Kyle howard

Worship Pastor
The Vineyard Church, Urbana

Since his early teenage years, it’s been obvious to those around Kyle that he would be making a huge impact in the worship culture of his generation. He began leading worship in the youth ministry at Vineyard Church of Urbana at the young age of 14 and continues his leadership today as the lead Worship Pastor. In the last few years he has been featured on multiple Vineyard albums and is flourishing in his gift of songwriting. Kyle’s deepest passion is to see people encounter the loving embrace of the Father and to walk in the fullness of who they were made to be as sons and daughters.  

Kyle is very recently married to a beautiful young woman named Shelby. They are loving life together and share a joint passion for good ice cream. In his free time, Kyle is an avid golfer, a pretty solid basketball player and a professional at buying tennis shoes. (No joke, always look at his shoes.)

Itinerant Speaker/Worship Leader
The Vineyard Church of Central IL

What 3 words best describe worship leader Carolyn Yoder?  Authentic, energetic, powerful. When Carolyn leads groups of people in worship, they encounter the dynamic presence of the living God. This has been happening since she began singing at the age of 2 with her family—traveling and singing in a full-time prison ministry and continues today in her role as an Itinerant Speaker/Worship Leader with Vineyard Church of Central IL. 

Carolyn will quickly tell you that one of her greatest passions in life is to raise up a generation of men and women who understand their identity in Christ and live that out with authority.  In the songs she sings and the music she writes, you will hear this cause resounding! 

Carolyn and her husband Chad have 3 children, Blake (17), Ava (15) and Grey (11).  They are all lovers of sushi, family, friends and sunshine!
