New Leadership Development Director
Pastor Tim Strickland
Together with the Regional Staff and Board, I'm excited to announce Tim Strickland as FEB Central's new Leadership Development Director.
Tim was born and raised in Toronto and trusted in the Lord at a young age through the witness of his parents. He grew up attending The Peoples Church and Academy where he felt the call of God to ministry as a teenager.
Prior to becoming a pastor, Tim completed an electrical engineering degree at the University of Waterloo and worked as a Senior Systems Analyst at the Bank of Montreal. He began his transition to ministry as Business Manager and Director of Young Leaders in Business with Christian Business Ministries Canada.
Tim completed his Master of Divinity degree in Pastoral Ministry at Tyndale Seminary and served on staff at Peoples, where he was ordained to ministry. He then served as a church planter in Markham, before moving west to serve as Senior Pastor at the Prairie Tabernacle in Three Hills, Alberta. While pastoring in Alberta he served as the Canadian board chair for ACTION International Ministries, and as an Adjunct Instructor at Prairie College.
For the past six years, Tim has served as the Lead Pastor at Waverley Road Baptist Church in Toronto, a city church that is experiencing revitalization. He also has been serving as the Moderator for FEB Toronto. He recently completed his Doctor of Ministry degree at Denver Seminary, where he wrote his doctoral thesis, Leadership in Church Revitalization.
Tim is happily married to Carol, and they have three children: Jacob (16), Jessica (13) and Chloe (11). He is an avid disc golfer and competed in the Ontario provincial championships in 2017.
Join me in welcoming Tim and in praying for him and his family as he moves into this role commencing May 1, 2018.
