Dr. David “Doc” Kenser

Doc has served in leadership at Gateway since 2016 and brings with him over 35+ years of ministry experience. Doc has been characterized as a man of many talents: Military Serviceman, Hospice Chaplain, Pastor, Blogger, Motorcycle Club President, Veterans Advocate, and more! Out of all of those titles, perhaps “Pops,” is one of his favorite as he loves and cherishes all of his seven grandchildren. Doc is a family man at heart and loves to see God’s family grow and flourish.

Doc shares his time with Gateway and Arkansas Hospice.

He lives in the Benton area with his wife, Tandie, and they’d love an opportunity to build a relationship with you!
