Staff Leadership

Kyle Thomsen
Kyle Thomsen

Lead Pastor

I knew I wanted to be a pastor by the time I finished junior high! I love using how God has wired me to help transform lives. Outside of my relationship with Jesus, my greatest joy is my wife, Kelly & two boys, Josiah & Noah. My favorite way to burn energy is to play racquetball & chase the kids! Fun fact: I am the Jr. High Chess Champion!

Executive Pastor

I am forever grateful to God for rescuing me and calling me into ministry. I am honored to serve our staff team and church family in a variety of capacities after serving 20+ years in kids ministry. I still love kids and families, especially my own 3 grown kids and their families!

Worship Pastor

Singer/Songwriter. Encouraging people and partnering with the community to create wins is a big passion of mine! People say that I am musical…not sure why! I’m just grateful that I get to use my gifts & talents for God, and to inspire & build up the community He has placed me in!
