Pastor Kimo grew up in the loving home of Jim and Sandra Baker who were missionaries for Open Doors with Brother Andrew the first years of his life. Growing up in a home with missionaries as parents, he received a great understanding of the importance to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the world.
After high school, Pastor Kimo received a scholarship to play baseball for a college in Los Angeles, but the Lord had other plans for his life.
Two weeks before the baseball season was to start, he injured his shoulder, preventing him from playing baseball and catapulting him into full-time ministry, of which he has been since 1996.
In 2000 he met his wife Kristin who was attending a Christian performing arts school in Pasadena, California.
That year he also received the call from the Lord to enter into pastoral ministry.
In July of 2001 Kimo and Kristin were married in Laconia, New Hampshire, and in November of 2001 made their first move from California to New Hampshire where Kimo grew a great love for New England.
In 2003 the Lord gifted Kimo and Kristin with their first child who was born in Concord, New Hampshire, and in 2008 the Lord gifted the Bakers again with their second child who was born in Arcadia, California.
In 2012 Kimo and Kristin moved back to New England, and during that time Kimo finished his Master's degree in pastoral ministry from Trinity.
In 2013 he became the pastor of Nextgen NH, a restart church in Northwood, New Hampshire that was a part of the ABC V/NH.
The Bakers moved to Milford in January 2021, having been in Cape Cod since 2015, they were excited to get back to New Hampshire to continue to do the work of which they have been called.
The Bakers have a great love to reach all people with compassion through soul care, through the preaching of the Gospel in the Word,
and through partnering with the local community to meet the needs of those who are hurting and lost.
