Senior Pastor - Tim Fowler

Following a 9-year stint in the Navy, navigating the waters of entrepreneurship, and navigating corporate landscapes that didn't align with my calling, I found my true purpose when God beckoned me into the ministry. Serving the Almighty has been the most fulfilling and rewarding journey, making Him the best boss I've ever had.

With three decades dedicated to ministry and 17 years as the pastor of The Body, I've worn many hats—from guiding youth to serving as an associate pastor before stepping into the role of senior pastor. Along the way, I've earned my Master's in Theology, and though the pursuit of a Doctorate is ongoing, I like to humorously claim it's a testament to the depth of the subject matter.

For over four decades, I've been happily married to my incredible wife, JoAnne, and together we've been blessed with three amazing children and nine delightful grandchildren. Our household is lively with two dogs, one of which has convinced herself she's human. When not immersed in ministry, JoAnne and I find joy in motorcycle rides, globe-trotting, scuba diving, hiking, and occasionally indulging in our favorite pastime—sleeping. I also find pleasure in fishing, golf, and proudly support the Gamecocks and Braves.

The Body isn't just a church; it's the realization of a pastor's dream. The authenticity of its people and the depth of our ministry have been an immense blessing. I extend a warm, personal invitation for you to join us in any of our activities at The Body. Together, let's experience the joy of genuine fellowship and worship.
