2024 Daily Evangelists & Missions
Pastor Tim has been in ministry for 26 years, of which 18 of those have been spent pastoring Pfrimmer’s Chapel Church in Corydon, Indiana. Early in his ministry, the Holy Spirit asked Pastor Tim and his wife, Pam, if they wanted a “normal” ministry or a “supernatural” one. As they got on their knees and prayed together, they chose at that very moment. . . Supernatural! Since that decision, they have seen the Holy Spirit move in their life and ministry in incredibly anointed ways. Along with serving as the Senior Pastor at Pfrimmer's Chapel, Pastor Tim is also the co-founder and teaching director of The Joshua Center Global Inc., a ministry that exists to provide deep, Biblical roots to Holy Spirit movements. He is completing his first two books, "Church by the Creek: Flowing in the Spirit,” and “The Person and The Power. ”Pastor Tim and Pam have three adult children: a son, Taylor, and daughter in-law, Colleen; and two daughters, Merritt and Olivia. They also have a small pony (otherwise known as a Great Dane) named Meshach.
