Operation Barnabas

Tyler W. Summers is the CEO and Lead Officer of Operation Barnabas. He is married to his wife Laura and father to their three kids: River, Jenna, and Emma. In addition to serving with Operation Barnabas, he regularly volunteers in the kids ministry and Upward basketball league at Shindler Drive Baptist Church.

Growing up in Tulsa, OK, Tyler spent much of his childhood and even adulthood struggling to find who he was and where he fit. Due to this internal conflict, Tyler found himself abusing drugs and alcohol and having run-ins with law enforcement, a point at which he believed God showed up in his life. Tyler would go on to enlist in the United States Navy in May of 2006 and would lead him to serve aboard the USS Enterprise CVN-65 as an enlisted member of the engineering department, the USS Momsen DDG-62, and several smaller ships while working alongside DESRON 9 and Regional Support Organization PNW.

In his time with Operation Barnabas, Tyler has transitioned from being a mentor, to Mentor Officer, and to his current role as CEO and Lead Officer. One thing he ensures to be made known to all he meets is that he loves Jesus and loves his family. Despite the many hats he wears and the many roles he leads in, Tyler maintains his focus on community and relationship with those around him.
