Pastor Tim and Sara began serving in the local church as children and then felt the call of God to serve Him in pastoral ministry. They were married in December of 1995 and began full-time youth ministry.
Over the last 25 years, they have served as pastors in Children's, Youth and College ministries, as Associate Pastors, Interim Senior Pastors, Church Planners and most recently, as Church Planting Missionaries in the Philippines, where they planted several churches in Manilla, specifically Eastwood City working and Ortigas with the young professionals throughout the metropolitan city.
Both Pastor Tim and Sara are native Californians, but Sara also had the privilege to be raised in a Pastor's/Missionary's home. She spent her high school years in South Africa, while Pastor Tim grew up in South Sacramento. It was in 1991 that Sara's father became the pastor of the local church where Pastor Tim was attending. They began a relationship and the rest, as they say, is history! Pastor Tim says, "There is a God and He loves me!" because He sent Sara all the way from Africa ... just for him!
Together they have three almost-grown children that serve in Ministry with them. Messina, Masella and Isaac have all served Jesus locally and abroad, as well as in some unique and remarkable ways and places. All because his children believe, "Here I am, Lord, use me."
