  • TIM NELSON

    SENIOR PASTOR

    Tim@high-pointe.org

    Tim attended Eastern Nazarene University in Boston and it was there that he met his wife Mary, who was from Michigan.  Tim and Mary have four great kids.

    Tim loves scripture and enjoys relearning what it means to be a child of God living in a world that is increasingly hostile to the Church.
