Restoration Network International
Pastors Kenton & Nancy Slabaugh serve as the apostolic leaders of Restoration Network International and as the Senior Pastors of Restoration Fellowship. Currently based in Sarasota Florida, Kenton and Nancy along with their two sons, Joshua and Daniel, arrived in Sarasota and established Cornerstone Church of the Suncoast in 1996. In 2003, Cornerstone merged with Restoration Fellowship, another Sarasota church, to form one congregation. In 2011, Kenton and Nancy assumed leadership of part of Cornerstone Church and Ministries International to found Restoration Network International. Since that time, RNI has expanded to include several church plants, congregations and other ministries. Kenton holds a BA in music, a Master of Divinity, and a Doctorate in Strategic Leadership from Regent University.
Pastors Kenton and Nancy have a heart to host the presence of the Holy Spirit in every aspect of ministry life; whether in celebration worship services, one on one healing ministry or in small groups of believers meeting in homes. Their desire is to introduce people to the transformative presence and power of God. They are also passionate about raising up and empowering spiritual fathers, mothers, sons and daughters who will impact the next generation of leaders for the body of Christ.
