Timothy Peoples – Emerywood Baptist Church

A native of Jones, Oklahoma, Timothy attended Adrian College where he received his B.A. in Religious Studies before earning his Master of Divinity degree from Yale University School of Divinity. Prior to his current role as Senior Minister at Emerywood Baptist Church here in High Point, Timothy has served churches in Michigan, Connecticut, and Texas. When he’s not chasing around his horse-size dog, Frankie, you can find him searching for the best pie with is fiance Valerie Lott, or even listening to Patti LaBelle beside the pool (table). He will be getting married in July; hopefully, these dance moves will come in handy.
