Tim has served on the EFCA West team as Church Planting director since 2016, mobilizing pastors and churches to multiply. After planting a church in Mesa, Arizona, Tim has spent more than 12 years as lead pastor of Compass Church in Goodyear, Arizona, a congregation that has grown from 220 to about 800 under his leadership.
Originally from Southern California, Tim and his wife Judi have three children. Tim received his B.S. in Business Administration from Pepperdine University, California (1996). He earned his Master of Divinity from Talbot School of Theology, California (2002), and he holds a Doctor of Ministry from Dallas Theological Seminary (2011).
We are pleased by God’s provision of Tim Jacobs to lead EFCA West, and we look forward with anticipation for what God will do in and through his leadership of EFCA West in the years to come. Tim will officially transition into the role December 1, 2019, for a 30-day transition window with current Superintendent Steve Highfill.
Join us in celebrating God’s goodness and praying for a smooth and seamless transition.
