Tim Drury
Associate Pastor


How did you come to Jesus?
My parents are both Christians, and would talk about God when I was very small. My parents introduced me to Him during some incredible bedtime talks. As a result, I received God's gift of salvation at the age of 7 years old. However, I had a very child-like understanding of salvation, and, at age 14, I finally understood what God's grace was all about. I realized that I had not been living for Christ. Since that June day at camp, I have been walking with Christ as my Lord and Savior.

How/Why did you join FBC Bethalto?
I was practically birthed into this church! I came to FBC when I was two years old with my parents. I grew up in the ministries of this church. While in college, God called me to be a pastor; and, during my time of preparation, FBC licensed and ordained me as a minister. During and after college, I worked on other church staffs; however, in Jan. of 2007, FBC called me to be their interim student pastor. By Dec. 2007, they called me to be their full-time associate pastor of student ministries. I have been here ever since.

What excites you the most about FBC Bethalto?
I'm excited about the potential for new ministries as a result of the fresh spirit our church has had in the last year. Finally, as a dad, I am very excited that we have workers to lovingly care for our children and teach them about Jesus.

What should people know about your role at FBC Bethalto?
I am here to equip students (middle school - high school) to engage their peers and world. I am also here to walk beside parents as they raise and coach their students. In addition, I organize and direct the Upward Sports program. I love to have fun with students.

What brings you joy outside of your work?
I'm an avid photographer and love spending my free time shooting anything from portraits to landscapes. Spending time with my family - my wife (Sarah Jane) and our daughters (Ella & Charlotte). I also enjoy both home improvement projects & hunting.

I hold a B.S. in Religious Education with an emphasis in Youth Ministry from Missouri Baptist University and I am currently working on Master's Degree in Biblical Counseling from Southern Seminary. In addition, I have worked for "Fuge" camps and on other local church staffs.
