TIMOTHY HOWARD, M.A., M.Div.
Full-Time Faculty with Davis College
My name is Rev. Timothy Howard Jr. I am an adjunct professor at Davis College and the Senior Pastor of Eastford Baptist Church, Eastford, Connecticut.The Lord saved me at the age of five years old after my dad and mom had recently been saved as well. God graciously did some amazing things in order to bring my whole family to saving faith, utilizing the witness of my grandmother as well as some faithful believers sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with my family. I grew up serving the Lord in my home church until the Lord called me into full-time, vocational ministry.Following that call, I left for Clark’s Summit University in Clark’s Summit, PA, (formerly Baptist Bible College & Seminary) where I met my wife Sarah, who is a talented musician both in the areas of piano and vocals. I graduated in 2007 with a B.S. in Bible/Theology and a M.A. in Biblical Studies. I also earned an M.Div. through The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, in Louisville, KY, and will be pursuing a Ph.D. soon. Sarah and I were married in 2009 and have three children, Karissa Faith, Timothy James (TJ), and Trinity Hope.My life’s desire is to glorify God by investing my life into the lives of others, which is why I am so thankful to be a part of the Davis team!
