OUR Team

As a team of leaders we are here to connect with you, care for you, and help you develop your relationship with Jesus Christ. That means being available to listen to, talk with, pray for, and worship beside you. It means guiding those who seek truth and transformation to the One who freely gives those things. And it means being present to meet the spiritual needs of people wherever they are—whether in church, homes, hospital beds, the garden, office buildings, coffee houses, or on the streets.

    Senior Pastor

    "It is an incredible privilege and honor to lead this great community and share the hope I have found in Christ."


    Personal Mission Statement:

    To inspire others to see their God-given potential and to instruct them according to God’s word on how to reach that potential. To try each day to lead in a way that attracts others to Jesus.


    Tim's greatest place of leadership is his home where he has a wonderful wife and four fabulous children. His journey of faith began early, but his calling to the ministry did not come until he was preparing for the business world in college. At that time God called Tim to lead His church.


    Church isn't just about what happens inside the walls, but can function at its best outside the walls. It's difficult getting someone new to come to church, but when we as the church meet them where they are, it's a much more natural transition.
