B. Tyler Moyer

International Master Councilor

B. Tyler Moyer of Pennsylvania was installed as the 53rd International Master Councilor of DeMolay International on June 29th, 2019 at the 99th Annual Session in Kansas City, MO.

Tyler joined Pilgrim Chapter on August 13th, 2010. The brother of a Past State Master Councilor, there was no doubt that he would join DeMolay though the impact that membership would have on his life was entirely up to him. Tyler was installed as Master Councilor of Pilgrim Chapter in January 2013, which he credits as an opportunity that gave him many lessons on effective and servant leadership. That summer he took his first shot at being a leader within the state of Pennsylvania when he was appointed as the State 5th Preceptor. In 2016, he was elected by his brothers to serve as their State Junior Councilor, then as their Deputy State Master Councilor in 2017, and finally as their State Master Councilor from 2018-2019. He has earned his Representative DeMolay Award, Blue Honor Key, and Lamp of Knowledge. He has received the Degree of Chevalier. Tyler is a Master Mason of Steelton-Swatara Lodge #775, a member of the Valley of Harrisburg Scottish Rite, and Zembo Shriners.

Tyler is a Harrisburg native and graduated from Central Dauphin East Senior High School in 2019. He currently attends the Smeal College of Business at The Pennsylvania State University where he is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Management Information Systems.

In Pennsylvania, his theme, “A Brotherhood Awakens,” was centered around awakening the brotherhood of DeMolay in every member. He looks forward to continuing in that mission this year while also helping to “Carry the Flame” of DeMolay forward.

Jared S. Replogle

International Congress Secretary

Jared Scott Replogle of Arizona was installed as International Congress Secretary of the International DeMolay Congress on June 29, 2019 at the 99th Annual Session in Kansas City, MO.

Jared’s DeMolay journey began in October of 2012 when he was inducted into Glendale Chapter. His joined with the encouragement of his friends Nicholas Peterson and Chase Gordon, a future International Master Councilor. Jared made many close bonds in his chapter who mentored and inspired him to become a better friend and leader. He served as chapter scribe for a year-long term before moving into the councilor line, during which time he completed his LCCs and earned his Representative DeMolay. He also had the opportunity to attend Pacific Coast DLC which helped shape his leadership style and grew his passion for DeMolay. In 2016, he was elected Master Councilor of Glendale Chapter.

Following his term, Jared was appointed State Junior Councilor of the Arizona DeMolay State Association. As he traveled across Arizona and befriended young men with very different life experiences, he began to realize how DeMolay has the power to connect young men from many different backgrounds. He was especially moved by the young men of Cochise Chapter, who he found so much in common with despite coming from two very different towns. In 2017, Jared was installed as State Master Councilor. Inspired by the close ties he observed the previous year, he created the Banner Program as a way to strengthen the bonds across the state by increasing chapter visitations. He also developed a strong membership plan that placed Arizona DeMolay #3 in new members for the year of 2017. Jared ran for International Congress Secretary in 2018. Although he was unsuccessful, he still wanted to be involved in Congress programs. He was appointed as chairman of the RUSH Committee and had supporting roles in the App, Squire/Knighthood and Path Forward Committees. After his term as State Master Councilor, Jared was appointed by his Executive Officer to serve as the representative for the Arizona Squires Program.

Jared graduated from Mountain Ridge High School in 2017. Currently, Jared is attending college at Paradise Valley Community in Phoenix. He plans to transfer to Arizona State University to pursue a degree in data analytics. Soon after being elected ICS, Jared was presented with the Distinguished Service Award at his state’s convention, which was given to him by Dawson Zoucha, the same person who he presented it to one year prior
