Pastors & Staff

Tyson Wahl 

Lead Pastor

Pastor Tyson Wahl, having grown up in Southern California, came to the Northeast to attend Baptist Bible College (now Clark Summit University) in Clarks Summit, PA where he met and married his true love, Heidi, in 1997. After graduating from BBC and serving the Lord as a Bible teacher at Hemet Christian school in Hemet, CA, Tyson and Heidi felt GOD calling them to return to this area to join the staff of Crossroads under the leadership of Pastor Jim Fox. Together, Tyson and Heidi have worked and developed the many facets of our children and youth ministries. After ten years as Youth Pastor, our church called Tyson to become Lead Pastor, as Pastor Jim Fox retired in 2014.

Pastor Tyson spends much of his time studying, mentoring, counseling, and teaching. Always focusing on his Next Step, he recently completed his Doctorate Studies, earning a Doctorate in Discipleship and Mentoring. During his free time, he travels with his wife, soaks up the sun by the pool, takes the motorcycle out with the guys, shares Discipleship around the world, and continuously thinks of ways to do ministry better for our community and culture.

Tyler Schutt

Youth Pastor

Tyler Schutt, from Waverly, NY first came to Crossroads Family Ministries as a young boy in our Youth Group, initially led by Pastor Tyson and then Pastor Jeremy. In 2016 he began his journey into Pastoral Studies at Davis College in Johnson City, NY. In the summer of 2019, Tyler took on an Internship here at Crossroads under both Pastor Tyson and Pastor Jeremy. Following his graduation from Davis College in May of 2020 Tyler was asked to stay on as the Interim Youth Pastor as we said farewell to Pastor Jeremy Maslin and his family as they felt God's leading to another church as Lead Pastor. Pastor Tyler was soon hired on as our Youth Pastor and now oversees our Children and Youth Ministry programs. He is passionate about ministering to our children and their families and pours into the lives of the youth that come through his doors. He also enjoys a good WWE match, is often caught echoing a little Chris Farley, and is instrumental in most drama and video productions that happen at Crossroads Family Ministries. Pastor Tyler is married to his sweetheart Nikki and they have been blessed with a  sweet baby girl.
