On July 28, 2013, Tyler rededicated his life to Christ and developed a real, intimate, dependent relationship with Jesus.  "I had never seen myself as a sinner in need of saving, and until I saw myself as a sinner I didn’t see the need for a Savior."  A few short weeks later God rekindled Tyler's calling to ministry.  

 He started by telling his story of hope and transformation in churches across Oklahoma.  Shortly thereafter, He began working for Hope is Alive Ministries providing mentorship and spiritual guidance to men.  What a joy, privilege, and honor that was. Now, God has called him to Canadian Valley Baptist church. 

My Passion:  I want to change the world for Jesus.  I am passionate about a reawakening of the church.  I believe that only through the local church can this change happen.  It will come through finding new ways to effectively reach our students, young adults, and men.  The early church did three things well: community, discipleship, and evangelism.  When the local church embraces these principles, in this demographic, in a fresh way, America will be set on fire for Christ again.

What I'm in to: Pour over coffee, the Catalyst Leadership Podcasts, sermons by Steven Furtick, new books every week, listening to Sidewalk Prophets, Dillon Chase, and Of Dirt and Grace by Hillsong United, but most importanly, spending time with my beautiful wife Chotsie.
