Father Tim is the second rector of St. Andrew’s Church, beginning his ministry in the fall of 2012. He brings to the parish a focus on welcoming guests, formation as Jesus’ disciples, defining the church’s mission for a new day, and forging interfaith relationships in one of the most diverse counties in the country. Tim also serves as Dean to Region 7 in our diocese, representing Bishop Johnston to clergy and churches for the bishop’s (or diocesan) needs and priorities.
Tim is responsible for the overall direction and vision of the parish, working closely with the Vestry (lay leaders) in recruiting and integrating parishioners for ministry, ensuring proper stewardship of the church’s resources within the parish and for mission beyond the church’s walls, preaching, and leading the congregation in worship. Tim has been a community organizer and speaker on behalf of interfaith relationships.
Tim provides oversight to the following boards and/or committees of the church: finance, endowment, preschool, and Friends of Music & the Arts at St. Andrew’s (FoMA) – a series which integrates both secular and sacred music in its concert schedule.
Tim served in executive management positions for hospice programs across the country prior to ordained ministry – in Mississippi, the Southside of Chicago, western Colorado, and the metro New Orleans area following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. In one particular hospice, he oversaw the construction of the largest free-standing residential hospice in the United States.
Tim, a native of Jackson, Mississippi, completed his bachelor’s study at Mississippi College and received his Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1994.
