My name is Kyle Crist. I was born and raised in an agricultural county in Pennsylvania near Philadelphia. Since I was a boy, I have enjoyed getting to know and help others at church, in sports, and at work. While completing a pastoral degree at Lancaster Bible College (PA), I realized that God has crafted me to counsel others.My wife, Jess, and I have enjoyed moving back to her hometown and home church. We love seeing God work in our lives and in the lives of those around us, working together to glorify God and further His Kingdom.
