Tim Baines, Sr. Minister Tim was born and raised in a Christian Church in Michigan City, IN. He graduated with a B.A. as a Preaching Ministry Major from Lincoln Christian University in 1984. He attended Lincoln Christian Seminary from 1984-1987. In 1987, he married Cindy who had three children (Mark 7, Meagan 4, and Jillian 3) before being widowed in 1983. In 1989, their fourth child Bethani was born.
Tim graduated from Kentucky Christian University in 1994 with a Master of Ministry degree. He served in Youth Ministries in Joliet, IL (1983-1985) and in Belleville, IL (1985-1988). He then served as youth minister, small groups/adult education minister and preacher understudy in Michigan City, IN (1988-2003). In September of 2003, Tim became the Sr. Minister of Madison Christian Church and has served here ever since.
His wife Cindy is (in his opinion) the prettiest Dental Hygienist in Nashville. She is also a house-flipper! Their four children are married and living in the Nashville area and active in MCC also – which brings great joy to Tim and Cindy. They are currently most likely to talk about their grandchildren (via. Mark and Danielle) – Kai, Lilly, Clive, Titus, and Sage (and three more grandchildren on the way!).
Tim’s hobbies include: golfing, reading with coffee or diet Coke, jogging (very slowly), watching football and golf, and spending time with his Cindy and their children…he adores his daughter-in-law and even enjoys being around his sons-in-law.
