I am so glad that you have taken the time to get on our website to find out a little more about our church! My name is Kyle Strauser and I am the senior pastor at The Vine. I joined The Vine in January 2015 and I can honestly tell you that I love it here! We are a congregation of loving people that are dedicated to serving Jesus and one another.
I have been married to my wife Christine for 25 years and I have two daughters Katie and Natalie. Christine works for the Crawfordsville school system as a teacher’s aide and loves her job there. Katie is attending Milligan College in Johnson City, Tennessee studying to be a nurse practitioner. She wants to be a midwife. Natalie is a Senior at South Montgomery High School here in Crawfordsville and also works at Steak and Shake. Stop by and order a shake off of her sometime. She would love that! I am a 2005 Graduate of Johnson Bible College in Knoxville, Tennessee.
I have been in ministry for nineteen years and also worked for ten years as a senior mechanical designer for Otis Elevator Company in Bloomington, Indiana before the Lord called me into ministry. I love people and love being a minister in the Lord’s church. There is nothing else in life that I would rather do more than serve in the church and be able to minister to God’s people as they also minister to me. My family and I have grown to love this community and we hope and pray that we can get to know you as well, so stop by The Vine and say Hi! We would love to have you!
