Commissioned Ruling Elder (CRE)
Pastor Tim has begun to serve our church as a CRE since early 2016. He is currently enrolled in seminary through a distance education program of the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in Iowa, and is scheduled to graduate in 2018 with a Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree. Before responding to his call to ministry, Tim worked in the Chicago film post-production industry as a digital film assistant and offline editor. His proudest accomplishment during this time is the eight weeks he worked on the PBS documentary “Hoop Dreams.” Tim is a graduate of Columbia College Chicago. He and his wife, Nora, have been married since 1987, and their daughter, Melissa, is studying to become a wildlife biologist at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.
