Pastor Tyler Reed
Tyler is a native to the area, having grown up in Canyon Lake, TX where he first felt called to ministry as a freshman attending Smithson Valley High School. Upon graduating High School in 2008, Tyler left to attend The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, TX where he majored in Christian Studies. Having spent 11 years in Central Texas attending college and gaining ministry experience, Tyler was thrilled at the opportunity to move back home with his wife Emily and their daughter Bailey to begin serving at First Protestant in 2019. Tyler is currently completing his Masters of Divinity at Denver Seminary. In addition to serving in the church and taking part in community life throughout New Braunfels, Tyler enjoys watching and writing about film as well as spending time outdoors with his family on the lake wakeboarding, riding his dirt bike, and cheering on the San Antonio Spurs. Tyler attempts to live his life by his favorite verse from Micah 6:8 which says, “He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? But to seek justice, love mercy, and to walk humbly before your God.
