Tim NeSmith

Childrens  Pastor

I have served as Children's pastor for 8 years here at Farmstead. I have been in ministry for 28 years serving our Lord as deacon, Youth minister, and children's minister. I am a servant of a holy and loving God!
I'm married to my best friend Kelly. We have been married for 38 years. We have two children who are married and have four amazing grandkids!
I love being a children's minister because kids are so awesome to be around and they can always make you smile.
I love M&M's, Disney, and spending time with my family!
