The Rev. Timothy Fleck
Fr. Tim is excited to have been called to St. Thomas in 2020, after serving parishes in the Dioceses of Maine, Kentucky, and Indianapolis.

Tim grew up in a family of schoolteachers in Indiana, earned an AB in History & Science from Harvard and a Master of Architecture from Columbia. He practiced architecture in Indianapolis and designed many churches before being called to ordained ministry, for which he studied at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis and Bexley Hall Seminary in Columbus, Ohio.

My life centers around my faith in Jesus Christ and my family. I've been a Christian since I was six years old.  In that time I have seen the faithfulness of the Lord and His goodness even during difficult times. I have been happily married for 16 years and the Lord has blessed me with two children. I have obtained a Bachelors of Science Degree in Psychology from  Albizu University. I will pursue a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling in the near future from the same University. I have 8 years of experience in the classroom. Teaching about the eternal love Christ has for us is my life's calling and is my purpose. May God shower you with favor!
