Tim began as Senior Pastor of The Church On the Hill in July 2002. He resides in Winter Haven with his wife of 41 years, Cindy, and loyal YorkiePoo, Pebbles. He and Cindy have three children and 10 grandchildren.
Tim graduated with Special Distinction (3.8 GPA) from the Baptist College of Florida (formerly Baptist Bible Institute) in 1983 with a Bachelor of Ministry Degree in Biblical Studies.
Tim preached his first sermon in Davenport, Florida at the age of 18, and God called him to preach on April 22, 1979 at the age of 21. He was called as the pastor of his first church shortly thereafter in Colquitt, Georgia in 1980.
Over the years he has attended conferences and seminars led by notable men such as John McArthur, John Piper, R.C. Sproul, John Maxwell, Alistair Begg, and Adrian Rogers. His favorite authors include several of the aforementioned names, as well as Charles Spurgeon, J.C. Ryle, and select Puritan writers.
His greatest strengths and spiritual gifts are preaching and leadership. He has an insatiable appetite for the Word of God and does not waiver from its truth. He has a personality like no other, knowing when to take life seriously but also recognizing that laughter is the best medicine.
In his spare time, Tim loves to spend time with his family, hit the gym, play basketball, go bass fishing, and detail his vehicles. Tim is also a die-hard fan of the University of Alabama, Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
