Tim Blake

After a nationwide search, we believe God has led us to invite Tim Blake to come to the Grove as our Next Generation Pastor. He loves Jesus. He loves his family. He loves young people and is passionate about doing whatever it takes to reach them with the gospel of Jesus Christ, help them to own their faith and pass it along to others for generations to come. Tim actually lives right here in Independence and has served for 9 years at First Baptist Church in Cold Spring, KY. He has a broad skill set ranging from music and media to preaching, teaching, and leading. Mark your calendars for the weekend of November 21-23, 2014 as we meet and vote on Tim Blake to be our NGP! Here's what this weekend looks like...
