Co-Pastors Tyler and Mary Elizabeth 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 middle 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 is from Mississippi. She is passionate about cross-cultural, intergenerational, 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. They became the Co-Pastors at Manchester Nazarene in January 2021 and are passionate about shepherding the people to be a community that Loves God, loves others, and makes disciples.
