|A native Ohioan, Tim Armstrong was born in Mansfield, on October 18, 1963. Tim joined his sister Patti as the second and last child of Robert and Peggy Armstrong.
A 1982 graduate of Mansfield Christian High School, Tim’s original pursuit was directed towards the field of business. However, after a short time he became convinced that the Lord’s direction for his life was in the ministry. He graduated from Cedarville University in 1989 with a Pre-Seminary Degree.
Tim and Michelle were married in 1991 and have twin daughters, McKenna Kate and Isabelle Grace who are currently attending Cedarville University and a teenage son, Jack.
Tim entered Dallas Theological Seminary in the Fall of 1992 and graduated four years later with a Masters of Theology (Th.M). Upon graduating from seminary in 1996, Tim led a group of thirty people and founded Crossroads Community Church. Crossroads has since grown to be the largest congregation in the Richland County area ministering to over two-thousand people weekly with a contemporary format that focused on a verse-by-verse exegetical teaching of God’s Word.
In July of 2014, Tim became the 5th Senior Pastor of The Chapel in it’s 80-year history in Akron, Ohio. The Chapel has campuses in Akron, Green, Wadsworth, Kenmore, and Cuyahoga Falls with a combined worship attendance of 5,000+. His vision, with God’s leading is to add additional campuses throughout NE Ohio in the years to come so that people will come to know Christ.
As the pastor-speaker of the radio program, The Worthy Walk, Tim's goal is to reach the lost with the Gospel of Christ via the airwaves.
