schedule for the weekend’s activities. They have been designed to help
facilitate both introduction and interaction for the whole congregation,
including youth, parents, leadership, and staff. You will also see Tyler’s CV.
He currently serves as Pastor of Worship and Youth at his church in
Mauriceville, TX and is following the burden he has to
focus on youth ministry.
Tyler is a gifted teacher and preacher with a clear vision and a personal calling for youth ministry. His passion is to prepare youth with a solid foundation, both in heart and mind, for a walk with Jesus that thrives through the challenges of college and young adulthood. His love of apologetics will no doubt help our youth face the philosophical and moral battles they face in our culture today.
You will hear more about and from Tyler in the days to come, but please remain in prayer for God to give a clear sense of his leadership to WGC and the Ellisons as we pursue this path of ministry together.
Please also note that there will be a congregational meeting Sunday morning July 9 to facilitate the vote on Tyler’s candidacy.
