Born in West Texas, Tim migrated to Bucks County in 1985. He joined Crossing and met his future wife, Bette Jo, that same year. He has fifteen years experience in the print advertising and advertising agency field, and also served for eight years with World Team, a church planting mission agency. Before accepting the position as Senior Pastor in 2006, Tim served as an Elder at Crossing for seven years.
Tim did undergraduate work at Texas Tech University and received a Masters in Cross Cultural Communications from Dallas Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Bette Jo, live in Newtown and have two sons, Grant and Owen, and one beautiful granddaughter. He’s a proud fan of the Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Dallas Cowboys. Tim’s desire is to see Crossing be a church where everyone considers him- or herself as being “sent” to the people in their everyday lives.
Steve and Heather, and their three kids, moved here from Austin, Texas, in the fall of 2014. Steve studied Religious Education at Dallas Baptist University, and continued on to earn a Masters in Church History.
Before coming to Crossing, Steve served at churches in Austin and Dallas, in discipleship and small group ministry. His desire is to see the church–and families–equipped and encouraged to make an impact right where they are. His free time is split between drinking coffee, reading, writing, and watching the Dallas Stars, Mavericks, or Cowboys.
He sporadically contributes articles to Faithwire.
WORSHIP & YOUTH MINISTRIES DIRECTOR
Jarred grew up in New Jersey, before moving to Pennsylvania to attend Cairn University. He served at churches in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware, where he developed youth ministries, small groups, music ministries, and discipled young people. He graduated with a Bachelors in Youth and Family Ministry, and his Masters in Counseling in May, 2016, and started at Crossing the next month!
Jarred’s desire is to equip families to be the main disciplers of their kids, and to equip students to own their faith by engaging their soul, educating their mind, and helping them exercise obedience to impact the world around them. He and his wife, Grace, have one son, and some of Jarred’s hobbies include playing guitar, exercising, reading, and watching movies.

Bio Coming Soon...
Based on the New Testament model of church leadership, Crossing is led and governed by a Council of Elders that oversees the general direction, spiritual welfare, and fiscal responsibilities of the church. These men are carefully selected according to the apostle Paul’s instruction in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1, and approved by the congregation’s vote. (Acts 14:21-23, 20:17-18, 1 Tim. 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9, Heb. 13:7, 17)
