Pastor Tim was saved as a young boy at his home in Plainfield, IN and surrendered to pastoral ministry later that year. While attending Bible college, Tim met and married his beautiful wife, Heather, on June 3rd of 2011. In the spring of 2012, while finishing up his master’s degree, Tim and Heather accepted the call to serve at Central Baptist Church in Ponca City, OK as the youth pastor. They served there for the next 10 years, during which time they were blessed with their three wonderful children (Grayson, Gavin, and Felicity).
In April of 2022, Tim accepted the call to pastor Victory Baptist Church here in Nixa, MO. The Russell family have fallen in love with the people of Nixa, MO, and would love any opportunity to help you and your family learn more about our loving Savior, Jesus Christ. They look forward to a long, Christ centered ministry at Victory Baptist Church.
