Pastor Tim


Pastor Tim Pullin arrived at Lakeview on July 12, 2000 with his wife Karen and son John.


Pastor Tim is a native of Hanover County (Mechanicsville), Virginia attending the (then Richmond First) Church of the Nazarene.  Tim is also a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, having served in South Dakota (1982-83) and England (1984-86), and is a 1991 graduate of Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, TN with a B.A. in Religion/Pastoral Ministry and a Minor in Church Music.  He has served in ministry full-time since January of 1991.  
Tim loves to play, write and sing music (trumpet, keyboard, and guitar), he also loves sports of all types and is interested in science and technology as well as the fine arts.
His previous ministry assignments were at West Point, Virginia (Community Church of the Nazarene) as Senior Pastor for 6.5 years and in Roanoke, Virginia (Garden City Church of the Nazarene) as an Associate Pastor / Minister of Music and Volunteer Youth Pastor for 2.8 years. 
During his ministry in Virginia and North Carolina, Tim has become a veteran of nearly every Board or Committee at the District Level:
  • District Advisory Board
  • Ministerial Credentials Board
  • Ministerial Studies Board, Member, Chair and Secretary
  • NYI Council
  • NMI Council
  • SDMI Council
  • Finance Committee
  • Ministry Area Coordinator
  • Delegate to General NYI, SDMI, and NMI Conventions and General Assemblies, and 
  • Trevecca Nazarene University Trustee
But of all his accomplishments, Pastor Tim is most thankful to have been a part of the start of White Stone, Virginia Church of the Nazarene, the restart of Franklin, NC Church of the Nazarene and to have been present at the calling of at least 6 lay persons to become ministers of the Gospel and numerous individuals converting to Christ.
Pastor Tim feels very strongly the call to make disciples who become disciple-makers in their own right.  And he senses very strongly the need to be a team player at every level possible.
