  • Derek & Sherri KYLE


    Derek and Sherri Kyle have been, and continue to be, a great asset to Family Church. They have served for many years in different capacities and now they are our Power Up Kid’s Pastors.

    Mike grew up in Family Church. He began serving in the church as a youth. He enjoys music and playing guitar as well as hunting and fishing (don’t let the skinny jeans fool you). Mike also enjoys spending time with his wife, Ashley and their two kids.

    Mike is passionate about seeing young adults learn who they are in Christ. He and his wife want to stand in the gap for the generation that tends to fall through the cracks (18-25). Identity is so important and the early twenties are a time that is crucial in understanding our identity in Christ as we enter the world on our own. Mike and Ashley desire to help young adults figure out what they believe and the why behind it.  So they understand that as they begin doing real life, they have a faith to stand on.
