Tyler Vance is leaving his position at Bank OZK as chief banking officer to pursue a career in ministry as the discipleship pastor at Fellowship Bible Church in Cabot. Vance is an Arkansas native who grew up in Cabot and graduated from Ouachita Baptist University in 1996.
Vance began his career at Bank of the Ozarks in 2006 as senior vice president after working for Deloitte & Touche in the audit department from 1996 to 2001 and Community Bank of Cabot as the executive vice president and chief financial officer from 2001 to 2006.
He moved up the ranks of Bank of the Ozarks when he was promoted as the executive vice president in 2009 and promoted again in 2011 as the chief banking officer. Vance was named a 40 Under 40 honoree for Arkansas Business in 2011. He was promoted one final time in 2013 as the chief operating officer where he remained for nearly six years.
Vance grew up in the church and is currently an elder at Fellowship Bible Church in Cabot. He will begin his new position as discipleship pastor in June.
“At Fellowship’s Cabot campus, we have seen God call families to the mission field, heal all types of hurts, and grow faith in new believers all for His glory and fame. We have been a part of sharing the good news that God, in an act of incredible love, sent Jesus to rescue us from our sin, so all who admit their sin and believe in Him can experience His amazing grace,” says Vance on his elder profile.
