    Senior Pastor

    Tim's passion is to bring glory to God through a church on fire for Jesus Christ! He loves to preach God's word faithfully and passionately, and he thoroughly enjoys being a part of a ministry where the Holy Spirit radically transforms hearts.

    Tim became the Senior Pastor here at Harvest Peoria in Oct, 2008. His role includes ensuring an impact service every Sunday morning, casting the vision for the church, serving as an elder, sharing in congregational care, and helping work with staff in their respective areas.

    Tim came to trust in Christ as a young child and was raised in a strong Christian home. He worked as an electrical engineer for 17 years in the Naperville, IL  area after graduating from Wheaton College and the University of Illinois in 1988.

    In 2002, Tim and Jonna began to sense a call to move toward full time ministry. Tim joined the staff at Harvest Bible Chapel Naperville in 2004 and served in a variety of Adult Ministry roles while completing an MMin degree from Moody Bible Institute. 

    Tim is married to his lovely wife, Jonna, and they have two beautiful children, Megan and Elissa. He loves to hunt and relax by watching the Bear’s play (OK lose, unfortunately).
