Pastor: Tyler Chavis

Tyler was raised in Newhebron, MS.  It was during his time there that Tyler surrendered his life to Christ and eventually surrendered his life to vocational ministry.  He is a graduate of Jones County Junior College and the University of Southern Mississippi, and he is slowly working toward being a graduate of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.  During his time at USM and following his graduation, Tyler held a variety of jobs as he worked in different aspects of agriculture, the oil industry, and retail sales.  He has also coached junior high athletics and taught middle school.

The Lord called Tyler and his wife, Brittany, to vocational ministry in 2010.  He served as the Associate Pastor/Youth Minister at Newhebron Baptist Church (Lawrence County) and Pastor of White Oak Baptist Church (Smith County) prior to being called to serve as Pastor at Foxworth First Baptist Church in May of 2018.

Tyler and Brittany have 2 children (Jase and Jessa), but it is not uncommon for more children to be in their home as they have also served as foster parents.

Tyler enjoys spending time with family, reading, hunting, fishing, and playing golf.  He counts it his joy to serve the Lord by serving the local church!
