Pastor Tim is the lead pastor of Mars Hill Portland. He came to Mars Hill in the summer of 1999, having never owned an electric guitar, been in a band, or written a song. Somehow, by God’s grace, he became the worship pastor and has been able to hang on and give shape to a movement of well over 30 worship bands leading many local churches. Tim is the husband of Beth and the father of three daughters. He enjoys good food and whiskey.
