Tim and Brenda Moore

Lead PastorTim has been the Lead pastor at Faith Baptist Church in Mason City since January 2017. He was born in Des Moines and grew up in Ankeny, Iowa. While attending junior high in Ankeny, Tim met someone who would become a lifelong friend. This friend faithfully shared the gospel, the Good News of Christ, with Tim many times over the next few years. During the summer of 1982, Tim attended a week of Senior High camp in Ventura, Iowa and again heard the gospel clearly presented. The words of Romans 5:8, “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us,” opened his eyes to his sin and his need of a Savior as well as to God’s unconditional love for him. That week, Tim trusted Christ’s death on the cross as payment for his sin. Tim attended Bible college in Ankeny, Iowa and Seminary in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania. He served as a Youth Pastor for 12 years in Minnesota and Michigan before returning to Iowa to pastor LeClaire Baptist Church in LeClaire, Iowa. Tim and his family lived and ministered in LeClaire for seventeen years before moving to Mason City.
