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!

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!

Laurie Kelley
Laurie Kelley

Children’s Pastor & Operations Director

I love being a mom to my three grown kids and their spouses…and I adore being a Grammy to 5 (so far!)! Forever grateful to God for what He’s done in my life. He rescued me and then called me into kid’s ministry where I serve with amazing teams of people who love Jesus and His kids!
