Our Staff


Pastor Tim Knutson

Pastor Knutson was born into a family with a heart for ministry. He was saved In August of 1977 and surrendered to the call to preach in 1987, and in the same year his parents were called into evangelism. While in evangelism he met his wife Dana in 1990 and married her in July of 1992.

Pastor and Dana continued in evangelism with his parents until 2000 when they knew the Lord had begun a work in their hearts about a change of ministry. They moved to attend Heartland Baptist Bible College and joined Southwest Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, OK under the leadership of Bro. Sam Davison. It was just a matter of months until the Lord moved him on to the staff at Heartland, serving in the Dean of Students office for nearly 5 years while attending college.

He graduated in 2004 and in May of 2005 the Lord moved them to Springfield, MO to become the Assistant Pastor at Berean Baptist Church in Springfield, MO under the leadership of Pastor Jeffrey Ables.

He answered the call to Pastor at Jerome Bible Baptist Church in July of 2015.
