Student Ministry Pastor

Kyle Kilpatrick is the Student Pastor here at The Church on the Hill. He grew up in Polk County, Florida, and he currently lives in Lake Wales, Florida. Kyle graduated from the International Baccalaureate Program at Lake Wales High School, and went on to The Baptist College of Florida to earn a Bachelor's degree in Missions, graduating in 2018. During his time at BCF, he was a youth pastor at a small church in Graceville, Florida, and completed an internship in the chaplaincy department of Graceville Correctional Facility.

Kyle was called into ministry in July of 2013, and preached his first sermon when he was 18 years old in Auburndale, Florida. He has a burning desire for the gospel of Jesus Christ which collides with his burden for the lost. Some of his biggest influences in modern history are Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, R.C. Sproul, and John Piper. He is always looking for opportunities to share the gospel and make disciples of Jesus Christ.

Kyle has been married to Emily since June of 2017 and she is a major help in our youth ministry. Kyle enjoys spending time with his family and watching and playing most sports, with the exception of basketball. He is a loyal Florida Gators football fan and becomes very "passionate" during their games. In his spare time he likes to travel to new places, workout, go to the beach, and give theological lectures to his wife, unsolicited of course.
