Bio

Tim and Marge Garren serve along Nova Scotia's South Shore, currently in the town of Lockeport on the Atlantic Coast. Tim grew up in a Christian home and school in Greenville, SC, and graduated from Bob Jones University's School of Applied Studies.  His involvement in high school and college summer mission teams introduced him to the needs in Nova Scotia, and after raising support, he returned for his first term in 1987.

Marge grew up in Washington Court House, Ohio, and graduated from BJU in 1987.  She and Tim met in 1990 in one of Tim's supporting churches, and they were married in 1995.  As a family, God has given the Garrens amazing opportunities in their small community and local public schools to volunteer and to share Christ through testimony and witness.  The Garrens have three daughters: Abigail, Esther, and Grace.

Over the years Tim has served as an assistant pastor, youth pastor, camp program director, boys home counselor, senior pastor, and church planter. 

Since 1997, he has pastored Lockeport Independent Baptist Church. This is where the Garrens are re-focusing their efforts after 11 years of dividing their energies between ministries in Lockeport and in Liverpool. 

The church plant in Liverpool, South Shore Baptist Church, recently purchased their own church building and called their first full-time pastor, so the Garrens transitioned out of that ministry, and are praising God for raising up a local body of believers in the thriving town of Liverpool.  The Garrens' current emphasis is evangelizing the Lockeport area, revitalizing Lockeport Indpendent Baptist Church, and encouraging believers in like-minded ministries throughout the Maritime provinces.
