-air concerts and in our local hospital.
I have come to know Wilson as a very dear and personal friend, as well as a colleagues in ministry. His deep devotion to Christ and the Gospel is uniquely presented through his consecrated musical talents. Wilson sings amazing four-part harmony, in Southern Gospel style. In addition to the musical message, Wilson is a wonderful storyteller and an excellent ventriloquist, working with his sidekick “Evan”.
Young and old alike have deeply appreciated Wilson’s message. He and his wonderful wife, Sharon, are a blessing to know and I would urge you to prayerfully consider their ministry for your church.
Please contact me directly if I can be of further assistance."

"Wilson presents the Gospel through testimonials & Stories that connect people with God’s incredible offer of forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
It is rare to find an evangelist who actually focuses on the lost…the presentation is one mixed with love, humor, and hope…I do not hesitate to recommend ‘A Living Way Ministries’ to you.
Pastor Mike Davis
Bethel Christian Assembly
"We were blessed to have Wilson Kindred minister at our church on a Friday evening. Wilson ministered with everything he had in him. He conducted himself in a professional manner, but more importantly as a true servant of God.
The message of God's love for people and His desire for our salvation came through clearly both through the songs and through the story telling. I would gladly have Wilson come back to our assembly, and would not hesitate to recommend him to others."
Pastor Lynn R. Merriam
New Hope Assembly
Blind River, Ontario
"I recently had Wilson Kindred of A Living Way Ministries minister in the church. I did not know what to fully expect but by the time the service was over I was glad to have him here. He moved us to laugh and cry as he shared through music, testimony and stories with the Word of God… with one youth rededicating his life to the Lord at the end of the service.
In talking with Wilson I have come to see a man with a good heart, pure motives and love for the Lord. His sacrifice to reach those who couldn’t be reached by others and willingness to travel many miles reveals a man dedicated to the service of the Lord. Wilson will reach people you or I couldn’t reach. The Lord, for the work that God has called him to, gifts him. I recommend having him minister in your community because he will be a blessing to you."
Pastor Mikael Mantyla
Pastor of Full Gospel Assembly
"I would like to “Praise the Lord” and convey our appreciation for Wilson Kindred’s Ministry.
I cannot verbalize it better than to quote Paul’s comment concerning Philemon “Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints.” (Philemon 1:7)
Wilson Kindred has truly “refreshed the hearts of the saints” in Matheson.
One man testified that his back had been healed after responding to the altar call! Another went home convicted of the “Truth” under the influence of the Holy Spirit! Yet, another testified on Monday that her balance and hearing was much better since being prayed for at the altar!
Wilson’s team playing and personable character delighted our leadership! He is a proven noble role model. He not only ministered in gifted music, but his ability to communicate the gospel by story telling captivated the listeners. His humbled spirit is always inspirational and uplifting.
God has anointed Wilson for a refreshing of the body of Christ. Thereby, I do not hesitate to recommend him for ministry.
May the Our Lord and Saviour bless this Ministry with many more souls and continued uplifting and encouragement of the family of God!"
Pastor David Lariviere
"I attended an outdoor concert in the Listowel Park, where Wilson Kindred sang and spoke. As a storyteller, he is captivating! As a singer, he is exceptional! He exalted Christ his Saviour! He displays a passion that uplifts one's soul!
After listening to him, I invited him as a regular supply speaker and singer for our church!"
Rev. George Russell
Calvary United Church
"Wilson is a very anointed and gifted singer with a powerful testimony. His unique style of four-part harmony and the message of mercy and compassion that he shares are very moving.
I recently ministered with Wilson at a men's retreat and the men responded very positively to Wilson's ministry. Wilson presents a very clear message of Christ's love and forgiveness. Wilson is a very effective evangelist and gospel singer."
Rev. Lorrie Gibbons
Regional Director-Southeastern Ontario
Western Ontario District of
The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada
" I was privileged to meet Wilson as he ministered in music at Silver Birches Camp. I later invited him to come and minister to our people in Kapuskasing. His desire to be used by God to touch the lives of others, with the musical gifts and talents that he has been given, make it easy for me to recommend him to you. Rarely do we see such dedication and anointing come together in a single individual. (...) He is a very talented individual, and I know that you will not be disappointed for having him at your church or outreach!"
Pastor Dave Mathieu
Crossroads Victory Church

Pastor Fred Lichti

"Wilson has been gifted with a powerful singing voice. He works very diligently at presenting an excellent ministry program. Most of all, he thoroughly understands the difference between ministry and mere entertainment. He prayerfully seeks to have his listeners drawn closer to Christ as he sings. Wilson truly has the heart of an evangelist. I heartily recommend his ministry."
"The Listowel Pentecostal Church board has commissioned Wilson & Sharon Kindred of ‘A Living Way Ministries’ as "Itinerant Evangelists."
