Introducing Tim Smyth

Associate Pastor

Tim Smyth

I am not sure when my life was transformed by the power of the Gospel. I definitely remember knowing by the first grade that Jesus was my saviour. I knew that He died for me, rose from the dead and offered me eternal life. I had a significant recommitment experience with Christ in my 9th grade year that helped me begin to take my faith in Christ more seriously.

Along with receiving Christ at a young age, I also knew by the time I was in sixth grade that I was called to be in the ministry. I began serving the Lord in “vocational ministry” at the age of twenty three. I have had the honor of serving in several positions. The majority of my time has been working with young adults, youth, and children. Recently, I served for three years as a lead pastor.

In 2017 I accepted a position to work with Tacoma Youth For Christ. I currently am in the role of Church Engagement Coordinator. My job consists of partnering with local churches and ministries to encourage prayer for Christ to bring revival among the next generation.

I also currently serve as the Associate Pastor here at The Ridge, alongside the leadership of Pastor Alec Paul.

My wife Laura and I have been married for 29 years. We have four children, three daughters and one son. My favorite thing in the world (outside of spending time with Jesus) is spending time with my family. I also love the Mariners and the Seahawks. I enjoy the Christmas season (which I believe starts in September) more than the average person.

By His grace, I have a passion for prayer. I believe the Holy Spirit is going to do amazing things for and through The Ridge Bible Church. It is an honor to serve the Lord here and be part of Him bringing glory to Himself through us!

Delighted in Him.
