Timothy J. King
Care Elder – 3-year term beginning January 1, 2021
I am fifty-three years old and have been married to my lovely wife, Joan, since May 15, 2004. We have two beautiful daughters, Hannah and Heather. Hannah is fifteen years old and in her first year at Chicago Christian High School. Heather is eleven years old and is beginning middle school at the SCCS campus across from Calvary. Joan is a nurse in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at John H. Stroger Hospital of Cook Country.
After graduating from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL, I became an ordained minister of Word and Sacrament in Reformed Church in America on December 13, 1997. Since then, I have served as a pastor, minister under contract, worship director and youth director at congregations in Illinois and Indiana. My most recent position occurred from August 20, 2006 to May 31, 2015 at Parkview Presbyterian Church in Oak Park, IL. Prior to my time at Parkview, I completed a residency in Clinical Pastoral Education with Resurrection Health Care in Chicago, IL.
Currently I am employed at Park Lawn, which provides education and support to people with developmental disabilities in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. Prior to the pandemic I transported clients from their homes or CILAs to Parklawn facilities and places of employment. Now I’m serving as activity aide at Park Lawn Center in Alsip.
In the midst of unprecedent times, we’re excited to be at Calvary Church and hopeful about what God will do in our lives.
