The first paid staff member hired by the New Castle County affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, he began his career with Habitat as a volunteer coordinator at Habitat for Humanity in Fresno, California. He made his way out West – and to Habitat – through a Volunteer Program that is part of the Mennonite Church.
A Newark native and UD “Blue Hen,” Kevin previously worked in the systems field for Delaware companies such as AIG Marketing, Standard Chlorine and Synerfac. He holds a B.S. from the University of Delaware in Business Management (Operations) and a minor in Management Information Systems. Kevin completed Habitat for Humanity’s Leadership Certificate from Harvard Business School in 2010 and Bank of America’s Neighborhood Builders Leadership Training in 2016.
Kevin is a bi-vocational minister, as he has recently been commissioned in the United Methodist Church as a deacon (clergy- Reverend). Rev. Smith graduated in May 2022 with a Master of Arts in Ministry and Leadership from Lancaster Theological Seminary in Lancaster, PA. He will continue to serve Habitat for Humanity as his primary vocation and will add a secondary vocation as clergy for his church, Newark United Methodist Church.
Kevin and his wife Diane have been married 24 years and are blessed with four daughters and two grandchildren.
