Kyle Balkissoon

Kyle grew up in a non-Christian home to immigrant parents in Whitby, Ontario. He is the third of four brothers and is a twin as well. At 16, God radically saved him from depression and suicide and started attending a local church. It was there that he encountered Jesus Christ and found the joy, hope and love of God. After high school, he went to college where he was trained as an Electrician and a Tool and Die Maker. Later on, he went to Tyndale to receive theological training while being active in church planting ministry.

Kyle felt the call to overseas ministry at 20 to Japan when hearing about the need of the Japanese for Christ through the events of the March Tsunami 2011. Since then, he has gone over twice and is now preparing to live in Japan with his wife, Kate, as missionaries with OMF International.

From his time at Tyndale he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology with a Major in Youth Ministry and served in two church plants as a Youth Director and Worship Leader from 2013 to 2018. Starting a ministry in a church plant came with a steep learning curve. But through that time, Kyle had various opportunities to join with other Youth Pastors and churches to see God reach the GTA. From starting and running small groups, drop-in basketball nights, outreach and local events and speaking at youth retreats, these days still define part of Kyle’s desire and dreams that every Youth and Young Adult would catch the heart of God for their own lives and burn brightly for the Kingdom of Jesus and the heart of the Father.

In October 2020, Kyle and Kate got married and have been journeying together in life and ministry for just over a year now, loving Jesus and sharing about His Good News wherever God sends them! They currently live in Markham, Ontario.

In his spare time, Kyle loves to catch up on the anime he missed from the week and enjoys board games with his friends. He loves to pick up his guitar and has in recent years been growing a love of camping and backpacking. He and Kate love hiking outdoor regularly (even in the winter) and love worshipping in their home.
