Tim & Charlene Miskimen
Upon recommendation of the ordination council that questioned Tim Miskimen’s doctrinal stand and beliefs, Maplelawn ordained him in a ceremony on May 20, 2001.
Pastor Green challenged and exhorted Tim from the Bible. He related to him that God holds those with the privilege and responsibility to teach His word to a higher standard than others.
If all goes as planned, Tim and Charlene’s ministry will take them to Singapore where Tim will teach national pastors and leaders. His advanced education with the Grand Rapids Baptist Seminary provided him with a Master of Divinity degree and a Master of Theology degree. These credentials qualify him to him to teach and train pastors in their own region of the world.
Deacon, Dr. Mike Sullivan, brought a challenge to the church to support Tim, his wife and two boys with prayer and encouragement. Echoing those sentiments were other board members, John Campbell, Kim Paavola and former pastor Rev. David Smith.
The Deacon Board and other ordained men gathered around Tim and offered a prayer on his behalf, that he might faithfully serve an almighty God no matter where the Lord leads him.
Tim was raised in a Christian home and when he was five years of age, he repented of his sins and asked Christ to come into his life. At age 13, he surrendered his life to whatever vocation the Lord had for him.
He attended Cedarville College and pursued a pre-seminary degree. In his junior year, he met Charlene who would be his future wife. After an eight month missionary internship with ABWE in South America, Tim returned to marry Charlene.
The Miskimens are currently serving in Chiang Mai, Thailand as Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology. Tim servers under the Asia Baptist Theological Seminary of Cornerstone University.
Tim and Charlene Miskimen originally hail from Ohio – Tim from Canton and Charlene from McDonald. They were married in 1992 and have three children. Click on this link to view a PDF of their brochure or this link for more information about the Asia Baptist Theological Seminary.
