Kyle Gatlin

Senior Pastor

Kyle came to Covenant in 1999 after serving as Pastor of churches in Blountstown, Florida, and Montgomery, AL. He has been married to Deandra since 1991 (Kyle wanted this in his bio so he wouldn’t forget the year). They have a daughter, Jordan, and a son, Sterling, who, along with his wife, the former Amy Brooks – have two boys – Brooks and Wells. Kyle was named Senior Pastor of Covenant on August 17, 2022, after Dr. Hays McKay lost his three-year battle with cancer on July 16, 2022. In his off time, Kyle is a football/baseball official with AHSAA, feeds horses most every morning, and enjoys spending time with his grandsons and their cars.
