WE'VE BEEN THINKING

Here at Timberline, 2020 has challenged us to think about church differently. We've always known that "church" is not a Sunday morning building or activity, yet it's easy to rest in that rut. So if we find that our Sunday morning meetings or normal ways of operating are shut down, then these things - while good things - must not be the only ways to build the Kingdom and make disciples. Instead of finding ourselves believing the lie that it is our job to get back to normal, to our former comfort, we want to see the cultural upheaval right now as a great open space to spread the love of God. We've been challenged to allow Scripture and the Holy Spirit to lead us away from our comfortable norms, and to follow the invitation to go wherever the Spirit is leading - both inside and outside of our Sunday morning gatherings.   

Who we are:

Staff

An introduction to the current staff at Timberline Church

 

SENIOR PASTOR

Marlin Nafziger loves God and loves people. He enjoys ‘thumping music’, volleyball, chocolate chip cookies and ping pong. He has always had a passion to build relationships with those that are in need, and leading Timberline since its inception has opened the door to many opportunities.

 

Marlin, his wife Lisa and their three daughters live in the country surrounded by trees, a stream and a pond. His          approach to ministry is simple, practical and straightforward.                                                  He is more concerned that people grasp the messages than                                                    that they are wowed by flash, fashion or flair.

 

ASSOCIATE PASTOR & YOUTH LEADER


Benji Martin is our enthusiastic Associate Pastor. He also leads the Youth Group that meets Wednesday nights.

 

Benji and his wife Melody enjoy laughing, making music, playing sports (especially spikeball), and drinking coffee with friends. Benji has a Social Work/Bible degree from Lancaster Bible College. He and Melody are new to the Southern Lancaster County area but care deeply for the heart of its people and                                                 the truth of the gospel.

 

CHURCH ADMINISTRATOR


Lindsay Putney loves her job! She grew up going to Timberline and loves seeing week to week how God works through it.

 

Lindsay doesn't really have that many hobbies (wait...people  have time for those?!) But she and her husband Caleb are of relative average cool-ness and enjoy most of the things that relatively average cool people do. Lindsay does love books, movies, and music that tell good stories, as well as hearing                                                      stories about people's lives and what God is doing. Lucky for                                                    her, coffeeshops (which she also loves) and stories are a                                                        match made it heaven, and more often than not, she gets to                                                  enjoy them together.

WORSHIP LEADER

 

Nicole Waltman loves to worship! Along with a talented crew of volunteers, she shares her passion with us each Sunday morning.

 

Nicole works as a vet tech at a Veterinary Hospital. She and her husband, Matt, and their pitbull, Bear, live in Ronks, PA.

 

CHILDREN'S MINISTRY DIRECTORS


 Bethany Kauffman has an incredible zeal for teaching children and watching them learn and grow. She believed that God can use children of any age in amazing ways! Her dream for the children at Timberline is that they become convinced that they are never too young to know and serve God. 

Bethany enjoys making beaded necklases and participating in active water and snow sports with her husband Marv.

 

Margaret Huber loves to see the children of Timberline                                                       grow closer to God and building relationships with one                                                           another. She enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband                                                 Chris, especially gardening, camping, or at the beach. 

 

JR. HIGH LEADER


 Perky Fredricks leads our lively Jr High class. She has a passion for not just teaching, but discipling, this important group of young people. She loves the energy and excitement they bring to the table.

 

Perky and her husband, Bill, and their family live in Quarryville
