Pastor Kyle’s personal ministry statement: “As a relational, missional, and sacramental leader, God has called me to collaboratively facilitate diverse, inclusive communities of belonging and becoming. Witnessing to God’s story of radical welcome, I will empower disciples who faithfully embody God’s grace through acts of justice and compassion for the healing of God’s beloved world.”
