Youth Pastors

Mary Elizabeth and Tyler Waters-Smith

Mary Elizabeth and Tyler met at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, TN, where they each received degrees in Intercultural Studies. Tyler grew up in Georgia before heading to Nashville to answer God’s call on his life to ministry. During his time at Trevecca, he became passionate about God’s work in the local church and has continually sought to be faithful to that calling. Tyler is working towards a Master of Divinity degree at Nazarene Theological Seminary. Mary Elizabeth remains passionate about cross cultural and outreach ministry. She has spent her time in higher education developing her skills in listening and understanding others as she prepares for her call to ministry. She continues her education at Nazarene Theological Seminary working towards a Master of Arts in Theological Studies degree. Mary Elizabeth and Tyler understand their call to be a partnership in ministry and life and are learning what that looks like. They have been the youth pastors at Southwood since September 2018 and are passionate about guiding Southwood’s teens to grow in their own faith and chose to follow Jesus into the world.
