  • Tyler Tinsley

    Student & Young Adult Minister

    Tyler was born in Georgia and raised right up the street from here in Winder. He spent 3 years interning at Galilee Christian Church and heard the Lord's call to student ministry. Tyler and Savannah married in April 2020, shortly before joining HMCC's staff. They don't have children yet, but they do have a dog named Zeke. Does that count?

    Tyler has been in ministry in some capacity since 2014. Tyler and Savannah both have a heart for students, family, and a keen sense of adventure. They particularly love the Great Outdoors (camping, anyone?) and sharing the love of Jesus Christ. Tyler's desires are to see our local community thrive with the love of Jesus through student ministry outreach in local schools, to local shelters, and creating a strong Christ-centered environment for our youth to grow, love, thrive, and fellowship.
