Pastoral Leadership

Pastor Tim serves as the Lead and Preaching Pastor for the Hydrant Church. Tim was born in Goldsboro, NC and grew up in Raleigh, NC. For Tim, his first ministry is to his family. He enjoys spending time with his beautiful bride, Anita, regardless of whether its sipping coffee, watching movies, cooking, or enjoying a rainy day. He is not a fisherman, but loves to fish especially with his children Noah and Sophia.

PT is the founding leader of the Hydrant Church and loves his life and calling to eastern North Carolina. The Church is really a culmination of what God has been creating in his heart through many different experiences and opportunities. Hydrant is a people who are accepting of you, but always challenging you to grow and walk more closely in the footsteps of Jesus. Pastor Tim’s heart in preaching, mentoring, teaching, or leading is to help others find peace and joy in a relationship with Jesus that enables them to become all they were created to be. He is convinced that most of us can’t even imagine what God would do in us and through us if we would just abandon ourselves to him.

She and Tim were married in 2004, while she was studying for vocational ministry. God has led her on an unexpected journey of life as a Mom.That journey has led Anita into ministries where God has used her in large and small churches to develop children’s ministry, worship ministry, and small groups along with the development of mentoring relationships. Noah, Tim and Anita’s oldest, is nine years old and a reflective deep thinker with a creative side and a happy spirit. Sophia is seven and loves to dance, sing, create to express her love and joy; she often lets her silly side take over.
