Tyler Wigg-Stevenson serves as Assistant Pastor at Little Trinity, with a special focus on the church's neighbourhood engagement. He brings a diverse background to his ministry here, having spent most of his adult career in faith-based advocacy for the abolition of nuclear weapons. He was also an ordained Baptist minister for eight years before becoming Anglican, and retains that tradition’s commitment to biblical preaching. Prior to arriving at Little Trinity, Tyler served as an Associate Pastor at St. George the Martyr, and did liturgical placements at St. Bart’s (Regent Park) and St. Mary Magdalene’s.
Tyler holds a BA from Swarthmore College (Religious Studies/English), a MDiv from Yale Divinity School, and is a doctoral student in interdisciplinary theology at the University of Toronto, writing on secularity. He has written extensively in popular media about issues of faith and culture and is the author of three books: Brand Jesus: Christianity in a Consumerist Age
(2007), The World Is Not Ours To Save
(2013), and Fighting for Peace: Your Role in a Culture of Violence
(2014, with Carol Howard Merritt).
Tyler has been married since 2005 to Natalie, a theologian teaching at the University of Toronto, and they have two young daughters, Georgia and Heloise.Contact
