Thomas R Wyatt was born the son and grandson of Pentecostal ministers. He would be the first of his family to attend college. That being Oregon State University, and did so on an athletic scholarship for Track and Field. Upon finishing college, rather than a Bible School for his theological education, he entered what is now the Graduate Theological Union, an affiliation of several Christian Seminaries in the Berkeley, California area. Later he would earn a PhD from the California Graduate School of Theology. He would serve as a Youth Minister at the First Christian Church of San Mateo, California, and a Youth Minister with the Presbyterian Church of Orinda-Lafayette, California, before being called to his home church in Portland, Oregon, where he served for years as Assistant Pastor, and Pastor. He would later move his young family to Southern California to join the Wings of Healing ministries, then in Montebello, California. With the passing of Evelyn Wyatt in 2004, he assumed the helm of the ministry, and moved it to Whittier, California. He was married for 47 years to his beloved Sharon, who passed from cancer in 2017. They had two boys, Gregory and Jeffrey, who are now married and have had five children of their own; Christian, Rhett, Emilia. Johnathan, and Abigail.
