Our Evangelist

Our Evangelist

Our evangelist is Tim Smelser.  Tim began working with the church at Powers Ferry Road in January 2011 on a limited basis until moving here permanently in the summer of 2011.

Tim began preaching in 1987 with an internship period at Thayer Street in Akron, OH.  He then moved to Aurora, IL to work with the Westside congregation 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 at South Boone.

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

“I simply enjoy talking to others about the Bible; whether that involves one on one discussion, teaching personal or home Bible studies, or teaching classes to large or small 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.”
