Transfiguration's Clergy Team

The Rev. John B. Wallace, Deacon

A Deacon’s Ministry is varied and personal. They are called upon to be out in the community and to represent Christ to those they come in contact with. They, in turn, bring the concerns of the community into the church and affect change within the Christian communities they serve.

John is a Healthcare Chaplain in the community and Chaplain for the Sheriff’s Department. He also serves as a County Commissioner.​

The Rev. Tyler C. Richards, Priest and Rector

The Ministry of a priest is to teach, to preach, and to preside over the sacraments of the church. They also are to embody Christ to all whom they meet and to minister to the needs of all.  Rectors are called to shepherd a parish by the parish itself.

Fr. Tyler is a 2016 graduate of The School of Theology at The University of the South and a 2013 graduate of The University of Alabama.  He is originally from Alabama and was ordained to the priesthood in The Diocese of Alabama.  He and his wife Colleen are happy to call Indian River home now, and look forward to many happy years of ministry at Transfiguration.
