Kyle Nielsen

I was born in Gainesville, FL raised in north east Florida and graduated out Allen D. Nease High School. I was came to know the Lord via going to youth group. One of the youth group outings that I went on was to a Billy Graham crusade in Jacksonville, FL in 2000. God called me to the ministry in 2015. Since then, I have gone to school and worked in the Child Welfare Services until December of 2022. From there I jumped into full-time ministry on an unpaid basis as the Lord has led me to Greenville. Kayla and I celebrated our 10-year anniversary this summer. We have 9 amazing children that are truly a large blessing from God.


My specific call to ministry was first realized when the Lord placed Matthew 9:9-13 on my heart and it was then that I knew I was meant to preach God’s to His people.
