TIM PARSONS

Lead Pastor

Tim took a “non-traditional” path to become a pastor, to say the least. Growing up as a Pastor’s kid in Muncie, IN, he spent all of his childhood in church. His goal going into college was to be a high school English and French teacher. He attended college for 2 years before deciding that being a teacher wasn’t the job for him. Then, he went into the business world. Holding a business degree and being only 2 classes shy of an MBA, Tim found himself working in various industries including hospitality, production, retail, and higher education.
 
Then God spoke and his life would never be the same. Sitting in church one Sunday, Tim had a life-changing experience with Jesus and it redirected the path of his life. Knowing that he was called at that point into full-time, pastoral ministry, Tim enrolled in seminary and completed his Masters degree and was hired as Student Ministries Pastor. After spending time in youth ministry, he transitioned to the role of Executive Pastor at a church in Lafayette, IN.
 
Then, in February 2017, Tim was elected to be the next Lead Pastor at The Journey Church in Avon, IN. Now he and his wife, Consuela and their four children – Samuel, Victoria, Charlie, and Joel – are deeply involved in the life of the church and the community that surrounds them.
 
Tim strives to preach messages every Sunday that are Biblically-based and relevant to life – with practical application each week. He is a teacher at heart and that comes through in his laid-back communication style.
 
Tim believes and embodies the mission of The Journey Church to lead people on the journey from where they are to where God wants them to be. He would love to meet you – so be sure to say “Hi” when you stop in for a visit!
