Pastor Tim ShawSenior Pastor
Pastor Tim Shaw comes to Newaygo from Ohio, but before you give him a hard time about it, he is a graduate of a nearby West Michigan high school. He is starting his 13th year of full-time pastoral ministry and is a two-time graduate of Clark Summit University (formerly Baptist Bible College) in Pennsylvania. He and his wife, Mary Beth, have 3 kids under the age of 10 and are living just outside of Newaygo. As a family, they enjoy being outdoors, reading, playing games, and finding new adventures. Pastor Shaw also enjoys hunting, woodworking, and making acoustic guitars. Pastor Shaw is passionate about the Word of God and showing the enduring applicability of Scriptures to life in our current age. He desires to see the church be an ever-transforming group of people who know and live the truth in every part of life. He invites you to come learn about Christ, worship, pray, with us this week. Pastor Shaw is also available for counseling by appointment.
