Tim has been attending Christ Community Church since 1980 and is privileged to have served as pastor since 1998. He is a native Tucsonan who loves the Lord and has enjoyed His rich blessings since becoming a believer as a young boy. He is a graduate of Phoenix Seminary. Tim married his high school sweetheart, Kathy Kimmey, in 1984 and together they have two adult children and three grandchildren. His daughter Aubrey and her husband, Eleon, are also members of CCC, while their son, Daniel and his wife, Ashley, live in Chicago, IL.
One of Tim's deepest passions has always been vocal music. In fact his original position at CCC was worship leader which he did faithfully for nine years. He attributes his love of music to his late parents, Jerry & Beckie, who encouraged him to sing from an early age while listening to albums by Englebert Humperdinck, Frank Sinatra, Perry Como and Andy Williams. “We were a very musical family," Tim remembers.
Regardless of his dream to give Humperdinck some competition, Tim turned down a scholarship to study music at Northern Arizona University and instead pursued a career in broadcasting. He was News Director at KAIR/KJYK Radio in the mid 1980's, a retail sales manager, and then a recruiter for ITT Educational Services before responding to the call to ministry and joining the pastoral staff at CCC in 1998.
Currently, Tim is the Executive Pastor of Administration, an elder, and he also oversees the Senior Adult Ministry. He has been accused of excessively enjoying traveling and using his position at CCC to shamelessly travel the world, lead missions trips, and sight-see with his senior adult ministry. Admittedly, that's an accusation for which he has no valid refutation.
His personal interests include ukulele, photography, shooting sports, bicycling, hiking and camping. Tim's favorite sport is ice hockey and he enjoys great Thai food, pizza, and action movies!
