Gregg Kite was born and raised in Houston, TX, and moved to Wamego in October of 2022. He has been a Christian since he was 10 years old, and has been in some form of active ministry since he was a teenager, working with youth, music, and more. Most recently, he served as an elder in his church in Houston before moving to Kansas.

Gregg received a B.A in History from Texas A&M University and then pursued a teaching certificate, working in education for 8 years before answering a call to the ministry. He is currently a student at Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary, where he is pursuing a Master's of Divinity.

As he has continued his studies for ministry, his interests have led him to create "Regener8d Radio", a podcast that discusses theology from a Reformed Baptist perspective, interviewing theologians from across the world. You can find this podcast on YouTube and all podcasting platforms.

Gregg's hobbies include reading (mostly for seminary!), podcasting, outdoor activities with his kids, and playing games with friends. He is married to the lovely Libby, and has four children: Alana, Sara, Caleb, and Erin.
