Thylin Carlstedt

Raised by a single 16 year old mom in small town Iowa, Thylin soon found himself living a lifestyle of drug and alcohol abuse. He ended up failing out of high school and having run ins with the law. It was when a small town pastor and family began to reach out into Thylin's life that everything changed. That family invited Thylin to live in their home, and he eventually married the Pastors daughter. Thylin's story is a story of redemption, and God's relentless pursuit of those He loves. Thylin has since graduated from Crown College (CMA) with a degree in Youth Ministry, and he has served faithfully at his local church for the last 10 years volunteering on the youth team.
