Short Biography of Tim Gray
"Me in a nutshell. I'm a lover of God, a husband, a father, a minister, a musician, a person in recovery, and a therapist."
"I learned a few years ago that Timothy in Greek, "Timotheus," means "honoring God."
"That truly is the desire of my heart, to honor God in all areas of my life."
"I accepted the call into ministry in 1982. Since then, I have served as a pastor, a minister of music, and a minister of youth. Through all these years I was bi-vocational and also working in the mental health and substance abuse fields."
