||Jon Kile, Pastor:|
I was born in Portland,
Oregon, and I grew up in Tigard, Oregon. I came to know the love and grace of
Christ at an early age, and I knew from early on that God was calling me into
some sort of full-time ministry. I went to Bible College at Pacific Christian
College in Fullerton, California, where I met my wife Tiffany. After getting
married and graduating from Bible College, we moved to Johnson City, Tennessee
to go to seminary at Emmanuel School of Religion where I received my M. Div.
degree. While in seminary I preached part-time at a small country church, and
then after graduation I began full-time ministry which I have been doing since
1995. I graduated from The Master's Seminary with a Doctorate of Ministry degree
in May 2009. I have three wonderful daughters: Katie, Emily, and Allison. My two
passions are preaching God's wonderful Word and evangelism. I love the Lord with
my whole heart, and I look forward to serving Him at Faith Community Church for
many years to come.
I came to know Christ as a
teenager in 1973 and attended Tennessee Temple University (B.A. in Theology,
1981). I served as a missionary pastor from 1982 to 1989 and then felt called to
teaching. I received my California credential from National University in 1990.
Since 1992 I have been teaching and coaching golf. I have also served as youth
pastor and elder at Grace Fellowship of Dixon from 1995 through 2000. Since 2002
when FCC first started, my wife Christine and I have been leading and hosting a
Faith Group (home Bible study). I feel very privileged to be among the elders
serving at Faith Community Church and I am very excited about where God is
I was born and raised in Los
Angeles, CA, where I went to high school and attended my first four years of
college. I later graduated from California State University of Sacramento. In
1973 while attending California State University of Long Beach, God revealed to
me my own reprobate heart and convinced me that I was in need of salvation. God
opened my heart and my eyes that night and brought me into His royal family. In
1981 while serving in the U.S. Air Force, at Travis AFB in California I met and
married my wonderful wife, Carolyn, and we now have three wonderful adult
children, Chanda, Crystal and Joshua. When I left the U.S. Air Force I became a
police officer, where I worked for the next 26 1/2 years. During many of those
years I attended Sovereign Grace Baptist Church of Vacaville, and served as a
deacon for approximately 20 years. While there I was blessed with the
opportunity to preach and teach God's word. In 2001 Sovereign Grace Baptist
Church was forced to close its doors and in 2002 my family and I joined Faith
Community Church of Vacaville. In 2006 God called me into the ministry to assist
with His work at Faith Community Church.
I was born in West Point, NY, but spent my childhood years growing up in the Bay Area. After graduating from college, I married my best friend Rachel. The Lord has blessed us richly with two children; Joshua and Grace. My family and I have attended FCC since the day it was founded. But it was not until 2005, after teaching in public schools for 13 years, that I felt God call me to make a change and take my love for Him and passion for teaching to be part of the staff at Faith Community as the youth pastor. What a blessing it has been to minister at FCC for the purpose of spreading the Gospel and the edifying of the saints.
I was born in Ames, Iowa and moved to Santa Monica, CA when I was twelve. I attended Santa Monica High School where I met, and subsequently married five years later, my wife, Joy. I received my Bachelors and Masters degrees from UCLA where I attended on a football scholarship. After teaching for three years at the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY I spent the next thirty years in the Palo Alto Unified School District where I served as football coach, and later, Assistant Principal. It was during these years, July 31, 1971 to be exact, that a colleague took us to a Billy Graham Crusade in the Oakland Coliseum where both Joy and I gave our hearts to Jesus. Joy and I have three great children, Brad, David and Elizabeth and seven wonderful grandkids. I served as Principal of The King's Academy, a Christian school in Sunnyvale, CA, the final seven years of my career. In January of 2006 we moved to Dixon and we have been attending Faith Community since then where I serve as Adult Sunday School teacher and head up our senior ministry known as the Senior Saints.
