Pastor Tim was born in Bethlehem, PA. In 1985, his family moved out of the UCC and joined Cedar Crest BFC in Allentown, PA. He was born again at the age of five while reading thru the four gospels with his father. The Lord has used the BFC greatly in his life to ground him in the ways of the Lord, teaching him to love, know, and revere our Great Savior, Jesus Christ. It was at Victory Valley Camp where Tim learned a passion for ministry and teaching. While serving there for six years, Tim also met Rachel Davidson. She grew up at the Graterford Bible Fellowship Church. The two dated for five years and married in August 2002.
Tim holds a B.S. in Bible with an emphasis in Pastoral Ministry from Philadelphia Biblical University, now Cairn University. He holds his MDiv in Contemporary Leadership from Biblical Theological Seminary, now Missio Seminary. He recently earned his Doctor of Ministry (2018) from Biblical Theological Seminary, focusing on congregational change. His dissertation is entitled “Creating, Maintaining, and Enhancing Unity among Campuses of a Multisite Church,” He’d love to discuss his thoughts about that or any doctrinal or life topic.
Rachel also holds a BS in Bible and Early Childhood Education from Philadelphia Biblical University, now Cairn University.
Coming to Whitehall
Tim served as pastor for seven years at a sister church in Camden, Delaware. In July 2009, our Whitehall Church called him to be the senior pastor. Tim and Rachel live in Whitehall and are excited to see how the Lord will bless our church as we all minister side by side. These have been an amazing fourteen years, and we look forward to how God will transform the community through our congregation!
The Scriptures teach, “a man may inherit all his wealth from his parents, but a wise and diligent wife is a gift from the Lord,” and that has really been true for Tim; Rachel is his greatest asset, a suitable partner in life and ministry. Tim and Rachel have four kids: Nathaniel, Evelyn, Caroline, and Molly. Tim and Rachel love being parents and raising their teens to love Jesus.
