Assistant Church Pastors
and Ali Timms
are the Assistant Pastors of the House of Destiny Church and have been supporting Senior Pastors Keith and Jo since 2003.
Married in 1987 and living in Bromley, Kent until 1996 when they felt impressed by God to leave the UK in order to be trained at Word of Life Bible School in Uppsala, Sweden for a year. From there God spoke to them to move to Exeter where they helped start a church and served as Assistant Pastors until January 1999 when Andy had to return to the Metropolitan Police in London.
After re-locating to Bournemouth, they attended Christian Outreach Centre for the first time in April 2003 and had, what they believed to be, a divine appointment with Keith and Jo and Ashley Schmierer, the International President of COC. The same heart for revival and a passion to see a strong, vibrant and effective church instantly connected the two couples, and the rest, as they say, is history!
Andy, still a serving Police Officer, runs the weekly Bible School
and ensures everything else runs efficiently within the church while Ali is the Worship Pastor. She has also been 'instrumental' in setting up the Christian Homeschool Co-operative which is currently based at the church.
They are committed to seeing people healed and restored in body, soul and spirit, and to that end, are training to be fully qualified ministers with the Restoring the Foundations ministry. They are also the proud parents of two great teenagers - Robyn and Ross - both loving God and serving wholeheartedly in the worship and creative arts ministries of the church.
