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 the South Fairfax region in our diocese, representing Bishop Goff to clergy and 13 churches for the bishop’s (or diocesan) needs and priorities.
Tim is responsible for the overall direction and vision of the parish: working in tandem 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, teaching, and leading the liturgy (worship services) for the church. Tim has been a community organizer and speaker on behalf of interfaith relationships throughout the county, creating worship and ministry experiences with both a neighboring synagogue and mosque.
Tim provides oversight to the following boards and/or committees for St. Andrew’s: finance, endowment, preschool, and Friends of Music & the Arts at St. Andrew’s (FoMA) – a concert series which integrates both secular and sacred music.
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.
