Personal Information:

Wife: Debora Collins; married 1977
3 Adult Children: Nicolas, CJ, and Rachel

I believe I was called to preach before I was born, when my mother said she heard the audible voice of God telling her to name me Timothy. I preached from the time I could talk, mainly to the elderly lady who lived next door (through the woods) and undoubtedly deserves a special place in Heaven. My dad was a pioneer pastor so I was afforded plenty of opportunities for church work throughout my life. When I was seven years old, a fellow church planter and family friend invited me to preach my first sermon in church at Jernigan (AL) Assembly of God, near my hometown of Phoenix City, Alabama. At the age of nine I preached my first week-long revival in Columbus, Georgia. In the summer following my junior year of high school I traveled with the Sam Anderson Evangelistic Team, primarily as a singer and driver but usually preaching a "youth night"  on Wednesdays. After returning to high school for my senior year, I continued to minister on weekends, for short revival crusades and in weekly nursing home services--wherever a door was opened.
When my Air Force career placed me in Dover, Delaware the leadership of the church I attended invited me to lead their youth group, which I did for over three years. During that time, I also played and sang with a regional Christian band called "Gospelight."  (hey, it was the seventies!) My next duty station was Eglin AFB, Florida. While serving there I preached evangelistic meetings in northwest Florida and south Alabama and completed my studies for ministerial credentials.
In late 1985, the Lord in His wisdom began to give me a burden to pastor, so I left the Air Force to enter the pastorate. My pastoral resume' is printed below. After a nineteen year interlude of pastoral ministry, my wife and I sense the call to evangelistic ministry intensifying as we race toward the end of this age.

My Definition of an Evangelist, and His/Her Role in Revival
As an evangelist, I partner with the local Pastor and church body to enhance their efforts at reaching their community with the Gospel of Christ. Working closely within the vision of local church leadership, I seek to challenge, motivate, and inspire the body to purposely move to the next level of relationship with Christ and to be more effective in ministry. By definition, as an "evangelist" my role includes presenting the challenge of the Gospel to sinners, and I always give careful attention to that. In many situations my ministry to the church body is equally important in that it seeks to draw them into a closer, more scriptural relationship with God. The net effect is more evangelism as the Body becomes a more effective witness and better example of true Christianity, drawing people to Christ as He is glorified in His church.

Other Comments
An integral part of my minstry is singing, primarily Southern or Country Gospel. A complimentary DVD containing both singing and preaching is available to help inform Christian leaders about our ministry. Telephone, email or snail mail for a copy.
