Biographical Note

Kenney Carl Moser was born on January 23, 1893 on a farm near Johnson City, Texas. His father was J. S. Moser (1860-1923), who was a well-known preacher and farmer in Texas and Oklahoma. J. S. baptized his son at the age of nineteen and K. C. preached his first sermon when he was twenty-two. After teaching in a one-room schoolhouse for five years, he entered Thorp Spring Christian College in 1915 as a preacher student, and he was listed as a faculty member for the 1918-19 academic year. He began full-time, located preaching at the age of twenty-six in Normangee, Texas (1919-20). For forty-five years he preached for nine different congregations in Texas and Oklahoma. In 1964, at the age of 71, his life-long friend F. W. Mattox, president of Lubbock Christian College, invited him to join the faculty as a Bible instructor. Despite his age, he was a popular, well-known and influential teacher at LCC. He retired from teaching in 1972 and died in 1976 at the age of 84. He is well known for his published works in the Gospel Advocate, The Herald of Truth, Firm Foundation, and other Christian publications as well as his published books and booklets, including but not limited to: The Way of Salvation, The Gist of Romans, and Christ Versus a Plan. His children published a book of his poetry, Reflections, after his death.
