My name is Timothy Durey. I was born in a small farming community in Illinois, and was raised in a home where God was loved and served. God saved me at a young age, and I’ve had a passion for preaching God’s truth since I was a child. When I was in High School, God drew me closer to Himself and also confirmed His call on me to preach the Word. I went to college immediately following high school, and I married my high school sweetheart while in college. Upon graduation, I became the Pastor of Student Ministries at Calvary Baptist Church of Holland, MI. During my time at Calvary, God grew my family by giving us four exuberant children. God also continued to confirm His call on my life to preach. In 2010, God started working in my heart to pursue a pastorate position at another church. Through prayer, conversations and God’s wisdom, I began to pursue an opportunity to pastor at Ventura Baptist Church of Holland, MI. By God’s grace, I now pastor that wonderful church. I’m married to my high school sweetheart, I have five children and I am blessed immeasurably by God!
