About the Author

My name is Tyler Helfers. After spending time on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ’s Latino ministry, Destino, I made the transition to ministering in the local church, and now serve as the director of Areopagus (campus ministry of the Christian Reformed Church at Iowa State University).  It is a great joy and privilege to serve God and His Bride in these ways.      IMG_0394

I am a graduate of St. Cloud State University (Bachelor of Arts in Justice), and hold a Certificate in Biblical Studies from Western Seminary. Currently, I am enrolled at Birmingham Theological Seminary, pursuing a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies.  

God has blessed me with an amazing wife, Christina, who also graduated from SCSU.  In addition to all this, I am an avid sports fan (St. Louis Cardinals, University of Notre Dame athletics, Liverpool FC, Chicago Blackhawks), and enjoy playing sports as well.  My other passions include hiking, reading, and writing.


This blog exists to help stir people up to become disciple-making disciples who treasure the Gospel and desire to glorify God in all facets of their lives.  John Calvin believed that brevity and clarity were two crucial points for writing, teaching, and preaching.  In keeping with this idea, I have titled this blog “Brevity & Clarity” with the hope that each post, resource or link would provide brief, clear, and edifying information for God’s people.
