Tim is the Senior Pastor of Southside Baptist Church. He has been married to Sarah for sixteen years, and they have four children: Eliza, Naomi, Jude and Nate. 

Tim began following Jesus as a teenager through the ministry of Young Life. He has worked as a youth pastor, a schoolteacher and a church planter/pastor in Houston, Texas. Tim earned a bachelors degree from Houston Baptist University in 2004 and a Master of Divinity degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2009. He has taught as an instructor with World Hope Bible Institute since 2016, training pastors and ministry leaders in Nepal, Ecuador and now in London as well.

After helping to plant a church in Houston, Texas and pastoring there for nine years, Tim and his family were sent out from there to serve with Southside Baptist Chrurch in Thornton Heath, and in 2019, Tim was appointed Senior Pastor. Tim desires to see the church in London thrive and flourish, preaching the gospel, making disciples, training leaders, developing healthy relationships and reaching the city and the nations with the hope of the gospel.


Tim loves to read science fiction and fantasy novels (in other words, he's a big nerd!) He also enjoys playing board games, card games and video games with family and friends.
