Welcome Aboard, Pastor T
by NCC Staff
Tyler Kelce recently joined the staff full-time as Family Pastor, a new position for NCC. He will provide guidance, energy, oversight, and daily direction to all aspects of ministry from our infants through High School students. He will implement New Covenant’s vision and values throughout children and student ministries, and will work with church leadership to provide support and encouragement to parents.
Tyler started attending NCC in 1996 at the age of 13; he came to the youth meetings with his brother, Chris, during Pastor Mark’s time as Youth Pastor. After high school, Tyler attended Elim Bible Institute (NY) where he took the Pastoral Ministry track, along with all the Bible courses required. While at Elim, he volunteered at a children’s prison in upstate New York for three years and interned with the Children’s Pastor at Elim Gospel Church. Tyler also helped with youth mission trips over at Liberty Christian Fellowship (Portsmouth). He is husband to Stephanie and father to Rianna, Sophia, John Wallace, Eli and Reuben.
Tyler has been a significant part of NCC, serving our children for the past 12 years, both as a volunteer and since 2013, as a part-time intern for NCC’s Children’s Ministry. Tyler’s love for kids and his desire to see them become fully devoted Christ followers is evident in the way he ministers to kids of all ages.
Tyler recently shared his thoughts on this new adventure in his life.
“I am so excited about this new position at NCC. I have a very unique opportunity in that I will be serving people I already know and love. I’m a little nervous of the seemingly endless tasks in front of me—all the many things I want to do and the things the people serving around me want to see happen—but I am so incredibly encouraged in knowing the heart our church has for our children and students. I am encouraged at knowing how much is already being poured into their lives by the leaders and ministry teams already in place. I am also excited at the thought of serving full time, after serving at the church and working in construction for 13 years. I have plans to grow the effectiveness and quality of our Sunday morning Kids Church programs and assist our dedicated Children’s Ministry teams. I will also come alongside of the youth staff who have been faithfully serving our students, to reach them and help them walk out their lives in Christ. I also want to increase the visibility and involvement of our children and youth in the church as a whole. I look forward to serving alongside the Body at New Covenant as we impact and are impacted by the younger part of our church family.”
