In Dec 2007 he was called to Constantia Park Baptist, Pretoria where he became the Associate Pastor. In 2010 Tyrell and Michael Rogers felt led to reach out to the largely secular Northern suburbs of Johannesburg and so they planted Heritage Baptist Church in 2011 in the Craighall Park area, which then moved to Melville. Tyrell lectures on Evangelism and Apologetics at the Baptist Theological College. He was a runner-up in the 2013 South African Blog Awards in the Religious/Spiritual category.

He also hosts a weekly radio program on Radio Pulpit (657 kHz) every Friday morning on "Bible, Theology and Culture" called Table Talk with Tyrell: http://www.ttpod.co.za/.
Tyrell has also been featured on Radio Impact, Talk Radio 702 and the DSTV Channel One Gospel. He has preached at conferences in Germany and at churches in Canada. He has a passion for preaching, the local church, evangelism, apologetics, city churches and cultural studies. He lives with his beautiful wife and two children. Together, they strive to see the gospel make progress in South Africa.
