Kyle Dykes
Pastor
pastorkyle@galluphill.org
 

Pastor Kyle (or PK) was born and raised in a small town – much like Ledyard – in Alabama.  He submitted his life to Christ at a young age and enjoyed the benefits of being raised in a Christian home.  He attended Auburn University, in Alabama, and graduated in 2000 with his Masters degree in Accounting and then moved to Atlanta, GA, where he was a practicing CPA with Ernst & Young for 10 years.  After his professional career he and his family moved to Birmingham, AL where he attended Beeson Divinity School and received his Masters of Divinity.   While at Auburn he met his wife Marcia and they were married shortly after they both graduated.  They now have four beautiful daughters, Maggie (10), McKenzie (7), Hadley (1) and Hayden (1).

 
 
     PK has a passion for the church and loves seeing lives transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ.   As a church, he earnestly desires Gallup Hill to be a discipling church where mature believers spend time meeting with, praying for, and training new believers and reach out to the lost through evangelism.  He also have a passion for community service.  A local church should be a blessing to all in its community – even those that are indifferent or even hostile to it.  If Gallup Hill were to close its doors 25 years from now, he hopes hope that the community would mourn its passing.
