Dr. Tyler Domske - Pastor
Tyler came to WCPC as pastor in March of 2016. Prior to that, Tyler had served four years as Associate Pastor for Youth & Families at Northmont Church in Pittsburgh's north hills, and four years as Associate Pastor for Youth at First Presbyterian Church of Mooresville, North Carolina. Tyler is a graduate of Westminster College (BA in History, 2002) and the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary (Masters in Divinity, 2008), and completed his doctoral degree through UDTS in 2017. The focus of his doctoral thesis is the relationship between how a church identifies itself and its function in relation to how a church educates itself: if we don't know who we are, how can we know what we are called to do? Prior to seminary, Tyler taught history and social studies in public schools in Florida and just outside of Chicago.
Tyler is deeply focused on seeking God and learning more about God each day. Of particular interest is finding signs of God in our everyday life - within the culture and the media that we consume - allowing our faith to permeate our every day life rather than being cordoned off into subsets that never interact. Essentially, cultivating a faith that is real and is not threatened by our Monday to Saturday life, but flourishes in it.
Tyler's wife Adrien has a far more interesting life than he has, as she worked as a marine mammal trainer (working with dolphins), an animal keeper (working with walrus, seals, and sea lions), an aquarist (working with fish, birds, otters, and alligators), and a herpetologist (working with reptiles & amphibians). Together, they have three children: Elliott, Harper, and Judah, and a menagerie of pets.
