Kit Van Arsdale – Master of Ceremonies PMOT Conf. 2019. Southwest Regional Director Bill Glass Behind the Walls Prison Evangelism Training Ministry
Kit Van Arsdale walked down the aisle and professed his commitment to Jesus on Mother’s Day when he was 7 years old. From then until almost 30, he lived a rule-follower life, loving and serving Jesus with one exception: he wasn’t faithful in sharing the Gospel. In January of 2002, a friend asked him to help with a Bill Glass Evangelism event in Austin. After being trained to share, he walked onto the rec yard at Bartlett State Jail and, for the first time, saw the Holy Spirit work miracles in the hearts and minds of “the least of these” on a grand scale. Kit was hooked.
By the end of the year he had attended five such events and became part of the local volunteer team. Bill Glass Ministries hired Kit in 2008 to be the communications and IT director. After a break from full-time work with Bill Glass to be a youth pastor, Kit rejoined the ministry in February of 2018 and assumed the role of Southwest Regional Director. He is responsible for overseeing all Bill Glass events in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
Kit has been married to Kim since 1994 and has 3 children: Bryce attending college at Texas State, Claire, a nursing major at the University of Texas Arlington (and getting married June 2nd!), and Jack, a sophomore at Mansfield High School.
