Lead Pastor

Chris Daum

As a child, Chris always found himself believing for more when it came to this life.  At age eight, his more became the reality of Jesus in his life.  He has never stopped seeking a mountain moving faith and God has allowed him to experience His perfect provision for over 20+ years of ministry.  Formally equipped for ministry at Cincinnati Christian University, the Holy Spirit continues to build upon this truth instilled in Chris' life.  Throughout his journey of faith, Chris has had the privilege of serving in both the smaller congregation and the mega church model.  It is his desire to bring the best of both models to TLC.  Troy and the Miami Valley have been both his home as a child and his passion for ministry.


Pastor of Family Ministries

Tyler Woodruff

Pastor Tyler grew up near Cincinnati, Ohio, this is where he enjoyed physical activities such as wrestling, baseball and football. He also was very involved with a Christian Hardcore Band. After playing 11 years with his band and ministering to numerous teens and adults, he realized that music was a calling for a season and made the difficult decision to give it up and transition into a Youth Pastor position. 


The Lord led him to start serving at a local church, volunteering for 6  years and then becoming full time staff in 2018. In February of 2019 Pastor Tyler took on the role Pastor of Family Ministries at TLC.  With a passion to see youth of all ages, to grow in their relationship with God and truly grasp what it means to be a Christ-follower, he now brings that passion and energy to True Life Community Church!

Worship Director

Scott Knepper

From an early age, Scott knew that God had something planned for him but wasn't sure what. He had many interests - technology, service work, and music to name a few. As a teenager attending a church camp, God inspired Scott to pick up a guitar and to teach himself to play contemporary worship music. From there, his passion for worshiping and leading others in worship really took hold. Scott enjoys many types of worship music; everything from the hymns of his childhood to the latest releases.

Scott has been involved in church worship and leadership since 2006 and has been on staff at TLC since June 2018. Scott was born and raised in the Miami Valley and considers it his home and his mission field.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
