The Bylers have been in Christian
Ministry together since the late 1960s.
They were marrried n 1964 while
Dr. Phil was in the U.S. Navy.
During that time they became involved
in youth and music ministry, leading
worship and working with youth groups.
After receiving an Honorable Discharge in
1970, they moved to North Georgia, where Dr. Phil
entered college. They continued in music ministry until Dr. Phil
was ordained as a Minister and they began pastoral work.
For the next 45 years, they served a variety of churches, pioneering
new congregations and working to restore others which had fallen into
disrepair. Across the years of labor for the Lord, both of them
eventually earned a doctorate. Judy is a Doctor of Pastoral
Counseling and Phil's doctorate is in Religious Education.
The Bylers are the parents of two married children, and the proud grandparents of seven. Their son Timothy is married to the former Cindy Westphal. Together, they pastor Connection Church in Hinesville, GA. Their daughter Wendy is married to Todd Walters. They own and operate a production, design, and publications company in Keller, TX.
Today, the Bylers again make their home in the mountains of North Georgia where they serve in the pastoral ministry of Trinity Church in McCaysville, GA.
