NextGen Pastor

Tim Ford

Tim Ford

worked in student ministry as a leader for over 14 years at Covenant United Methodist Church, located in Greenville, NC. He studied graphic design at East Carolina University and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Arts/Graphic Design in 1997. He worked for 15 years in Advertising as an art director and won many art awards. He taught at the local community college as an illustration teacher and was Creative Director in the student ministry at Covenant Church for the 6 years.

Since 1998, Tim worked as a leader at Covenant Student Ministries. Over his time in student ministry, the Holy Spirit has equipped him for various roles such as teaching large groups, Sunday school teacher, small group leader, game leader, drama team leader, creative director, stage director, and vision caster. Tim has organized, scheduled, and planned events for students and has been on teams building messages and programs that are relevant in student lives.

He has watched and learned from a handful of youth pastors over the years who have had many styles of leadership. That leadership has set the stage for growth in the Junior and Senior High Ministries at Covenant. Because of his years in student ministry loving on students, he has been able to gain the experience needed for this position. However, even with all of his experience he gives all of the credit to what Jesus has done in him and through him.

Of all these things, Tim would say his marriage to his beautiful bride Shelly and his amazing two Kids Michael (25) and Amanda (18) were truly a gift and blessing from God. His favorite restaurant is Mongolian style barbecue. His favorite national chain is Chick-fil-a. And, his favorite junk food is ice cream, and Twizzlers. We are so pleased to have Tim on staff at First United Methodist, Durant and Caddo Campuses.
