Webinar leaders…

Michael Adam Beck is a pastor, professor, and author. He is a rare breed of practitioner-scholar. Michael and wife Jill are co-pastors of Wildwood and St Marks UMCs, as well as a network of thirteen fresh expressions gathering in tattoo parlors, dog parks, burrito joints, and digital spaces. They have led a series of revitalizations of Florida congregations in rural settings. Michael serves as the Director of Fresh Expressions Florida, Director of the Fresh Expressions House of Studies at United Seminary, and Director of Fresh Expressions for The United Methodist Church. He is the author/co-author of nine books. Michael is a spiritual guide who helps people heal, love, and unleash imagination to create better lives, organizations, and communities. Jill and Michael live with their blended family of eight children and two pugs in Ocala, FL.

Tyler Kleeberger is an appointed clergy for The Farmhouse in rural Metamora, OH of the West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church. Having grown up in Toledo, OH, Tyler went on to attend the University of Mount Union where he graduated in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in Interpersonal & Peace Communication. It was also at Mount Union that Tyler met his spouse Vanessa & started a church on campus. After graduating, they then left for Pasadena, California where Tyler attended Fuller Theological Seminary – only to be brought back to Ohio by the unexpected birth of their first child, Landon. They have since added three more children to their family, Toren, Quinn, and Koen. While Tyler grew up in various Christian circles, he left the church for a season of life, only to come back in hopes of changing the church that he had lost hope in. The Farmhouse, as a new church start, comes out of this vision to reimagine the church in the hopes of reimagining its rural community. Tyler also writes, teaches, consults, and podcasts on the platform Becoming Human and co-hosts the podcast The Bible Archives. Tyler and his family live in Metamora, OH.
