Kyle Searcy is a recognized and highly respected, apostle, prayer warrior, teacher, and author. He serves as Senior Pastor of the thriving, multi-racial, multi-generational, international ministry, Fresh Anointing House of Worship, located in historic Montgomery, Alabama.
It was in 1987 that Kyle had a supernatural encounter with Christ while he was a senior at Alabama State University. This life changing encounter would be the moment that he became a Christian. The experience of salvation to Kyle was so awesome. He was being reconnected to God and at that moment, he immediately devoted himself to living entirely for Him. Shortly thereafter, God spoke to Kyle with His internal, audible voice and called him to the ministry.
In 1993, Kyle became a pastor at Fresh Anointing International Church. During Kyle’s twenty plus years of ministry, he has watched God increase the membership at Fresh Anointing in Montgomery from approximately 100 to approximately 2,000 and counting. In 2007, with the leading of the Holy Spirit, FAIC responded to “the calling of the Lord” to make the shift and launch out to become Fresh Anointing House of Worship (FAHOW). The vision for Fresh Anointing is to Exalt the Lord, Extend the Kingdom, and Empower the People (E3).
Kyle, fulfilling his mandate as an end-time apostle, also serves as the Overseer of Fresh Oil Fellowship of Churches International and nine other Fresh Anointing House of Worship churches in the United States: Meridian, MS; Selma, AL; Wetumpka, AL; Birmingham, AL; Augusta, GA; Columbus, GA; Oswego, IL; Nashville, TN; and Crestview, FL. He is the Overseer for over 230 international churches on the continent of Africa, including Liberia, Nigeria, and Ghana. In July 2009, a new facet was added with the ordination of Kyle to the office of Apostle.
Kyle’s personal relationship and public ministry are marked by a very uncommon fervency and passion for Jesus Christ. His walk with Jesus is characterized by extraordinary intimacy, extravagant worship, fasting and prayer, holiness, righteousness, and a passionate pursuit of our Father and His righteousness. Kyle strongly believes that our relationship with Christ can be deeper than just going to church. In that relationship, we can have passion, sincerity, and purpose! Kyle demonstrates by his lifestyle and leads by example, that our passion for Christ can be so deep that it will possesses our innermost being and become the overwhelming motivation for all that we do. Those around him know him as a faithful bearer of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and as a man of integrity who is full of faith, the Word of God, and the power of the Holy Spirit.
Not only has God given Kyle a gift of speaking, but an anointed gift of writing. This gift has led to the publishing of several books written by him including Power of Passion, on the subject of developing a dynamic, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ; Overcoming Lust of the Flesh, which thoroughly explores the topic of lust from its origin to its defeat; Write the Vision: Developing a Life Plan, which provides practical tools to developing a vision and a life plan; From Legalism to Love, in which Kyle uses his personal testimony to help others cultivate a dynamic love relationship with Jesus Christ and What Ladder Are You Going to Climb, which is geared toward youth and young adults. Kyle's latest book, The Secrets of Biblical Wisdom, is set to be released September 1, 2012. This book shares the secrets to unlocking the power of wisdom, guiding believers along the path of acquiring and harnessing spiritual wisdom. Through personal examples, stories, Scriptures, and biblical examples, he shows how possessing wisdom produces, among other things, favor, special skills, and wealth. Each chapter ends with practical actions to assist readers in pursuing wisdom and enjoying its benefits in their personal situations. These powerful books are testimonies of God’s faithfulness to Kyle to use him for His glory. Kyle’s books have produced countless stories of how lives have been impacted and changed, all for the glory of God.
