My name is Tim Lawrence. I am married to my beautiful wife, Laura. We have been married for 25 years.We have three children, Nathan who serves in the United States Army, and Jonathan and Melissa, who are twins. I received Christ as Lord and Savior on June 7, 1987. I surrendered to full time ministry in 2003. I pastored my first church from 2005 to 2007. I served as youth pastor as well there and as full time youth pastor at Mt. Pleasant Baptist in Bogalusa, La. I currently serve at Louin Baptist Church in Louin, Ms which is about 30 miles north of Laurel and 20 miles south of Newton, Ms. I received my Associate of Applied Science in Drafting and Design Technology from Copiah Lincoln Community College at Wesson, Ms, my Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and am currently pursuing a Master of Divinity degree from the same institution. My philosophy of ministry is to love God and love people. God has called me to be a pastor to his people. I love shepherding his flock and showing those under my care how much I love them. In addition my heart burns for missions and mission work.
