Kyle Idleman is a bestselling author and the teaching pastor at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, one of the largest churches in America. He’s most widely known for his award-winning book, not a fan., which has sold more than 1.3 million copies and has sparked a movement among believers to ditch being fans of Jesus and become completely committed followers instead.

Through partnership with City on a Hill Studio, an award-winning production and publishing company, each book is also a video series (with teaching from Kyle), study, and church campaign. Kyle has also developed the following resources with City on a Hill: The Song, The Easter Experience, The Christmas Experience, and H2O.
