Tim's Life Verse: For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21

Tim was born in Riverside, California and moved to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho in 1968. After Graduation from Coeur d'Alene High School in the late 70’s, he moved back to California where he met and married Cindy.  In 1984 he became a Pastor in Loma Linda, California. Tim and Cindy also ran a coffee house called the “Supreme Bean Coffee House” for years and served the streets of San Bernardino. It was there they became interested in street ministry and the people that are typically ignored; those who have problems with drugs, alcohol, and perversion.

In 1985 they began taking people into their home to help them. That has since grown into their Mentor Home Ministry and Good Samaritan Rehabilitation. The street ministry days, from San Bernardino to L.A., taught Tim more about drugs and alcohol than all the education he ever had. Since that time he received his degree in counseling. To Tim however, the degree is much less meaningful than actually leading an addict to Jesus.

Now his life consists of Victim Offender Mediation, Family Mediation, Drug and Alcohol Counseling, Critical counseling, Idaho Character Council, executive member of the Community Christian Coalition, and Director of Good Samaritan Rehabilitation drug and alcohol residential facilities. In addition he is the Senior Pastor of The Altar Church in Coeur D’Alene which he and Cindy began 18+ years ago in the Silver Valley.

Tim and Cindy have been blessed with four children, and over three hundred people have lived as a part of their family in their home.

  "My love is my family and my Lord."

  "My passion is to worship."

  "My desire is to show the joy of the Lord to others in all that I do."

  "Changing our community one soul at a time."
