Pastor Tim is a native New Englander born in Cambridge, Massachusetts who grew up in New Hampshire. He met Andee (a native of Montana) while attending Bible College. They were married in 2001, and Tim enrolled in seminary. Tim graduated in 2005 with a Masters of Biblical Studies and came back to New Hampshire to serve in a pastoral apprentice program.
While in this program, he became heavily burdened for the New Hampshire Seacoast because of its high population and the limited number of Bible-preaching churches. With the help of sister churches and Gospel Fellowship Association, New England Shores Baptist Church was planted in 2010. On July 12, 2010, the Lord blessed the Lewises with the birth of Judson. On November 25, 2014, the Lord blessed the Lewises with their second child, Reagan.
Pastor Tim's burden is to stay committed to preaching the Bible accurately by taking a literal, dispensational approach to the Scriptures. He is committed to expository preaching, the historical fundamentals of the faith, and being a shepherd (pastor) instead of a CEO.
