Kyle Borg

Kyle Borg is the pastor of Winchester Reformed Presbyterian Church (RPCNA) in Winchester, KS. He has served there since July 2013. Having grown up in a rural county his heart is to see the rural church flourish under the ordinary means of grace to the praise and glory of Jesus Christ.

He was born and raised in Fairmont, Minnesota and graduated with a degree in Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse during which time he also served in the Air National Guard. He met his wife Rachel during this time and they were married in December 2006. It was in the early years of college that Kyle was introduced to Reformed theology when his twin brother began encouraging him to read the sermons of Charles Spurgeon and he began attending a PCA church in WI. Eventually he and his family moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan so he could pursue his Master’s of Divinity from Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. It was while there that he became acquainted with the RPCNA becoming a member–with his family–in 2010.

In addition to his pastoral duties in Winchester, Kyle serves on the Education and Publication Committee of the RPCNA.

Kyle and Rachel have been blessed with five covenant children: Evelyn (2008), Judah (2010), Aletta (2011), Mabel (2013), and Sylvia (2015). He enjoys his family, most people, board games, reading, fishing, and movies.

    Kyle,
    I’m not sure we have met, but I have appreciated your “blogs” on Gentle Reformation.
    I read with interest your blog about Andy Stanley’s comments about small churches.

    However, within 2 or 3 days he offered a public apology for those comments. I guess I’m surprised that in fairness you did not comment on his apology.

    I guess I’m suggesting that “Gentle Reformation” needs to acknowledge his apology and his explanation, followed by his reiteration of his apology.

    Even when I saw the initial comment, I thought it didn’t sound like him. As one who has studied church development for some 20 years, I understood his comment about being “selfish.” It is a danger for many Reformed Churches and for R.P. churches. We would never articulate it that way, but it is the problem that Jack Miller addressed in his book “Outgrowing the Ingrown Church.” We become comfortable in the way we are doing things and lack a strong focus on “outsiders.”

    I think we are good at seeking to raise our covenant children. However, we often ignore the 50% of children who don’t live in nuclear families, or live in bad neighborhoods, or go to public schools or ?????.

    When Peter Smith was pastor in Waldorf, MD a number of years ago, he began to get a passion for the people who lived “on the other side of the tracks.” He became involved with a homeless shelter and some of those people started to attend. One woman told him that he was “bringing to church the very people that they were trying to keep their children from.” She suggested that if “those people” continued to come, their family would have to look for another church.

    I think that was the attitude Stanley was addressing. He clearly states that he has high regard for smaller churches and seeks to help them.

    He agreed that his statement was thoughtless and he has apologized.

    Shouldn’t we at least make note of that?

    Keep up your thoughtful and insightful posts.

    Yours for more “Gentle Reformation”
