In the early 90’s, Kendell  was intimately involved in helping two high school friends start their  own company, which focused on providing high-end technology solutions  for medium to large corporate enterprises. The company was extremely  successful, and the business grew to over 100 employees with annual  revenues of over $20 million. 


Seven years later, Kendell  felt the calling to change directions and head to Knox Theological  Seminary to learn the skills necessary for teaching God’s Word.  Following his time at seminary, Kendell took his  entrepreneur skills to the world leader in Biblical software  development, Logos Bible Software.
