Tyler Lovio-Coley

House Church Leader

Testimony

I came to faith at the young age of five on the redwood coasts of Humboldt County in Northern California, which has been and still is home to both my wife and I’s families going back multiple generations. While my faith is my own it is rooted in the generational context of my parents and grandparents, who trace their born again experience to the Jesus People revivals of 1960’s and 70’s. Thus my faith is layered with an inherited organic west coast counter cultural charisma that leans into the Spirit, mixed with a love for studious dedication to knowing as much as we can about the truth revealed through God’s word and creation. My wife Alysia and I have been married for over seven years and together for over twelve, we both have a dedication to seeing the love and justice of God encounter individual hearts as well as change unjust systems.

Ministry

The Space is fellowship for young adults (*25-35), married or single, practicing the way of Jesus, processing the complexities of life and enjoying the company of friends.

We’ll gather in homes, community spaces, parks, pubs, churches and other various locations around northern Humboldt a few times a month (with retreats a few times a year) to share meals, explore spiritual formation, ask good questions and have some fun.

The Space is meant to either complement your current church home or become a core place of community for those who are inclined. Come to as many or as little of the gatherings that work for your current season.

*Age Range: 25 to 35 

  • In place as a guideline, but open to those a few years outside the range, younger or older.

  • Currently no childcare.

  • The Space: College Years (18-25) is in the works.

  • There will be other gatherings open to families and all age groups. 

 

Prior Experience 

I have been involved in ministry in some form or another since I was ten. I have been a worship leader/youth leader for high school,college age groups and church camps. Lead regional, cross cultural and cross denominal gatherings for worship, prayer and reconciliation. I have been on a handful of trips overseas for ministry, projects or fellowship including Mexico, Wales (UK), Uganda, Native American Nations, and Australia.

Education wise, I have a BA in Journalism (Public Relations) from Cal Poly Humboldt, an Advanced Diploma of Pastoral Ministry from Hillsong College (Hillsong Church, Sydney Australia) and am currently working on Masters of Theology from NAIITS: An Indiginous Learning Community.

I am coming up on a decade of learning from and working in ministry alongside Indiginous peoples both in a local context in the US as well as in Australia. Currently I am still connected to Hillsong, helping to create spaces for Indginous peoples to fellowship and be heard more. 

Alysia has worked in the education space for over a decade and currently teaches at a local high school. She also completed her BA from Cal Poly Humboldt and Diploma of Pastoral ministry from Hillsong College.
