Kyler is Crosspoint’s worship leader. He considers his main goal in life to serve God in ministry, of any kind, and he works toward that daily, noting, “It’s a heart thing.” He currently leads worship in two churches….One is Crosspoint and the other is New Way UMC. He completed one year of college and grew up in Pennsylvania. “But don’t worry - I’m not a Steeler’s fan,” Kyler laughs. He prefers music to sports. He loves the outdoors and thinks it is where he feel closest to God. “No constant drone of the city or machines, no constant light…just peace and nature the way God intended,” Kyler says. He is considering one day retiring with his beautiful wife in Sisters, Oregon. One of Kyler’s favorite aspects of Crosspoint is ”that the church is a living breathing body of believers and not a building.”
