Pastor Tim Davis & Family
As young man of seven years of age, the Lord drew Tim Davis to Himself and worked in Tim’s heart to show him he was a sinner in need of the Savior. Tim’s father led him to the Lord one morning after breakfast. The custom for their family was to read the Word of God every morning as a family. Tim states, “I still remember confessing my sins to God and asking Christ to be my personal Savior and Lord.” One year later, Tim was obedient to the Lord in baptism by immersion.
When Tim graduated from high school, he considered what vocation the Lord would have him make as his life’s pursuit. After considering his God-given talents, abilities, and with the office of a pastor as his desire (1 Tim 3:1), he believed that the Lord was calling him to pursue full-time vocational ministry as a pastor. After counseling with his parents and pastors, he was encouraged to pursue this endeavor.
After graduating from Emmanuel Baptist Christian High School in 1988, Tim entered Bob Jones University. While at Bob Jones University, Tim pursued a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Pastoral Studies with a Minor in Music.
Tim continued his education by completing his Master of Divinity in 2003 at Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary. Pastor Tim completed his Master of Theology in 2006.
In August of 1995, Tim and his wife moved to Michigan and began to work at First Baptist Church of Clarkston. Tim served as the youth and music pastor while his wife assisted him faithfully.
In January 1999, God led Tim to a ministry position at Tri-Lakes Baptist Church in Brighton. As an associate pastor, Tim assisted Pastor Art Larson in overseeing the youth and music ministries.
In January 2005, Pastor Davis started serving the Lord as the Senior pastor of Grace Baptist Church of Waterford.
Tim married his wife Debbie on December 21, 1991. Debbie is a wonderful complement to Tim. God has given her many talents and she willingly uses them for His glory. She plays the piano and participates in the various music ministries of their church. Debbie has directed the children’s choir and has provided leadership for the teen girls.
Debbie’s parents started attending First Baptist Church of Clarkston during her toddler years. Debbie accepted Christ as her Savior when she was five years old after realizing her need of salvation during a daily Vacation Bible School at the home of a church member. Pastor Clarence Bell baptized Debbie shortly there after as a testimony of her faith in Christ.
At the age of 12 her family moved to Blissfield, Michigan where her father, Art Larson, became the pastor at Blissfield Baptist Church. Since junior high, Debbie has had the desire to be involved in some form of ministry, especially teaching music. Debbie also states, “I am willing to be used in whatever capacity the Lord leads.”
Debbie graduated from Emmanuel Baptist Christian High School in 1988, and completed a Bachelor of Music Education from Bob Jones University in 1993
Tim and Debbie have been blessed of the Lord with four children; Samuel, Olivia, Seth, and Blake.
