Pastor Tyler Buford, Associate Pastor

Pastor Tyler Buford was baptized on July 22nd, 2006 confessing faith in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of his sins.  Two years after his conversion experience, God began to impress Pastor Buford that He wanted him to share his faith in a more public way.  Pastor Buford eventually obeyed these promptings from the Lord, changed his studies from Physical Therapy to Theology and committed his entire life to ministry. While attending Oakwood University, he traveled around the United States and the World sharing his faith in Jesus Christ.  During his final year in school, Pastor Buford was miraculously selected by the South Central Conference to carry sponsorship to Andrews University.
Pastor Buford has serves as the associate youth pastor for Grace Temple Seventh-day Adventist Church in Fort Worth, Texas (2011-2012); the interim youth pastor at Houston International SDA church (2014-2015); Ellen G. White Estate Research Assistant (2012-2015); Oakwood School of Religion Bible Worker (2014-2015); and NAPS volunteer.
Pastor Buford is happily married to Kristen Buford, who herself is a passionate educator and administrator, with ambitions to enhance Adventist Education.  When asked what his life goal is, Pastor Buford responds, “It’s the prayer I’ve had since I gave my life to Jesus at eighteen, Lord? Please save me and lead me down a path in life where I can bring the most people with me to heaven.”  Pastor Buford’s favorite scripture is Luke 1:17; ” And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
