Kyler graduated last spring from the University of Vermont and he is super ecstatic to be spending his first year out alongside the West Parish Church. He feels immensely welcomed by this community and is going into teaching. He is currently a substitute for the Danvers school district and likes to write, play guitar, or catch a sunrise outside of Sunday School.
