Tyler Hartford,

Lead Pastor

Tyler has been Lead Pastor since 2013, and served as Associate from 2006 to 2013.  He married Genessa in 2000 and they have seven children that keep them on their toes and guessing what’s happening next.  Tyler loves to experience God’s creation through travel, both in person and in reading.  Originally from Maine, he tries hard to be a Hoosier but his accent betrays him when excited.


Ron Diener,

Associate Pastor

Ron joined the Pleasant View staff in 1992, and was Lead Pastor from 1993 to 2013.  Now serving as Associate Pastor, he loves providing pastoral care and ministering in the community.  He is currently leading a Spanish/English support group.  He and his wife Marilee have two grown daughters, but their nest is not completely empty.  Often, he can be found working with his many little animals and extensive garden.
