As an intern, Kyler leads the college students with guidance from the other staff members, in addition to pursuing an M.Div. through The Master’s Seminary. He aims to serve and learn in a congregation that seeks to be Gospel-Centered, Bible-Focused, and Christ-Exalting as well as encourage college students to do the same.
Serving at UBC since 2023
Kyler grew up in Parma, a small farming community in western Idaho. He regularly attended and disliked church while growing up and considered it foolish to believe in a God who he had neither met nor experienced. After hearing the gospel many times, Kyler came to faith in Christ late in high school through the ministry of a local youth group led by his best friend’s father. Soon after, he moved to Pocatello to begin school at ISU. There he was led to Crossroads Christian Fellowship and UBC where he grew in his knowledge of God and the Christian life.
Kyler graduated from ISU with a degree in biochemistry. Two years later he graduated from the University of Idaho with a MS in plant science.
Kyler and his wife, Sharleen, have been married for 6 years and have 3 kids (including one in the womb). They were away for over 6 years but returned to Pocatello for him to join the UBC staff as an intern. Kyler enjoys playing tennis and ping pong and reading books at home with his family.
