"The heart of our ministry is revival in the church, evangelism of the lost, and encouragement of God's people."
Kyle was born and raised in southwest Indiana and grew up in a Christian home. At 9 years old, he recognized his need for a Savior and got saved at a small Christian camp in southern Indiana on June 17, 1999. As a young man, Kyle began to seek God's will for his life, and at 14 years old he surrendered his life to preach the gospel. After his training at West Coast Baptist College, God led Kyle to serve as a youth pastor for a few years before eventually directing him into the ministry of evangelism.
Tressa was born and raised in a small town in southwest Montana. On January 3, 2000, Tressa realized she was a sinner and called upon the Lord to save her. She likewise surrendered her life to the Lord and God led her to attend West Coast Baptist College where she graduated with a major in Elementary Education.
One Blessed Family
Following Bible college, Tressa and Kyle were married on August 6, 2011. Today they have two beautiful children, Jayce and Kynoa. God has blessed as they travel across the nation, serving the Lord through the ministry of Evangelism. Their passion is for revival in the church, encouragement of God's people, planting of new churches, and the salvation of those who are lost.
