Pastor Tyler has been serving in the church sharing the love of Jesus for over ten years. He began serving at the Family of God in southwest Detroit in the fall of 2013, the ministry that would eventually extend him his first full-time call as a pastor.

Pastor Tyler married Brandi, (one of our amazing teachers here at St. John) in 2019. Together, they enjoy traveling to northern Michigan, country music and line-dancing, cheering for the 2023 National Champion Michigan Wolverines, and being with their families. Tyler is also an avid cyclist, a curious writer and podcaster, a devoted Detroit Red Wings fan, and craft beer enthusiast. (He also may or may not be a Minnesota Vikings fan.)

Favorite Bible Passage:
Galations 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
