The Board of Directors of Life Center Assembly of God is pleased to announce the appointment of Pastor Tyler Sollie as the church’s Senior Pastor.
“We are thrilled to confirm Tyler and Amber Sollie as Life Center’s new Senior Pastors,” said Nate Angelo, Chairman of the Life Center Board of Directors. “Their roots run deep in the 253 and their heart and passion for Jesus is clear. We look forward to this next season for Life Center as we celebrate 100 years. Tyler’s vision to sustain a generational church that impacts the 253 for Jesus excites us as a church body. Tyler and Amber’s years in ministry outside this area groomed them well for such a time as this. The humility with which Tyler leads will continue to plant seeds and grow roots.”
Tyler Sollie’s relationship with Life Center began in the 1970s when his parents met and were married at the church. He graduated from Life Christian Academy in 1998 before embarking on a ministry journey that would ultimately bring him and his wife Amber back to Life Center to serve as the Lead Pastors of Life Center Baker. Shortly thereafter, Sollie oversaw transitions in staff and location as Life Center Baker and Real Life Family Center merged into what is now Life Center Rainier. Before being confirmed as Senior Pastor of Life Center, Sollie acted as Interim Lead Pastor, providing leadership, guidance, and prayer for staff members and church attendees alike.
Sollie is an accredited minister through the Assemblies of God with over 20 years of experience working in ministry. He has served as Youth Pastor of Eastridge Church in Issaquah, Wash., Senior Associate Pastor of Stone Church in Yakima, Wash., Network Youth Director of the Northwest Ministry Network, and Lead Pastor of Life Center’s Rainier campus. In these roles, he developed strong leadership skills and a passion of knowing Jesus and making Him known.
Sollie holds a BA in Youth Ministry and Biblical Studies from Northwest University.
