Executive Pastor, Oak Ridge
Since joining the staff in 2006 as the Assimilation Pastor, Tim has held various pastoral positions at Oak Ridge.
Over the last decade, Tim's primary roles have been the Executive Pastor and the Small Groups pastor. Before transitioning solely into the Executive Pastor role last spring, he and the team saw the weekend connection rate in Small Groups grow from 50% to a peak of 93%.
Small Groups & Venue Pastor
Shane came to Christ due to his Small Group and years later became a Small Group leader.
In addition to his Small Group leadership, Shane voluntarily served as a venue pastor for several years. Therefore, when the Small Groups position was open in 2022, it only made sense for him to fill it because of his testimony and the pastoral heart he would bring to the position.
