Senior Pastor

tim@faithcommunity.com

Tim was born in Central Kansas. His family moved to Kansas City in 1979 when his father was called into the ministry. Growing up as a pastor’s son provided him with a unique perspective of the pastoral ministry. He is profoundly grateful for the model that his father has been to him, and relishes the involvement that he continues to have in his ministry. Tim and his wife, Lori, have been married for 27 years and have four sons and one precious granddaughter. Tim received his undergraduate from Liberty University, an M-Div from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and a D-Min in Expository Preaching from The Master’s Seminary. He has also pursued post-graduate work at Wales Evangelical School of Theology. Tim has pastored Faith Community Church since its inception in 1995. In addition, Tim also serves as President of Faith Christian Academy, a Classical Christian school in Kansas City.
