We desire to be led by the Holy Spirit in order to be submissive to: Jesus Christ as our only Savior and Lord, and to one another as we use our spiritual gifts to build up the Body of Christ.
Kyle Carlson, Senior Pastor
Kyle Carlson is the pastor at Mt. Zion Community Church. He is dedicated to serving the Lord in all aspects of his life. Kyle is first and foremost a family man. In 2003, he married his best friend, Toni, and they are the proud parents of 5 children: Spencer, Everett, Isabel, Daphne, and Reece.
While he and his wife were attending First Baptist Church in Arkansas City, Kansas, Kyle felt God calling him into the ministry. He answered the call quickly and began obtaining his B.S. in Christian Ministry Leadership at Barclay College, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2011. After taking a few years off from school, he is now continuing his education at Liberty University in pursuit of his M.A. in Christian Ministry.
Kyle began his ministry of service by teaching a middle school Sunday school class and serving as a deacon at his church while attending college. He served on staff at First Baptist from 2010 to 2012 as a part-time minister of visitation. In 2013, He was called to be the bi-vocational pastor at First Baptist Church of Argonia, Kansas. In 2015, Kyle was offered the position of associate pastor here at Mt. Zion. When the senior pastor retired at the end of 2016, Kyle was asked to step up to full-time service as the senior pastor.
Whether in his capacity as pastor at the church, or in his favorite roles as husband and father, Kyle tries to live his life by one motto. For God’s glory alone.
