• Dr. Timothy Oswald


    Reverend Dr. Timothy Oswald was installed as Pastor on November 13, 2016. He grew up in Addison, IL and graduated from Wheaton College in 1984 with a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical and Religious Studies. He also holds a Master’s degree in Divinity, Master of Military Studies, Master of Theology in Systematic Theology and a Doctor of Ministry degree in Military Ministries. His area of special interest in his studies arose from his work as a Navy Chaplain and examined Christian ministry in religiously pluralistic settings. Pastor Oswald retired as a Captain in the U.S. Navy Chaplain Corps after 22 years. 


    Pastor and his wife of 30 years, Dawn, have four grown children. His passion is to present God’s Word in preaching and teaching, always with a view toward how each segment of text contributes to the larger message of the Bible as a whole which is God’s work to reconcile people to Himself through His Son Jesus Christ.
