The Pastors on staff at Southland all have one goal, to see people grow in their relationship with Christ. Our pastors are devoted to studying the Bible, prayer, and leading in humility.


Tim Miles - Lead Pastor

Pastor Tim and his wife Joy moved to from Michigan to St. George in 1985, where Southland Bible Church was born. After praying for someone to come to the area to plant a church Tim and Joy realized they were the people God was calling.

Pastor Tim has faithfully served the church for 33 years and has never wavered in his faithfulness to accurately preach and teach what the Bible has to say. 

Pastor Tim is a graduate of Grand Rapids School of the Bible and Music. He serves on the board of directors for Frontier School of the Bible and Tent Makers Bible Missions. Tim's passion for the truth and love for people is evident in his  service to the church body and the other organizations with which he is associated.

Dan Slyter - Associate Pastor

Pastor Dan and His wife Lorene have been faithfully attending Southland since 1991 after moving from Northern California.

As the church grew, the need for an Associate Pastor arose. Southland saw in Pastor Dan the generosity and character of a man worthy of the calling, and in 1998 Pastor Dan joined the staff.

Pastor Dan is dedicated to serving the church.  Be it overseeing the maintenance and up keep of the facility, teaching and preaching, leading Bible studies, or meeting with people one on one. Pastor Dan has also been instrumental in the development and growth of our camp, Cedar Mountain Retreat (CMR). Like Pastor Tim, Pastor Dan also serves on the board of directors at Frontier School of the Bible.



Richie Gibson - Youth Pastor

After playing in a Christian band Pastor Richie felt the calling into youth ministry and has served as a youth pastor for more than a decade. In 2016, after church planting in Lehi, Utah, for 6 years, he and his wife, Gregan, moved to St. George and joined the staff at Southland.  Gregan grew up at Southland and went to Frontier School of the Bible to receive biblical training. She is happy to be back at her home church, serving with her family.

Pastor Richie teaches the youth group, preaches the Sunday evening service, leads music for Sunday morning service, and is involved in all 5 weeks of Cedar Mountain Retreat (CMR) every summer.
