Kyler & Lesa Wilson
Kyler is the youngest son of Jay and Karen Wilson, and has spent most of his life on the mission field, being in McDowell County since the age of 7. He is passionate about the people here and loves this community.
He now is working as the Operations Manager, and is a volunteer fireman for the Welch Fire Department. He also works as a Certified Car seat Safety Technician. Kyler always knew that finding a Godly wife (preferably homeschooled and mission-minded) would be challenging, but nothing is impossible with God. The prayers of a faithful friend led to Lesa and her youth group arriving to serve on a mission trip only 11 days later, in June 2011.
Even though Kyler and Lesa did not give any thought at the time to a potential relationship, Lesa was profoundly impacted by the trip, and felt God pulling her to return. She was indeed homeschooled, and Lesa was very excited about missional communities and discipleship.
It was not until a couple months later, after Lesa and her team returned home to Minnesota, that Kyler contacted Lesa. After many messages, texts, calls, and visits, Lesa returned to the mission in May 2012 to serve as a summer intern. Kyler proposed to Lesa in August 2012 and they were married January 12, 2013. Lesa began her work with the ministry in 2013 some activities being leading the N.A.P.S. (Natural Answers Parenting Support) group encouraging moms in learning about breastfeeding, babywearing, cloth diapering, child development, and nutrition. In 2018 she became a Certified Lactation Counselor. Lesa also serves CCX as a graphic artist, web designer, photographer, and in 2017 became lead designer and producer for the online CCX Missional Magazine. She enjoys drawing, painting, and playing piano in her free time.
Kyler and Lesa joyfully welcomed the arrival of their son Alaric in November 2013, and daughter Clarissa in April 2019.
