Pastor Reginald Eugene Shankle was born and raised in Lufkin, Texas to Bishop Leroy Shankle, Sr. and State Supervisor Verdia Shankle. He grew up in the church and was saved as a young man. For many years, he served as Minister of Music, Armorbearer, Elder, and later as Founder and Pastor of The Church By Christ Jesus in San Augustine, TX- under the leadership of his father- Bishop Le’Roy Shankle.
After finding his wife (Dr. Stephanie Mauldin Shankle) during a Crusade in Lufkin, TX, he later moved to Tyler, TX to serve with her as Pastor of Kingdom Family Church, Inc. By divine direction and leading of the Holy Spirit, they launched a new ministry in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth metroplex in 2013. Kingdom Family Church is a place where the power of God is demonstrated in the lives of many. The worship and praise allows the glory of God to be manifested and the gifts of God to flow freely!
Because of his labor in the kingdom, Pastor Shankle has been conferred an honorary doctorate of divinity degree from St. Thomas Christian College in Jacksonville, FL. He strives to set Kingdom order back in the lives of God’s people and to always be a help to others. Serving as a spiritual father and mentor, he continues to teach men at large through the ministry entitled K.M.O.V.E.N. (Kingdom Men Of Vision Empowering Nations). He also serves as the 1st Administrative Assistant to Bishop Leroy Shankle, Sr. under the Church By Christ Jesus Fellowship. He is a student of the word and has an Apostolic anointing to set the body of Christ into Kingdom alignment. He travels abroad teaching and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, changing lives through the demonstration and power of the Holy Spirit.
He and his lovely wife are blessed to have several children and grands, as well as god children. The team ministry that God has birthed through the Shankles is used to ignite sinners to salvation, as well as to bring believers to a victorious and new place in Christ. The two also serve as overseers for other Pastors and ministries under Kingdom Fellowship. They reside in Dallas, TX.
