Welcome, Tyler Stanhope

On October 4 the LPC Session announced the appointment of  Tyler Stanhope as our new Youth Director. The elders wrote to the congregation:

What a joy to let you know that Tyler Stanhope has accepted the position of part time interim Youth Director at LPC.  Tyler will meet the youth this coming Thursday evening and Sunday morning and begin his 20 hour per week responsibilities as soon thereafter – he wants to finish well with his current employer.

Tyler is 2013 graduate of Cairn University, having earned both a BS (Bible) and a MS (Christian Counseling).  In 2014 he was awarded a Certificate of Advanced Specialization in Christian Counseling from Cairn.

Following graduation, Tyler worked as a social worker, first with Bethanna  and its foster care program and then for the Center for Autism in Philadelphia.  During his time in social service, Tyler’s first love for work in the church was always tugging at his heart, and God’s timing seems perfect –as always – for this this season at LPC to be an answer to that call.

Tyler has been deeply involved at Riverstone Church (Bible Fellowship)  in Yardley since his family moved to Pennsylvania when he was in junior high school.  Tyler not only participated in youth group, but was also a volunteer youth leader throughout his college years. His experience is deep and significant.  He also served as a worship leader and small group leader at Riverstone.  Tyler and Erica have been married for five years, and Erica is an emergency room nurse at Saint Mary’s.

We could go on about Tyler, but the best way for you to share our excitement is to get to know Tyler yourself beginning this Thursday and Sunday!
