Personal Testimony:
I, Kyle, became a Christian through a series of events in my life.  I served in the Navy, and upon returning home I began dating Nancy.  We were married in 1972.  Shortly after we were married, Nancy’s brother and father invited me to attend Bible Study Fellowship.  I did, and three years later during the study of the book of John, I received Jesus as my personal savior.  

We began Missionary Process in 1997 after serving for many years on the ministry team.   On August 1, 1999 we became full time Awana Missionaries.  We shared Western WA with Darrell Weiland as he was transitioning into a new role of Regional Ministry Director.    For the last 12 years we have served SW WA and the Olympic Peninsula.   On April 1, 2013 we added King County to our Ministry Area, giving us approximately 160 churches with Awana.
