Greetings from Pastor Arlo
I am so blessed to be serving here at Shadow Hills Presbyterian Church.
I was born and raised in Southern California. Growing up, I spent my free time on the stage, at the beach, camping and at Church. I attended the University of California in Santa Barbara and majored in Acting and Playwriting. During summer breaks, I worked at Ecke YMCA in camp programming and volunteered at Calvin Crest. Calvin Crest is a beautiful Presbyterian Camp & Retreat Center located right outside of Yosemite. At Calvin Crest, one of the leaders encouraged me to consider going into ministry.
Following a year of discernment, I attended Columbia Theological Seminary near Atlanta, Georgia. In Seminary, I spent two years serving at StandUp For Kids in the heart of downtown Atlanta. Stand Up for Kids is a non-profit that works with America’s street kids and children who have been forced into prostitution. I also served at Old First Presbyterian Church in San Francisco as the Pastoral Intern.
After Seminary, I accepted a call as the Associate Pastor at the First Presbyterian Church of Metuchen, New Jersey. While on the East Coast, I happily fell in love with Lafayette College theatre technical director Zach Tysinger and we were married in August 2014. We have a miniature schnauzer named Bellatrix who we adore.
After we were married, Zach and I felt lead to pursue a call at a Church that is dedicated to worship, mission and the community. We found that call at Shadow Hills Presbyterian Church and are so glad to be here!
I am looking forward to getting to know you better, engaging in community outreach, preaching the Gospel, enjoying potlucks and celebrating the life of Christ with you!
Rev. Arlo Tysinger
