In the past, Tim Nicholls was ordained and called by Jerusalem Church to shepherd and teach the saints. As an ordained pastor, Tim exercises his ordination and call primarily through full-time teaching at Lancaster Bible College. Pastor Tim also serves a unique pastoral role at Jerusalem Church, though not formally as a salaried pastor. Under the direction of the Leading Elders, Pastor Tim serves the saints in various roles: teaching, shepherding, discipleship, leadership development, and adviser to the Leading Elders. We as Jerusalem Church give Pastor Tim the honor and respect due his calling.
