The Life is a family of folks. Three men who’ve been called by God to serve this family are Curt Liles, Kyle Kite, and Andrew Grice.
Title: Lead Pastor
Hometown: Grenada, MS
Story: My family and I moved to Oxford after a decade of ministry at Crossgates Baptist Church in Brandon, MS. We felt a strong call to plant a new church in this unique and influential southern city, and we are excited to see what God has in store for the Life.
Title: Associate Pastor
Hometown: Military brat. Grew up here and there.
Story: I attended the University of Mississippi. After living in Oxford for a few years, i began working at First Baptist Church as the Associate Pastor of Worship and Students. I met Curt while he and his family were preparing for their move to Oxford to plant the Life. My family is very excited to be a part of what God’s doing in Oxford through the Life.
Title: Administrative Pastor
Hometown: Southaven, MS
Story: While in school at Ole Miss, I began attending The Life (where I got to know my wife). Shortly after graduation we got married and decided to stay in Oxford to be a part of what God was doing through our church. I spent some time working for a student housing company in town before coming on staff with Curt and Kyle. My wife and I are excited to continue to get, live, and give life to people in Oxford.
