LEADERSHIP OF THIS HOUSE
Relentless is not a part of any denomination; we are simply a house that follows God under the leadership that God has established, and that starts with the visionary leader. Kyle Garrison is the visionary leader of this house. He leads us under the headship of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit with the accountability of a group known as elders who meet the biblical qualifications for leadership. The Elders and the Leadership Team, under the direction of Visionary Leader, govern our house through prayer, vision casting, financial decisions, and leadership development/decisions.
The leadership team of this house embraces the Ephesians 4 model of a 5-Fold Leadership Ministry for the building and equipping of the people of God so that we can go in to the world and serve Jesus well. As we move forward as a house we are always growing in to this leadership model!
Below is our Current Leadership Model
Head of the Church
God (Father, Son, Holy Spirit)
Lead Pastor/Apostolic Leader
The Visionary/Apostolic leader is responsible for seeking God and casting vision for the overall direction of this house. This leader is held accountable by the Elders and Apostolic Overseers, but is not bound by a vote for decision making concerning direction, ministry, or general operations. The Apostolic Leader honors prophetic voices (inside and outside the house) to help guide the house in decisions and overall direction. We are a house with its foundations built on apostles and prophets and leading/equipping with pastors, evangelists, and teachers).
Kyle has served in youth ministry and worship teams throughout South Carolina and Georgia with Baptist churches, Methodist churches, Assemblies of God churches, Church of God churches, and with non-denominational ministries throughout the southeast. Kyle obtained his degree of theology from Beacon University’s Christian Life School of Theology and has served in part-time ministry positions since 2003 and full time ministry since 2006. God began to give Kyle a vision to start a church that was Kingdom focused and founded Relentless Church in 2014. Kyle has been ordained through Redemption Ministerial Fellowship International (RMFI) with Apostle Ron Carpenter and Bishop Paul Gaerhing and has aligned and been commissioned under Dutch Sheets with NEI (Network Ekklesia International). He has a heart to see people being empowered in their gifts and abilities to accomplish their purpose as citizens of the Kingdom of God throughout the city of Savannah, the United States, and the world.
Elders are spiritual leaders who set an example in their faith and conduct of life and are responsible for the spiritual government, direction and leadership of the house under the submission to the Apostolic leader.
