Pastors & Staff

Pastor Tim & Gale Parton

Senior Pastor

Pastor Tim Parton has been involved in Gospel Ministry since age of 15 when his mom and dad, feeling led by God to place something in his hands, bought Tim his first guitar.  Within 3 weeks, he was playing the guitar and God had given him the first of many songs that he would write. Tim will be the first one to tell you that he feels very humbled and grateful for everything that God has done in his life. God has used the talents that He placed in Tim`s life to touch people around the world. Tim`s songs have been played in over 200 countries around the world on radio and television. Before he became a pastor, Tim and his wife Gale toured in the US and Canada on a regular basis. In 2014,  they felt a shift in the direction that God wanted to use them, and on August 3, 2014 they founded Abundant Life Worship Center in Sevierville Tennessee where Tim serves as the Senior Pastor.  The Vision is just beginning and the “Best” is yet to come.
