About Pastor Tim

Pastor TimPastor Timothy McGarvey is in his 25th year of pastoring at Coopersville Bible Church.

Pastor Tim grew up in Altoona, Pennsylvania, and attended the Altoona Bible Church. It was there that he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He sat under the able ministry of Pastor Henry F. Kulp. Pastor Kulp was a gifted Bible teacher who had a way of imparting the truths of Scripture. He was the first to plant the seeds of viewing the Scriptures from a dispensational point of view.

After spending several years in the business world, he felt the call of the Lord upon his life and returned to Bible college. Shortly after graduation, he began a ministry with a publication and evangelistic ministry. It was during this time that the Coopersville Bible Church lost its longtime pastor to retirement. Pastor Tim was asked to fill the pulpit until a new pastor could be located.

He became that person 25 years ago and has enjoyed every moment of ministry. The church has seen special times and growth and in 2004 moved into its current facility.

Pastor Tim is thankful for how the Lord has blessed him over the years. He is married to his lovely wife, Sharon, and has six children and ten wonderful grandchildren.
