He was born August 29, 1946, in Tulsa, to Leo Redford and Edna Mae (Mott) Adams. His father served as a minister, and at an early age Wyatt accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He completed much of his secondary education attending school in Oklahoma City area before moving to Bristow, and graduating with the Bristow High School class of 1964. While in high school, Wyatt was an accomplished vocalist and was active in men's choir. He won a superior rating while competing in state solo competition. He continued his education as a vocal music major attending Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, and later St. Paul Bible College in St. Paul, Minn.
