Doug Kyle - Lead Pastor of Green Valley Church
"Jesus intercepted my life and changed my destiny forever. I hope what you hear on Sunday makes a radical difference on Monday. I never case to be amazed by the Bible and am passionate about clearly communicating it. More than that, I believe that God has a unique calling upon your life and true fulfillment comes when you find it. I am still goofy-in-love with my wife and incurably proud of my kids. I can get easily distracted by vintage VW buses, fine loose-leaf tea, and really good BBQ."
