He comes to our diocese from the Diocese of West Texas, where he served St. Luke’s, San Antonio as a curate since June 2013. He is an alumnus of the School of Theology in Sewanee, Tennessee.

Tim and his wife, Holly, have five children, ranging in age from kindergarten to college. They also have a Labrador retriever named Arwen (their elfin princess).
