TSCC Pastors

Lead Pastor, Jim Valentine (far left)

Jim has been the Lead Pastor at TSCC since January 1, 2016.  He and his wife have 3 children.  He is not a "traditional" minister, having been in federal and state law enforcement for much of his working career.  He brings this experience, coupled with his calling and equipping, to encourage and equip others in carrying out the Great Commission here in our community.  Prior to coming to TSCC, Jim was the Discipleship/Groups/Adult Education Pastor at Mt. Pleasant Christian Church in Bedford.  The fire in his spirit is to see men and women become disciples of Jesus, not just church-goers (do-ers, and not just hear-ers), and his preaching reflects that fire.  Jim is a Lawrence County native, graduated from Bedford North Lawrence High School, has a BS in Mathematics from Indiana University, is a graduate of the Federal Law Enforcement Academy, the Indiana State Police Recruit Academy, and holds a Masters degree in Biblical Studies from Masters International University in Evansville, Indiana.  He's lived in Bedford, Mitchell, Plainfield, and Versailles, Indiana, as well as Miami, Florida, and Glynco, Georgia.  All that to say, he's been around a bit.

Ken came on staff in July, 2012.  He and his wife and son live in Bedford.  Ken is a graduate of Johnson University and has a degree in Preaching.  His passion is to equip young people when they move on from their student years to hold onto their faith.  Ken has a heart for the disadvantaged kids in our community, and engages them on many different levels, working through his vast knowledge of pop culture, video games, and Starbuck's (he knows  a lot of stuff about a lot of stuff!).  He brings a unique perspective to student ministry as a former manager at Taco Bell, a retail associate at GameStop, and former youth minister at Flat Rock Christian Church.  He has also had internships working with mentally handicapped individuals and the terminally ill.
