Allyn and Traci Kyes have been married 27 years and have three adult daughters (Rachel, Taylor, and Emma), one son-in-law (John, who goes with Taylor), a granddaughter (Ellie Jean), and another grandbaby on the way. Once they make the move from Florida to Tucson (the place he was born and has always considered home), Allyn will be an assisting priest working with Dean Pete Forbes at King’s Cross Anglican in Oro Valley. After serving on InterVarsity’s Graduate and Faculty Ministries staff at the University of Florida for more than 20 years, Allyn is excited to move back to the West and back into parish ministry, something he did for a number of years at an Episcopal church in Gainesville. An ordained priest, Allyn has a Master’s Degree in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics from Talbot School of Theology and another Master’s in Political Science from Villanova. His great passion in life is teaching and ministering to people through counseling and inner-healing, helping them to live in the freedom of Christ and in who God intended them to be. In his spare time, he enjoys golf, cycling, hiking, camping, and other outdoor adventures. Traci is the director of global business development for Thermo Fisher Scientific, but her great joys in life are early mornings with God, sunrises and sunsets, spending time with her family, and writing children’s books…and Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food ice cream!
