Kyle and Makayla met in ninth grade after she moved to his hometown from Pensacola, Florida. After dating all four years of high school, Kyle married his best friend, Makayla, in August of 2011. They have adopted two sons through foster care, Michael (11) and Eli (5). Since being married, they have served in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Coushatta, Louisiana. Originally from North Alabama, Kyle and his family are excited to call Florida home.
Kyle and Makayla are both students at Liberty University. Kyle is finishing his Bachelor of Christian Ministry and Makayla is pursuing a Bachelors in Social Work. They enjoy traveling and spending time with family. They are also excited to be close to the beach and know it will be one of their new favorite hobbies.
Kyle and his wife have been foster parents for three years and are excited to continue fostering once settled in Florida. They want to show the love of Christ to children in need and also their families.
One of Kyle’s favorite verses is Romans 5:8 which tells us that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Like all others before Christ, Kyle was a lost sinner undone and looking for completion. Kyle thought he knew the Lord because he grew up in church and went through the motions. However, when Kyle was 15 years old, the Lord radically changed his life. Kyle says, “I didn’t find salvation in a prayer or through three easy steps; instead I found it in Jesus and Him alone (John 6:35).”
After coming to know the Lord as his Savior, Kyle began to feel the desire and call to ministry. By July of 2008 Kyle had surrendered to the ministry at the age of 16 and held his first official ministry position at 19. Since then he has only felt the desire to fulfill God’s purpose for his life grow with each new day.
When you ask Kyle what the goal is for his life and ministry, he will tell you “To see people fall out of love with the world and in love with Jesus and to bring Glory to God.”
