Timothy Morrow

Tim was born in North Carolina, which he endearingly calls, “the motherland”. Being the son of a pastor, he lived in several locations as a kid, mostly in North Carolina. He graduated high school there in 1989, the same year he moved out to Wyoming. His wife Jill is a Montana native, born and raised in Billings, where she graduated from West High in 1990. They have 3 daughters and one son-in-law, Sierra and her husband Colin, Madison, & Sophe. 
Tim graduated from Northwest College (Powell), University of Wyoming, and Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC. He loves spending time with his wife & three girls. His favorite pastimes are being in the Wyoming outdoors, fly-fishing, and hunting, as well as backpacking in the Bighorn & Beartooth Mountains. 
Tim is passionate to see Jesus exalted in this church and in our community. His desire is that we all become the “light and salt” to the world that Jesus has called us to be. He is determined, by God’s grace, to see that Christ and the gospel remains the centerpiece of New Life Church.
