Tyler began working at the Foundation in October 2018. Prior to this, Tyler worked as a coffee barista while he and his wife, Mary Elizabeth, transitioned into their new life together in Kansas City.

Tyler grew up in Sandersville, Georgia, where most of his family still lives. He graduated from Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tennessee, with a Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Studies with minors in social work and biblical studies. He is currently attending Nazarene Theological Seminary to earn his Master of Divinity degree.

Tyler is a District Licensed Minister in the Church of the Nazarene and he is serving, with his wife, as co-youth pastor for Southwood Church of the Nazarene in Raytown, Missouri. Tyler is passionate about the God’s church and loves participating in the work that the Church of the Nazarene is doing in the world. Tyler and Mary Elizabeth look forward to serving as lead pastors in the Church of the Nazarene and perhaps to serving overseas if God calls them there.
