I was born and raised in Georgia, at 19 married my sweetheart, Melissa, in 1990, was called to ministry in 1999, and ordained & licensed to the Gospel Ministry in 2001. God called us to our first church in TN in 2001. He would use us to bring healing to splintered churches, lead multiple domestic and international mission trips, help refocus ministries to be effective within their community and ultimately see lives changed for eternity. My ultimate desire is to help the church to refocus and find and meet needs appropriately within God’s Kingdom work.
I am also very passionate about discipleship and missions. God’s calling on my life has provided me opportunity to be very involved and successful in shepherding His church with this emphasis. I am conservative in my theology and graduated at the end of 2019 from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary with a masters in Christian Studies. My ministry experience began in 2001 and I am extremely passionate about missions.
Melissa and I just celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. We have three married children; Travis and Calen Beasley who live in Flowery Branch with granddaughters Harlynn and Hensley; Ashley and Austin Newman who live in Winder with Benjamin; and Tanner and Gracie Beasley who live in Knoxville, TN as they are students at UT. I am an avid sportsman, and love college football.
After 19 years in TN, we felt led to put our house up for sale and move to GA to be closer to the kids and grandkids. Within six weeks, we closed on our house in TN and our new home in Hoschton AND God has opened the door to serve at The Church on the Hill!

Tim has served churches in Music and Communications in FL, KY and GA and has been with The Church on the Hill since 2014. He loves to sing, write, watch KY Wildcats and spend time with his wife since 1987, Alice, and their two adult children Sarah, and her husband William, and Chris and his wife Jordan.
Tim was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1987 and as the disease has progressed he can no longer walk but with today's technology he can still minister through the use of a power wheelchair and an adaptive van...only through God's grace! His life verse is 2 Corinthians 12:9-10.
"Each time he said, 'My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.' So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
