"I was born and raised in the great state of Texas. My family loved the Lord and I grew up around the things of God. For a long time my faith was something that you just did, and not something that you lived. When I was 18, I experienced a fresh wind of God in my life, and from that moment everything changed. Through the Word of God, the Lord confronted me of my sin, and desperate need for Him. Months later I was reading in Jeremiah 20:9 that reads "But if I say, "I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name," his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot." At that moment the Lord told me there was nothing else I would be able to do with my life other than to preach His word. So from that moment on I have pursued this call on my life."

Kyle previously served as Student Pastor at The Summit Church Little Rock and The Summit's Student Collective Leader for 7 years.

Kyle met his beautiful wife Andrea serving together in a local church, and were married in 2011. They have three amazing kids, who fill their house with chaos and laughter.

Kyle's Prayer for The Summit Church Bentonville: "That we would be a people where the presence of God is pleased to dwell. Where people are known and loved. A place that would raise up children who are difference makers in the kingdom of God, and that worship the Lord in spirit and truth."



"I was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas in a family that loved the Lord. My parents were a part of The Summit Church planting team in 1998, and I was one of the original charter members. Growing up in the church helped me develop a knowledge of God and the Bible from a young age, but everything changed in high school. I developed a deeper passion and love for the Lord. He called me to surrender my life to ministry, and directed my heart with my life verse in II Timothy 4:2,5 "Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; correct, rebuke, and encourage with great patience and teaching ... exercise self-control in everything, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry." It is my goal for life to continually fulfill the ministry that God has laid before me."

Ryan previously served on staff at The Summit Church Saline County and as Pastoral Fellow at The Fellowship Kansas City.

Ryan's prayer for The Summit Church Bentonville: "To be a church who worships with joy and gladness. A church who loves God and loves those around us. A church who studies and applies the Bible across all generations - reaching and equipping the next generation. A church who is determined to see God move across Northwest Arkansas."
