After many years of working in the business world, Kyle felt the call to go into counseling. He answered that call and completed his MA from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary and Ed.D in Ethical Leadership at Olivet Nazarene University. While completing his MA, Kyle worked closely with troubled youth through the juvenile programs at Ottawa County Family Court, which created a deep passion for working with teens. ⠀

Upon completion of his state licensure, Kyle took his passion to the community and formed Beacon of Hope. This passion, coupled with a no-refuse attitude, led to the belief that no one who desires help with counseling should go without services. Since 2001 Beacon of Hope has been providing no-cost, Christ-centered counseling to those in need.⠀
