Pastor & Staff

Tyler Daniels


Just a little about me. I am originally from Raleigh, NC. I absolutely love fishing, enjoy woodworking, and working on or tinkering with anything that has an engine. After high school my first degree was in construction management. This was a love of mine, yet God had something else in mind. After my calling into pastoral ministry, in early 2011, I transferred to Mount Olive University to study religion graduating in 2014. In August 2014, I started my studies at Duke Divinity School, obtaining a Master of Divinity in 2018. During my time at Duke I was a student pastor in Roxboro, NC.

In June 2018, I was requested to join the family of Zion here in Leland. My daughter Sadie was born just a few months later in November 2018. I was appointed at Zion UMC (Leland) from July 2018-July 2024. Sadie Mae is my little red-headed bundle of love. She and I are so excited for the next chapter of our journey here at Wrightsboro UMC!

Amanda Hunter

Music Director

Amanda Hunter is super excited to be back on the staff at WUMC. She has a Music Performance degree from East Carolina University, GO PIRATES! She has been a music director in the church since 2007, working in many different denominations including Episcopal and Baptist, but predominantly United Methodist. Amanda and her husband, Chris are newlyweds, and expecting their first baby in March. She also loves working in musical theatre with local companies such as Panache Theatre Company and Thalian Association Community Theater. 

Hannah Nguyen

Children's Director

Hannah is excited to be a part of the Wrightsboro UMC family. Being a preacher's kid in the United Methodist Church, Hannah has been a part of several church’s children’s teams. Hannah has been working with children for as long as she can remember. She started out teaching at a child development center in 2007 and has worked in various positions in public schools from Pre-K to 5th grade, until having her son in 2017 when she decided to stay home. That is where she heard the call to children’s ministry, missing being with the kids but also wanting to spend time with her own. Hannah’s heart is for children to come to know, love and serve Jesus and to help empower parents in their role to be their children’s primary spiritual influencers. Hannah and her husband, CJ, have a son, Luke  and are expecting another little one in May 2022. Spend more than a few minutes with Hannah and you will soon figure out her deep love of all things Disney and musical theater.
