Children's Pastor

Tim Franklin is our Children's Minister. Tim and Cindy grew up here in Denison. They were married in 1999 and in 2012 they adopted their two girls from Ukraine. Alona is now 14 and Katya is 12.

Tim accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior when he was 11 years old. Growing up in a church that had strong Children's and Bus Ministries set the foundation for the work he is doing now. He ran his first church van route when he was 18 years old. That van route grew to the point that he was making 2 trips on a Sunday morning. He soon began to run a bus on the east side of Denison, running all the way out to Carpenters Bluff.

After many years of leading Children's Church Tim knew that God was calling him to be a full time Children's Pastor. He was ordained in July 2015 and began to seek exactly where God would lead him. It became evident that God had plans for him here at Calvary Baptist. In October of the same year he and his family came to Calvary Baptist as our Children's Pastor. Cindy is also working alongside Tim in the Children's Department when she isn't working as a Veterinarian. Alona and Katya are always right in there helping in many ways.

When they get a chance they all like to slip away and go camping. They take their dog, Dasha, along when possible and have a great time cooking over an open fire, riding bikes, swimming and fishing.
