Our Staff


Harry Kennedy

Lead Pastor
In May of 2018, Pastor Harry was confirmed as the Lead Pastor of Wake Cross Roads. His passion for God and His Word is evident in the biblical preaching and teaching of God’s Word and brings a renewed commitment and energy as the church readies itself to respond as the Lord leads. That passion is also evident in his ministry helping people experience and grow in the love and grace of God in Jesus Christ. Pastor Harry’s hope for Wake Cross Roads is to be a people who passionately pursue Jesus Christ with both our minds and hearts while expressing and extending that gospel to the ends of the earth. A native from south Florida, Pastor Harry graduated from the University of Central Florida with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies. He earned his M.A. in Religion, Masters in Religious Education, and Master of Divinity from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He is now a Doctor of Ministry candidate at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with a focused emphasis in Expository Preaching. Pastor Harry and his wife Tiffany have been blessed with three children Zaley, Kiana, and Quad; and as a family desire to be used in reaching others for Christ.
