Radiant Leadership

David and Renata Perkins
Lead Pastors of Radiant Church

David and Renata Perkins married and began full-time ministry together in 2000. They founded and led a national student ministry, Desperation, while serving at New Life Church in Colorado Springs. After fifteen wonderful years of ministering to thousands of students, God gave David and Renata a burden to start Radiant Church in Kansas City.

In 2016, David, Renata and their four children (Dawson, Alivia, Adelyn & Justus) moved to Overland Park, Kansas. Radiant began as a prayer meeting in their living room with a desire to lead people to become radiant disciples of Jesus. Radiant expanded to Overland Trail Middle School and currently meets at Fiorella's Event Center.

In 2022, Radiant Church purchased a new building at 12140 W 135th Street in Overland Park, Kansas.

David earned an undergraduate degree in religion from Southern Nazarene University and a graduate degree in theology from The King's University. He serves on the board of Every Home For Christ International and enjoys dates with Renata, playing basketball with his sons, lattes with his daughters, and traveling. Renata earned an undergraduate degree in English from the University of Colorado. She enjoys one on one times with her children, reading, and dates with David.
