Growing up in a Christian home where his family actively served the Lord, Bro. Tim learned early in life the importance of the church. At the age of 8 years old, he bowed down beside a little, brown couch at home and trusted Christ as his personal Saviour.
During a Spring Revival in 1982 at the age of 17, Tim made a public declaration before the church of his call to preach the gospel. He taught Sunday School classes, ran a bus route, preached nursing homes, went street preaching and weekly door to door visitation for the church.
In 1987 Bro. Tim met his future wife, Deana McCree. It was June of 1989 that they were married and continued in Bible College at Tabernacle Baptist College in Greenville, SC, under Dr. Harold Sightler. Tim earned his Bachelor’s degree in Theology in 1992 and immediately began to pastor.
After pastoring and planting churches for the last 28 years in Louisiana and Mississippi, Pastor Weems accepted the call to pastor here at Grace Baptist Temple in Blackstone, VA in January of 2020.
Bro. Tim and Mrs. Deana have three grown children: Caleb, Selah (Colton)and Hannah; and one beautiful grandson, Justice Williamson.
