In 2019, Kinsolving released Mission Explorers Kenya for Kids, a missionary documentary he co-produced with his wife, Lisa. This missionary adventure with written curriculum shows the world of missionaries in Kenya through the eyes of a 12-year-old boy. The new documentary is a follow-up to the original Mission Explorers Video Series, which featured an 11-year old girl on a global mission trip. The original series became a No. 1 seller for Word Ministry Resources, a division of Thomas Nelson Publishers.

In 2007, Carey & Lisa Kinsolving launched the Children’s International Arts Festival and later the Rio Grande Valley Children’s Arts Festival. By answering and illustrating Bible questions for publication, children have won 30 family vacations at 14 dude ranches in various parts of the U.S. and two beach resorts at South Padre Island, Texas.

As a banquet speaker, Kinsolving has a distinct advantage in his What I’ve Learned from Kids presentation. In the six things he has learned from kids, Kinsolving features short video clips of interviews he produced that have run as 30-second spots on a network-affiliate TV station.

Kinsolving holds master’s degrees from the University of Missouri School of Journalism and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. A native of McAllen, Texas, he currently lives in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas with his wife, Lisa.
