Leadership


At MBC, our leadership structure follows Paul's commands in 1 Timothy and Titus.


Our Elders compassionately oversee the spiritual matters of church by graciously ministering through the Word, praying for our church family, our community and our world and keeping watch that sound doctrine is being taught.


Our Deacons thoughtfully tend to the practical aspects of church by dispensing benevolence funds to those in need, preparing the annual budget and caring for members during crisis, sickness and loss.

  • Pastor Tim Dunn

    Elder


    At 27, Tim has lived in three countries, spanning two continents, in less than three decades. Finishing his Master's of Divinity at Southern Seminary at the same time he worked for a Baptist church in Virginia, God generously and graciously opened a door for him to relocate to the Northeast, particularly the beautiful town of Milford, PA.


    Tim grew up in Northern Ireland, attending school and university there, focusing on the Arts, and majoring in History. It was during this time that he came to faith in Christ as the only way of salvation. After graduating, he left Ireland and moved to London to work for a church in Fulham and Hammersmith. He completed the Cornhill Preaching Course while in London, was mentored by his pastor and was advised to attend seminary. He also received an MA in Church History from the University of Nottingham during this time.


    Beyond his work, Tim enjoys academia, particularly history, as well as sports, music, writing and technology.
