Pastor Tim Farley began his ministry at FBC in April of 2021 after Pastor Michael Wilhite retired. Pastor Tim graduated from Cleveland State University with a Bachelor of Business Administration. From there he started a career in computer sales. However the pastor and the youth pastor of his church at the time encouraged him to consider pursuing pastoral ministry. After much counsel, thought, and prayer he applied at a couple seminaries to see what God had in store for him. Eventually he chose to pursue this calling and went to Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, where he earned his Master of Divinity. After seminary he served in churches as both Associate and Senior Pastor before coming here to serve as our Senior Pastor. Pastor Tim enjoys playing guitar, reading, blogging, and hunting as well as spending time with his wife Rachel and their five children.
