Tim Boone

Interim Minister for Congregational Lifeoffice: 865-246-4678

Tim was born in North Carolina but lived most of his life in different parts of Africa. He is a graduate of Carson-Newman University and Mercer University’s McAfee School of Theology this year. Tim and his wife Miranda came to First Baptist in January 2019 from Atlanta, Georgia where they lived for three years. However, the pair considers East Tennessee home, and when they are not at church, they are most likely exploring the outdoors with their Great Dane, Nala. Furthermore, Tim is no stranger to the FBC family. In 2015, he served as Ministry Resident where he developed skills in young adult ministry and pastoral care. This experience is a significant part of his call to ministry. He feels privileged to join the staff at this great church and brings years of experience in young adult, youth, and missions to First Baptist. Tim believes that First Baptist Knoxville is a place to call home. Whatever your gifts, passions, age, or background, there is a place for you to discover and enrich your faith in this faith community. Tim supervises the Youth, Young Adult, and Missions ministries at First Baptist. He would be happy to share more with you about these ongoing ministries and ways for you to get involved.
