Pastor Timothy was born again and spirit-filled early in his youth. As God continued to mature and develop his ministry, He connected him with spiritual parents who would cover and nurture his giftings. He received training under the leadership of the late Apostle William T. and Apostle Veter Nichols of New Covenant Life Ministries in Port Huron, MI, and Apostle Ellis Smith of Jubilee City Church in Detroit, MI.
Upon receiving his ordination in 2002, he received the call to relocate from Detroit, MI where he had lived all of his life to Los Angeles, CA. Soon after relocating he began to lead Bible Studies and Prayer Meetings both on his job and in his home. Being first and foremost a worshiper, he desired to raise up a company of Davidic worshipers who understood the importance of true intimacy with God. As a result, he began holding services entitled “A Call to Worship”. This eventually led to the formation of City of Praise Christian Church, where he has served as Senior Pastor for 12 years.
City of Praise has become the training ground for world changers, and is noted for its intense Praise and Worship, and its relevance toward those called to infiltrate the entertainment industry. The Church carries the burden of the Lord for urban revitalization and world transformation.
Pastor Timothy flows under a threefold anointing of Pastor, Prophet and Psalmist, and carries a passion for youth and singles. His testimony and stand for purity and holiness drew national attention with articles in both People and Charisma magazines. Obeying the mandate to raise up a standard for future generations, he has been blessed to see many lives miraculously transformed by the anointing God has placed upon his life.
