Tyler Parker

Christian Union Ministry Fellow at Harvard

tyler parkerTyler was born and raised in High Springs, FL. During his undergraduate years at Harvard University, he earned an A.B. in Government and a secondary in Filmmaking. He joined Harvard College Faith and Action in his freshman spring, where Christian Union's unique approach to intellectually rigorous and theologically faithful teaching compelled him to stay and grow as a spiritual person.

To give back to HCFA and to explore a call into ministry, he is staying at Harvard to intern with the fellowship. He served as a ministry team leader within HCFA and as an Assistant Bible Course Leader for the senior class. While in college, he also served as a pastoral intern for Pastor Adam Mabry of Aletheia Church in Cambridge, MA. 

In his free time, Tyler loves to watch and make movies, practice percussion, talk politics, and dream about God's kingdom. He lives in the Boston area with two friends who are also HCFA alum.
