Many years ago, an electric guitar showed up on Tyler’s front porch with a note reading: “To Tyler, from Jesus.” Years later, the Lord revealed to him that music would not just be a hobby, but his life’s work.
Through this work, God has gifted him with so many significant memories, both within the church as worship leader, and with his band, Branches.
As Music Ministry Director, Tyler shepherds and cultivates the musical/worship culture of Reality SF, while also guiding the overall experience of Sunday gatherings. He is thankful that God drew him and his wife, Kelly, into this beautiful city, and specifically to Reality SF, where he has found a musical and spiritual community like nowhere else. They live in the Richmond District with their boxer Dobby (a dog, not a professional fighter).
