Kyle Pickell

Kyle Pickell has a bachelor’s degree in Community Development and currently works for Emerald Youth Foundation, a nonprofit in Knoxville, TN serving kids and young adults in the inner city. Kyle is passionate about community renewal but even more so about helping others come to a true understanding of self through discovering their God-given gifts, skills, and abilities. This passion is what drove Kyle and his wife Carrie to move to Honduras and teach at the Leadership Center from September 2017-March 2019. Kyle currently serves on our Alumni Committee working closely with LMI graduates to brainstorm and help guide sustainable community development projects.  

When not working, Kyle is involved with planting house churches throughout East Tennessee or can be found on the baseball field coaching the local middle school team.
