Pastors Tyler and Crystal Tullos are the founders and lead pastors of StoryHeights Church based in Boston, Massachusetts. They’ve been married since 2003 and are originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Panhandle, Texas. As graduates of Louisiana State University, they love all things LSU Tigers, SEC Football and good food. Both Tyler and Crystal were staff pastors at Healing Place Church for nearly a decade, and were sent out to New England with the support of their pastors and the Association of Related Churches in 2010. They have been ordained and licensed in the state of Massachusetts, and they live and do life in Medfield, diligently raising their four children.
Believers who invest their hearts, time, families, and finances in the building of a local church deserve to have confidence in church leadership. People are looking for leaders who conduct themselves with integrity and respect when making decisions that affect their lives. The elder board ensures that we protect our church's vision and mission to reach the one person who needs to have their story connected with God's story.
Protected by a Pastoral Board
The Pastoral Board is led by the Lead Pastors, Tyler and Crystal Tullos. This board oversees the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church. These pastors serve the congregation and are responsible for the development of the spiritual life of the church and who oversee the finances and direct the provision of the facilities needed by the church. The pastoral board serves as what the Bible calls “Elders.” Our Elder Board's main job is to protect our church's vision and mission and ensure that we hit our target of connecting one person at a time to God's story. The StoryHeights Church Pastoral Board members are:
- Tyler Tullos
- Crystal Tullos
- Steve Engstrand
- Ali Engstrand
- Danny Rivera
- Talia Rivera

Deacons and Ministry Leadership
The lead pastors’ main function of the church is to equip every Christian at StoryHeights to do ministry.

These leaders are what the Bible calls “Deacons.” We also have ministries that are lead by ministry team leaders. The current deacons and ministry team leaders are:
