Pastor Timothy Darling

Lead Pastor

Tim and his wife Dawn have been married for over 28 years and are just getting started. It’s always been Tim’s goal and greatest pleasure to know and share God’s Word with God’s people. He’s served at this calling for over 40 years in many roles as a volunteer teacher, as an actor, as a college teacher, as a writer, and as a pastor. He is grateful that God has so persistently used him in this capacity and is very happy to serve here at Community.

Tim loves reading biographies, history, mysteries, and fantasy novels. Of course as a dramatist, he likes movies and has dabbled with creative writing. He and Dawn like being tolerated by a cat and traveling to see as much of God’s great world as they can.

Amy Goodwin

Director of
Children’s Ministry

For most of Amy’s life, she knew she would be the happiest in a job where she was involved in the lives of children.  After completing college and marrying her husband George, she spent 10 years teaching kindergarten in the public school system. Now a parent of four children – Alyse, Cole, Luke, and Mia – Amy is grateful God has led her to work part-time as CMF’s Children’s Ministry Director. 

Amy loves the outdoors and enjoys going for walks with friends, fishing, planting flowers (not weeding!), kayaking and sitting around a campfire with her family.
