Tyler has been involved with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church since about 1981. He spent much of his childhood in the Fairfield congregation in Illinois. Tyler earned a bachelor’s degree in Marketing at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
After college he moved to Danville, VA where he volunteered for a few years with a youth group and was later hired by the congregation on a part-time basis. Shortly after taking the position, Tusculum Cumberland Presbyterian in Nashville, TN called and offered him a full-time position. That was October 2000, and he’s still here.
Tyler has a beautiful wife, Brittany, and two beautiful daughters, Elizabeth Ryan and Taylor Alexis, who light up every room they enter. He is thankful for the grace and love of God displayed by all of them.
