About Tim
  • Education: Graduate with degree in Pastoral Ministries.
  • Experience: I’ve been preaching off and on for about eight years. God’s call on my life though was still unclear until just a short while ago.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I pray that you find something here. I’m not an educated minister. I most often speak from the message God is laying on my heart, through my personal Bible studies, through music, through life in general. I honestly feel that if God is giving me a message to speak someone else needs to hear it too.
  • Family: I’m married with two children living at home. My wife and I are excited about my entering the ministry, as we know this is where God is calling us.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My parents seem to enjoy my preaching. Now that they’ve both heard me. They’re very encouraging.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My wife is super encouraging. Long before I really felt God’s call she was already telling me this was what God wanted. Even when I think the sermon was terrible she says otherwise.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: If you fill God is calling you to preach a sermon, even if the consequences may seem severe, then you need to preach that sermon.
  • Books that have had an impact: If You Want to Walk on Water Get Out of the Boat, Nehemiah, 2nd Timothy
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: There’s more to life than living and dying. God has prepared a place just for us, each and every one. When I die don’t mourn. I’m going home and I can’t wait to see them there.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I had worked for a couple of weeks on my first sermon. I’d timed it out to about 30 minutes. As I stood in front of the congregation I noticed three people sleeping as I spoke. I wasn’t even sure what time it was. So I cut the sermon short but still made the points I had outlined. A few days later I was speaking with a church member about my 10 minute sermon and I explain the shaking I’d received of seeing people asleep. She told me not to worry about it and said, "We’re just glad they’re
  • What I want on my tombstone: He gave all for God and family. Gone home.
