Tim was raised in a Christian home in Guymon, Oklahoma where he was saved at the age of 9. His early years were greatly impacted by many godly men who encouraged him to be an intern both in his high school and college years. It was at the University of Oklahoma where Tim’s spiritual growth matured as he served as a Discipleship/Bible study leader in the men’s dorms for five consecutive years while getting his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry in 1992. Tim went on to get a Master of Environmental Science from the University of Oklahoma in 1994.
Tim always hoped that the Lord would call him into ministry. Until that call came, he served as an Industrial Hygienist for an environmental consulting firm in Shreveport, La. It was at his local church, Springs of Grace Baptist Church under his former pastor Rex Blankenship that Tim’s call to full-time ministry came. Springs of Grace asked Tim to pray about being the youth pastor to which he accepted, sensing the Lord’s leading and the Church’s confirmation of his gifting. Tim served as full-time youth pastor for two years and was ordained in August of 1998.
Tim went to Dallas Seminary and received a Master of Theology in 2002. At the same time, he accepted a call to be the Senior Pastor of Heritage Baptist Church in Waxahachie, Tx, where he served for 11 years. The Lord was faithful in those years growing the Church, saving the lost, and developing Tim’s passion for preaching and a commitment to sound doctrine. Tim went to The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky to develop his skills in expository preaching graduating in December 2011 with his Doctor of Ministry degree.
Tim has been married to his best friend Julie since 1993. The Lord has blessed their family with four incredible children: Hannah, Abram, Callie, and Hudson. Tim and his family moved from Texas to Pennsylvania in July 2012 to be the Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Bible Fellowship Church. Tim is excited and trusting the Lord for His grace to lead Ebenezer Bible to be a place of biblical truth, a place of genuine love and a place where broken sinners can come and experience the love and saving power of Jesus Christ!
