Tyler Stanhope Named New Youth Director and Program Associate

At its January meeting, the Session extended a call to Tyler Stanhope to join the LPC staff as full time Youth Director and Program Associate. Tyler’s role as Youth Director will be expanded from the part-time position he has held since October and he will assume additional responsibilities working with the Evangelism and Adult Ministries Committees. He will begin his full time responsibilities February 1.

In a review of Tyler’s first 60 days with LPC, Pastor Bill Teague wrote:

Tyler has demonstrated energy, vision, and commitment to developing LPC’s youth ministry into an exciting program of relational discipleship and activities that meet the needs of our youth and their friends.

 Tyler has modeled the beginnings of a relationship-based ministry in his own contact with the youth and the leaders of our program. His academic and professional training and experience as well as his knowledge of church ministry show his great enthusiasm for Christ and the Gospel.

Tyler holds a BS in Bible and a MS in Christian Counseling from Cairn University and has worked with youth and their families at Bethanna and the Center for Autism. Tyler and his wife Erica come to us from Riverstone Church in Yardley where both were deeply involved as ministry volunteers.

Welcome, again, Tyler and Erica!
