Our Pastors

Samuel Tyler

Pastor Samuel Tyler is a native of Newport News, Virginia.   He is married to Pastor Andrea Tyler and is a father and grandfather. As a child, he had a strong desire to become a veterinarian. He pursued that dream and graduated from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine.  While preparing for graduation at Tuskegee, he had a visitation from The Lord.  As Samuel began to seek God in earnest, he realized a call to the ministry. In 1983, he began to function in a teaching ministry while involved in helping establish local churches.  Pastor Tyler is an ordained minister by the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel headquartered in Los Angeles, California.

Samuel’s sole desire is to know The Lord, following Him wherever He leads.  Pastor Tyler’s desire is to see the lives of people transformed by the glory of God and experiencing His goodness and love.
