My name’s Kyle and I’m a 1st-year Christ in the City missionary from Centennial, CO/

What brought me to Christ in the City

After serving as a summer missionary in 2019, I experienced a much deeper conversion to Christ, savoring His providence and life-giving abundance that was so tangible. Returning to Gonzaga University for my junior year, I walked the downtown streets of Spokane, WA with friends to introduce them to street ministry and the joy inherent within it. When courses went online and quarantine began, my heart was deeply moved for the many people who had no shelter to “shelter-in-place”. Inspired by St. Aloysius’ work, I wanted to serve those who had no one to care for them. This desire never left my heart, becoming the guiding force in deciding to take a leave of absence for my senior year. I realized that others need me to know, love, and serve them – but I’ve also realized my own fundamental need for the same, cementing my call to be a CIC missionary!

What I’m looking forward to

I’m looking forward to living in Colorado for a full year again, further recognizing and loving Christ’s face in others, and building a great men’s community!

A bit about me

I’m an engineering turned English student, often found diving deep into obscure and various passions before jumping into the next (photography, music, and outdoors stuff have stuck around the longest though). I keep a long and unfinished list of inventions, trip itineraries, and dreams in various notes to one day fulfill – one of which is to be a sage who wanders the Pacific Crest Trail… I believe understanding and telling stories of the human heart to be one of the most valuable pursuits and I greatly desire to grow in it.


everyone deserves
to be known & loved

We are so grateful for our monthly supporters and their consistent generosity which makes it possible for us missionaries to be formed and reach out the homeless all year-long.
