Dr. Tim Madding joined the North American Division Evangelism Institute in 2021 and serves as the Director with a focus on revitalization, discipleship and church planting by equipping students at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary as well as pastors throughout the North American Division. Prior to that, Tim served in the Potomac Conference for seven years as Lead Pastor of the Beltsville Church where they planted three additional campuses in the community (one online). Before the Potomac Conference, he served as a conference Ministerial Director in Pennsylvania, and pastored both in the Kentucky-Tennessee and Washington Conferences. He is married to Andrea, a physical therapist and graduate of the Andrews University School of Physical Therapy. They have one young adult son, Ethan. Tim earned an undergraduate degree in Pastoral Ministry from Weimar College (1993), a Masters of Divinity from Andrews University (1996), and a Doctor of Ministry from Andrews University in Evangelism and Church Growth (2012).
Tim believes that the local church is God’s primary tool for the salvation of the world and as such, seeks to intentionally develop and equip students, pastors and leaders in the North American Division in leadership, church planting, evangelism and disciple-making. He is most often known for his passion for the local community, living homeless in Washington, DC and walking around in chains each for a week in an effort to bring awareness to the needs of the homeless and human trafficked.
