Pastor - Christ Greenfield
Tim is a third-generation pastor who has 13 years of pastoral experience with a doctorate in Organizational Leadership with an emphasis on missional and collaborative traits of pastoral leaders.

Tim specializes in innovative thinking with a passion for the convergence of vision & execution. He has experience guiding churches, pastors, and leaders towards achieving their fullest potential through several group consultations and one on one Coaching Opportunities. Tim has been married 16 years to his high school sweetheart - he married way up. Jesus gave them three sweet and delightfully (most of the time) different children. When not mentoring others or reading, you can find Tim on the golf course in sunny Arizona!
