Rector (Senior Pastor)
When you ask Tim why he became a minister, his short answer is “What a privilege to get front row seats to watching God at work”!
Tim and his wife Laurie began their time with us at Little Trinity in March of 2013. They are parents to two boys Joshua and Kaleb who teach them richly of God’s love for us. Tim loves working with his hands, and so when he’s not carrying out his responsibilities as pastor you’ll find him in his garage working on a motorcycle or keeping up the repairs on their home. He is an avid fan of the Green Bay Packers, and pursues snowboarding in the winter, and golf and fishing in the summer.
Tim graduated in 2001 from Wycliffe with an MDiv, which followed a BSc in Biochemistry / Chemistry from the University of Western Ontario . Most of his ministry time since graduation was spent working at St. Paul’s Bloor Street in Toronto first as youth pastor, and then as pastor of discipleship.
Tim’s passion is walking with others the road of discipleship, pointing people toward the truths of the gospel which are transformative as the Spirit of God applies them to every aspect of our lives.

Lay Pastoral Associate
While I have always believed that a person’s job is merely the arena in which one works out his or her calling, it is nice when the arena dovetails with the calling. My passion is pastoral care and counselling and I have almost always found opportunities to exercise that passion regardless of occupation. From the early 1980s I have had occasion to take positions of formal pastoral ministry in various communities. I fulfilled a similar role here at Little T between 2000 and 2002 and am humbled and honoured to be able to do so again.
I have a Bachelor of Theology, an honours BA in History and Classics, and an MA from Wycliffe College in Church History and Theology. I have always pursued my studies with the underlying goal of helping me understand the human condition, how we relate to each other and how we relate to our God.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two children, cooking too much good food, and exploring the world around us.

Morgan’s love for Youth Ministry was born out of a passion to see young people fully embrace a life of following Jesus. When they begin to find freedom in their identity in Christ and understand that they can lead for Him even now, what can’t God do with that!
Before joining the Little T team in 2014, Morgan spent seven years directing the Leaders In Training Program at Ontario Pioneer Camp, and many years before that investing in the lives of youth and young adults, both in camp and church settings. She loves the adventure and challenge found in walking with people during such a formative season of life.
She is married to Fred and has two kids, William and Jonathan. When she is not hanging out with the youth, she enjoys going on outdoor adventures, playing games with family and finding new creative outlets.
