Pastors and Staff

Brad & Kim Oyler

Lead Pastors

Pastor Brad Oyler is a lifetime resident of Independence, MO. He was saved at the age of 24 and was miraculously delivered from a life of alcoholism and addiction instantaneously by the grace of God. Armed with an incredible testimony, he was ready to share it with everyone. It didn’t take long for him to feel the undeniable call to the ministry. He soon began volunteering in his local church and eventually served as their Youth Pastor.

He began his full-time pastoral ministry as an Outreach Pastor where he served for more than 10 years. Pastor Brad is a hard worker and is revered by all who know him as a man’s man. He is a great example of compassion strength and humility. His preaching style is down to earth and relatable to a new believer or seasoned Christian. His stories will make you laugh, cry, reflect on your life and are guaranteed to make sure you never forget the Biblical principles he is illustrating.
 
He is partnered in ministry with his wife and comedic sidekick, Kim for the past 27 years. She also serves the church in administration and women’s ministries. Kim relates to the ministry with much transparency, grace and joy. She brings much laughter to the church through her animated weekly adventures of the Oyler household. Brad and Kim serve alongside their four handsome sons Smith, Ethan, Cooper and Parker.

Ethan & Nicole Oyler

Youth & Associate Pastors

Ethan and Nicole Oyler became Youth Pastors for Courageous Life Church in 2017.

"Myself and my beautiful wife, Nicole, are the youth pastors at Courageous Life Church. There isn’t anything else I would rather be doing. I have been a Christian my whole life and I am filled with the Holy Spirit. My father, Brad Oyler, is the senior pastor at Courageous Life Church and I am proud to serve with him. I attended both private and public school and am currently attending Bible College so I have views and perspectives on both sides. I want to connect and mentor our young people so we can raise up leaders and change makers in the world. I am called to make this a place of worship and learning. We have created a family atmosphere within the group where young people can escape and be themselves and have support from friends and leaders. Here at Courageous YTH, we are a family and we support everyone from all walks of life and we accept everyone with open arms. Youth is for anyone from 6th-12th grade.  Service times are 6-7:30pm on Sunday nights. You can expect a night full of games, snacks, worship and an excellent service. I hope you check us out!  We would love to have you!" -Ethan
