Information:The Kyle Lake Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund in Communication Studies was established in 209 by friends of Kyle Lake.

Kyle Lake received a B.A. degree from Baylor University in 1994 with majors in speech communication and religion. He graduated with a master of divinity degree from George W. Truett Theological Seminary in 1997. Kyle joined the staff of University Baptist Church (UBC) in Waco, Texas initially as a community pastor and then as a teaching pastor. He was passionate about his work, and his love for and service to under grads was apparent to everyone. He closed each service with the benediction, "Love God, embrace beauty and live life to the fullest," which is still used at UBC today.

Kyle married fellow Baylor alum Jennifer Gornto in 1998 and had three children: daughter Avery Lake and twin sons, Jude and Sutton Lake. Kyle Lake died on October 30, 2005.
