Our Evangelist

Our Evangelist

Our evangelist is Tim Smelser.  Tim and his wife Wyndy began working with the church at Powers Ferry Road in January 2011 on a limited basis until they relocated permanently in the summer of 2011.

Tim began preaching in 1987 with an internship period in Akron, OH.  He moved later to a church in Aurora, IL  for four years and then preached for nine years in Clearwater, FL.  Before coming to Powers Ferry, Tim was a minister of Christ in the Indianapolis area for 9 ½ years, working with the Traders Point congregation and then the church in South Boone.

Tim and Wyndy have been married since 1988 and have two sons, David and Joshua.   Both David and Joshua are active Christians and have proven themselves to be leaders and good examples to their peers.

Tim shares his thoughts on various aspects of the role of the evangelist:

“I enjoy teaching one on one; I enjoy teaching personal or home Bible studies; and I enjoy teaching large classes or to large audiences.  I don’t pretend to know everything (and I am afraid of the man who thinks he does), but I get excited about studying God’s word and finding thoughts, connections, or applications that I had not seen before.  Sharing that with others and watching them marvel at the wonders of God’s word is my passion.”
