Tyler has served Bethel as Associate Pastor since 2013. He’s a graduate of East Tennessee State University (Bachelor of Business Administration, 2007) and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity, 2012). While attending SBTS in Louisville, KY, he served as an elder and pastor of administration of Crossing Church.
Born and raised in Johnson City, TN, Tyler and his wife, Whitney, were married in 2007 and have three amazing kiddos (James, Phoebe, and Marie). Tyler loves going on dates with Whitney, which usually involve obstacle course training or rock climbing; recently, the two of them were course testers for the television show American Ninja Warrior (season 11). He also enjoys spending time with his family (especially “family date nights” on Fridays), hanging out with his community group, playing nerdy board games with friends, reading, drinking coffee (especially coffee that was brewed in his Chemex or some other contraption that looks like it belongs in a lab), eating at local restaurants you can’t find anywhere else, and watching and playing a variety of sports.
