Our Pastor

Before entering full-time ministry, Pastor Timothy plied his trade as a petroleum engineer in Northern California. But when God called, Timothy answered by happily trading his profession of boiling oil for the joyful labor of loving college students, first at the University of California, Davis, and now here at the U. 

Eventually, with his wife Alice, a former college student advisor, and their two daughters, Pastor Timothy moved to the Twin Cities to start Gracepoint Minneapolis. Today, they can be found opening up their home to hungry students, leading trips to various lakes, and sharing their love of java with all. With compassion and zeal, they are committed to serving God by helping students and post-graduates become disciples of Christ.

Meet the Staff

As graduates from the U, and other universities, we are committed to the vision of building up an Acts 2 church in every college town. As part of the college ministry, we help others study the bible and share some bits of wisdom we’ve learned from our lives as Christians. We know it is hard to follow one’s faith alone, which is why we do life together.
