Tyler is the pastor to college students here at Spotswood. He carries a passion for helping the next generation find their joy in the gospel, while turning over the trajectory of their life to Jesus. He trusted Jesus for himself because of his faithful parents. He grew in his faith because of his Jesus-loving friends and church family, who lovingly spoke and lived the Gospel.
