Pastor Kathy Resler Chambliss

Lead Pastor

Kathy grew up in Goshen, Indiana and had a calling to pastoral ministry in middle school.  She was blessed with parents and mentors who took her calling seriously and gave her amazing support as she followed God’s direction for her life.  She got her ministry education from Taylor University and Fuller Theological Seminary.  After 10 years in youth ministry across 4 states, she put roots down at Kentwood Community Church in 2007, where she served in a variety of pastoral roles over 10 years.  Kathy came on board as the Campus Pastor at KCC Wyoming in 2017.  She and her husband Aaron have been married almost 20 years; he’s her best friend and the one who helps her not take herself or life too seriously.  Kathy and Aaron have two daughters, Kyliah and Ryelle and a goldendoodle, Simba.  Kathy loves horses, gardening, baking for others and outdoor adventures with her family.
