Meet Tim

Associate Pastor

Student Ministry has played a roll in Tim’s life for over two decades; his passion is to see students get to know and embrace Jesus. “There is nothing like watching teenagers grasp that there is a God who loves them and is calling them to so much more,” he says.

Tim and Jessica, the love of his life, have been married for over 20 years. She has been serving students alongside him for 24 years. They have 2 sons, Ethan and Jacob; and enjoy camping, family game night and involving themselves in church and school activities.

In addition, Tim is a 5th-degree black belt in Kajukenbo, a Hawaiian martial art. He is also fanatical about his favorite college football team, the Alabama Crimson Tide – yes, his office is decked out in Crimson Tide colors! He has watched Nacho Libre so many times that he can almost quote the entire movie. This may come as a surprise, he is afraid of large frogs! And heights…

Tim is also a Teaching Pastor here at Heights Church. He brings energy and truth to his messages that are rooted in God’s word.
