Many congratulations to Pastor Tim and his wife Lyndol after a long and storied career in full time ministry. I had the privilege of being called by their daughter Kim, a talented photographer in her own right, to photograph their festivities. As you can see, Kim and the rest of the church threw them quite the bash! Desert Son Community Church started in the humbled beginnings of an elementary school, like many others. In time it grew to not only its own campus but also planting new churches as well. All this in addition to supporting other great community service programs such as More Than A Bed, Angel Tree, and full time missionaries across the globe. One need only look at the size of the crowd in attendance to see the many lives they have touched over the years.
In Pastor Tim, we gain an appreciation for how busy and hard working a ministers job can be. In addition to preparing sermons for weekend worship, they are officiating everything from weddings to funerals, as well as overseeing church administration. I wish them the best as they set out their life on a new adventure on the East Coast to spend time enjoying retirement, participate in new activities and hobbies, and watching their beautiful grand kids grow.
