Kris & Amanda Koch


Kris Koch
My wife and I both live and work in Clearwater where I am an event and festival producer. I was born in a Christian home outside of Minneapolis and grew up in southwest Florida. I actively attended church as a youth but I lacked an individual relationship with Christ. When I moved away from home to attend college my spiritual life went dry.  I married my wife Amanda in 2010 and as the next few years went by we began to feel the spiritual void of living a worldly life focused on things and stuff.  God used trials and challenges in our lives to not only bring Amanda and I closer together but to bring us both closer to Him.

We began attending BLDG28 in August of 2014 and fell in love with the accountability and culture that is alive within this church.  The leaders at BLDG 28 are committed to following the Bible’s teachings, being a light in the Clearwater community, being intentional in the spread of the gospel, and doing all these things for the glory of God.  My life is a testament to God’s grace and I am humbled and privileged to serve and encourage my brothers and sisters at BLDG 28.

Amanda Koch
I was born and raised in Florida and have lived in Pinellas County most of my life. I grew up in a Christian family but didn’t know the true meaning of God’s love and grace until adulthood. I married my husband Kris in 2010. We started attending BLDG 28 Church in August 2014 after feeling very lead to be a part of a church family again. I was trying to do everything in my life “my way” and our Lord and Savior showed me just how much I needed Him during the most trying and vulnerable time in my life. It was then that my heart was softened, and my eyes were opened to how crucial and important it is to have a real and intimate relationship with the Lord each day. I have learned so much from the teaching of God’s word at this church each week. It has been so amazing to be a part of this family, attend home groups, and build relationships at such a Gospel centered church.  I am passionate about being involved and connected in our Clearwater community and love serving this city through this church. It has been wonderful to watch what God has done and how He has grown BLDG 28 over the years and I am so grateful He put us on the path that brought us here.

We live in Clearwater and have 2 dogs named Crash and Annie that we love to spoil. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading books, checking out coffee shops, and local markets and watching baseball games.
