Meet Our Staff:
Rev. Dr. Tyler Domske
Prior coming to WCPC as pastor in 2016, 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. He 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 greater 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 has three children and a menagerie of pets.
Director of Music
Andrew joined the WCPC staff in spring of 2018 as our Director of Music, heading up all the music of the church, including the choir, bells ensemble, and worship music at both the traditional and contemporary services. Andrew’s involvement in church music began at a young age, as his father was Presbyterian minister and Andrew grew up singing in church choir.
Andrew graduated with a BFA in music performance in violin and viola from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. He is a published composer and currently holds the title of principle viola in the Washington Symphony Orchestra, for which he is also the Principal Arranger. He is the former concert master of the Pittsburgh Savoyards orchestra and Assistant Conductor of the Pittsburgh Savoyards Opera Company.
Director of Wexford Children's Center
Miss Susan became the director of the Wexford Children's Center in 2009. Previous to this, she served on the WCC Board, acted as Director in the summer of 2001, has been an assistant teacher for the 5 year old class, and is also a former WCC parent. Miss Susan is a long-standing member of the Wexford Community Presbyterian Church.
Jason Dauer, M.Div.
Office and Communications Coordinator
Jason grew up in Wexford, having graduated from North Allegheny in 2013. He is part of the 1001 New Worshiping Community movement in the PC(USA), working to form new faith communities. From church polity to cookouts and stained glass, Jason loves the Church, yet he has experienced the harm it can cause when it does not realize its power. As he prepares for ordination in the PC(USA), he is listening for God to sharpen his calling in ministry. He hopes to create space of what the Church can be, as well as help congregations live into their full potential.
Susan is a graduate of Geneva College where she received The Bachelor of Arts Degree in Organ Performance and Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Education. After graduation, she worked for five years teaching music education in primary, middle and high school in the Riverside and Seneca Valley School Districts.
She is a piano and organ instructor, teaching private lessons in her music studio at her home in Freedom. Her professional experience as a church musician includes: Organist and Children’s Choir Director at First Baptist Church, Rochester, where she also directed musicals for children and adults; Director of Music and Organist at Aliquippa First United Methodist Church, where she conducted the Adult and Children’s Choral and Handbell Choirs; Director of the Geneva College Handbell Choirs, where they performed at the Christmas and Spring “Genevans” Choral Concerts.
