Tyler Metro Church is a Spirit-filled, Interdenominational church full of friendly, happy people serving the Lord.  We have a dynamic ministry for the entire family.  Our services are filled with freedom of worship and the joy of receiving the Word of God.
VISION
To reap and conserve the harvest.  When founded in 1983, the Holy Spirit spoke to us that we were to be a “reaping church”.  Since that time, we have seen a tremendous harvest here in the East Texas region as well as the uttermost parts of the world.
 
STAFF
Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ.  We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word.  Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
