MEET PASTOR TIM PAYNE
Tim is a passionate communicator who values authenticity. As a teenager, he discovered a calling on his life to amplify the Good News of Jesus to the world.
In 2004, after serving as a Student Pastor for years, God placed a dream in Tim’s heart to start a relevant and accessible kind of church — a church that would attract those who don’t go to a church by removing barriers that often repel them. This would be a community of unity that focuses on intentionally connecting with the unchurched as well as leading followers of Jesus.
Tim holds a high value on spending quality time with God and his family, being physically fit, and compassionately serving others. Tim and Stephanie were married in 1999 and they have three kids: Jaden, Rylie and Gavin. Originally from Tennessee, Tim is a huge Vols fan and loves to play and watch all kinds of sports. You’ll see him around town building relationships within the community on a daily basis. Stephanie leads the Prayer Team and LIFT Women’s movement while supporting Tim in his role as Lead Pastor.
Why Momentum? Tim believes that with momentum we can be a community of Jesus followers who together are an unstoppable force for good driven to change the world. If you’ve been hoping for more, then you’re in the right place! Hope has a name — and His name is Jesus.
