Tyler is lead pastor of Pleasant View Church (Goshen, IN).  He and his wife Genessa (Brenneman) have been married for 20 years and have seven children. His passions include eating new foods, exploring the visual arts and reading historical non-fiction.  Tyler has immersive travel experience that has taken him throughout the Middle East, Europe, Asia, and Africa.  Tyler enjoys drawing connections between the local congregation and the global church, and invites others to make those connections with him. "I believe the only way we see as 'the other' sees is to meet them face to face, and then we can begin to envision what it means to be the global body of Christ." says Tyler. Tyler also has a deep love for making Scripture come to life and a passion for discovering Christ in the Old Testament – he invites others to join him in discovering our shared faith history.
