He served nearly eight years with the Georgia State Patrol as a State Trooper and a member of the state’s SWAT/Anti-Terrorist Response Team. He surrendered to the Lord's call to ministry at the age of 21. God has used Tim’s experiences, education, and circumstances to lead him to plant a church in the Denver area.

Tim's wife, Sharon,  also grew up in Georgia and accepted Christ at the age of 5. She has served as a nurse in Georgia and Texas. She has overseen a children’s ministry and volunteers, organized women’s ministry events, and taught women's bible studies.
