ABOUT TIM PRICE
Tim has a BA in Organizational Communication from McKendree University and a Masters of Divinity from Asbury Seminary. He and his wife Suzanne have two daughters. Tim has served on staff at Troy UMC since 1997 and several interns have served for a summer, a semester or a year. The internships have ranged from tech and video, to worship ministry to summer team leadership. Troy UMC is an approximately 800 member church with four Sunday worship services each week that average about 500 hundred in attendance combined. Troy UMC is also the home base for Harvest Ministry, which has been in existence since 1996 with a mission to equip young adults for ministry and be a resource to the church. We travel to lead worship, host conferences and provide podcasts, blogs, and music to pastors and ministry leaders.
