Rief Kessler

Rief has been serving the local church in full-time ministry since 2000 and joined the Experience Conference Ministry Team in 2017.  He currently serves as the Worship Pastor at First Baptist Church in Killeen, Texas, where he leads a multitude of diverse musicians in both traditional and contemporary worship services each week.  As a lifelong church musician, he is passionate about equipping congregants with expressions for worship that highlight congregational involvement and bring people into the presence of Almighty God.  Rief is honored to serve alongside his amazingly talented wife, April, and loves being Dad to his incredibly (and predictably) good-looking son, Caden.
