Lead Elder - Kyle Byrd
The governing policies and principles of Church at The Epicenter stipulate that the apostolic leader is to be a perpetual member of the elder body, serving as Lead Elder among the active elders. Serving as such, it is Kyle's responsibility to set and lead in the administration of both the spiritual and structural vision of the church. With 10 years of previous experience on church staffs, coupled with his 30+ years of experience in working with churches all over the world through his travels with Front Line Ministries, Kyle brings an accomplished and unique perspective to the leadership of Church at The Epicenter.
As the "founder" of Church at The Epicenter, Kyle has had the unique privilege of serving alongside and growing with every elder that has ever served the church. This has proven to be an invaluable tool in developing a spirit of unity and service that permeates the elders of The Epicenter.
Elder - Ferrill Standage
Ferrill and Shirley Standage moved to Kingsland, TX in 2010. They, too, believed that they were moving to Texas to retire. It took only 1 visit to Church at The Epicenter for them to realize that God had much more for them to accomplish!
Ferrill Standage was raised in Kansas. He was in public school education for 36 years. Following retirement from education, he accepted the call to serve as associate pastor in his church in Hayes, Kansas. Since that time, Ferrill has dedicated his life to serving the people of God through the local church. He currently serves the pastor over community and benevolent relations.
Shirley, too, a retired educator, serves alongside Ferrill in all areas of his ministry to the people of the church and community. Ferrill and Shirley have two children who live in Colorado.
Elder - Carl White
Carl & Delila White have invested a lifetime in Christian ministry. Carl attended Asbury Theological Seminary and Oral Roberts University for his education. Delila is a registered nurse with a wide variety of experience. They have four children and four grand children who are the center of their beautiful family.
The Whites found Church at The Epicenter in 2012. Having purchased a home on Lake Buchanan a couple of years earlier, and believing they were settling in to "retire" after years of pastoral service across the country, and 2 years of missionary service in Italy. However, it didn't take long after stepping into the the Epicenter family for them both to realize their ministry was FAR from over. All of those years of pastoring and serving were merely the preparation years for what the Lord had for them at The Epicenter!
Carl now serves as the Pastoral Head of The Epicenter; Delila oversees the mission emphasis of the church.
