Rev. Paula Timm


More About Our Pastor

Leadership Style
I would describe my leadership style as a mix between democratic and delegation. I value the process of all voices being heard. When making decisions I like to work with a team to decide on the best course of action with the information we have available. I also delegate real responsibility to others so we can build a confident future for the church.

Spiritual Disciplines and Study
Daily prayer, daily gratitude reflection and occasional journaling, scripture and devotional time, generosity/giving and fellowship with God’s people.

Call to Ministry
My faith was largely formed by my local United Methodist Church, my parents, and my involvement in camp and retreat ministries. Through these experiences, I learned that God is with me even when I don’t think that I need God. In college, after my mother was seriously ill, is when I felt God nudging me into ministry.  I felt most connected to God at summer camp, so I wanted to explore cultivating that relationship with others. I wanted to work where I could love God and love God’s people. As a lifelong learner, I am looking to deepen my understanding of God with every experience. What I have learned is that God’s call never changes, but how we each live out the call changes. I left full time church work in 2019 to pursue teaching Language Arts in public school. My full-time ministry context has changed, but my heart is still deeply passionate about cultivating lifelong relationships with Christ.

Gifts for the Ministry
Teaching and preaching are areas where I am gifted. I enjoy both the process of preparing to teach/preach and the act of sharing God’s word with people. Other gifts are encouragement, especially as it relates to creating and maintaining groups in ministry areas of the church as well as listening. I enjoy hearing the stories of God’s work in our lives and helping people explore ways to live their best life to fulfill God’s call.
