Get to know Kie Bowman (in his own words):
I am the Senior Pastor of Hyde Park Baptist Church and The Quarries Church (“one church in two locations”) in Austin, Texas (www.hpbc.org). Originally from Fairbanks, Alaska (the rumors are true- it’s cold!), I arrived in Texas for Seminary in the 1980′s where I earned a Master of Divinity and a Doctor of Ministry from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth. Following my Seminary training, I made my way to the Atlanta area where I served two churches in 10 years until 1997 when I came to Hyde Park in Austin as Senior Pastor.
I have also served my denomination in a variety of ways including the honor I had in 2018 of preaching “The Convention Sermon.” I have preached at the Southern Baptist Pastor’s Conference, and for multiple State Convention Evangelism conferences. I served as Vice President of the Georgia Baptist Convention, Executive Committee member of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Chairman of the Administration Committee of the Georgia Baptist Convention. I was once privileged to serve as the Pastor-Adviser to the Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists. I also served as chairman of the Administrative Committee of the Southern Baptist of Texas Convention. Currently, I serve on the Executive Board, and Executive Committee of the SBTC, where I recently completed my second term as Chairman of the Board. Recently, my denomination elected me to serve as a Trustee of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas. I was also honored to serve one year as a member of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission’s Leadership Network Council. Over the years, I have served in numerous other positions both state-wide and nationally.
I have a tremendous passion for writing and I have authored or contributed to 17 books, including 6 bestselling devotionals from Thomas Nelson Publishers. In 2013, my book, “The King and His Community” (a New Testament Survey from Auxano Press) became an Amazon bestseller, sitting at number 2 in its category for 3 weeks! I followed that in 2014 with a biography of Jesus called “I AM,” also published by Auxano Press. My third book with Auxano is a study of the book of Acts, titled, “The Church That Changes The World.” I followed the book on Acts with a fourth book called The Unparalleled Gospel, a study of Luke’s gospel. My fifth book with Auxano Publishers was released on Easter, 2019 and is titled, “EMPOWERED Why We Need Spirit-filled Churches.” Recently I signed in to write devotionals for a new Children’s Bible due out in 2019! In addition, I have contributed to 2 Children’s Devotionals, both published by Thomas Nelson Publishers. In 2016, I contributed several sermons to “Preacher’s Sourcebook,” published by Thomas Nelson. My next book is co-authored with Trey Kent and will be released September 2019 and is titled CITY OF PRAYER!
