My name is Kile and I’m a Pastor. I have the honor of being the Campus Pastor at the West Jordan Campus of South Mountain Community Church.
I’ve had the pleasure of working for (what I think) are some of the greatest churches in America. I’ve been blessed to have been a leader and Pastor at Saddleback Church and Cornerstone Community Church in Southern California, and LifeBridge Christian Church in northern Colorado. Along the way I’ve had some great experiences in helping lead multiple campuses, creating new ministries, and helping the next generation of Christian leaders. It’s been a joy, and I’m excited I get to do it! Additionally I get the privilege of being a regular contributor to Pastors.com.
I’m a recovering atheist, having spent the first 20 years of my life either not going to church, or ridiculing those who did. I often tried to argue Christians out of their faith, or stayed after the few Church services I did attend to tell the pastor how full of it he was. Additionally, I jokingly tell people I have a third of a degree in business, music, and computer science as I dabbled in all three for a few years each before God had had enough and (loudly) pointed me to ministry. Since then I have tried to make my mission to be useful to God in some way for His story. I believe He’s given me the mission to help others ‘Know God’s story and find their place in it.’ This motto is embodied further in the headline of this site – ‘Living God’s Story to the Fullest’ . I hold a B.A. in Biblical Studies from Hope International University, and am currently finishing my M.A. in Systematic and Philosophical Theology from the University of Nottingham.
I’ve have a way-too-good-looking-for-me wife, who is gracious enough to put up with my ‘all-in’ attitude to ministry. We have two beautiful children together – one boy, one girl – and a dog who reminds us daily she was the first addition to our family.
