Interim Pastor

Rev. Dr. Tim Perkins, Interim Pastor

For close to 34 years, Pastor Tim served Bethel-Bethany UCC, located in the Sherman Park neighborhood of Milwaukee, where the congregation worked together to develop a culturally diverse congregation committed to being “out there” sharing God’s Love and building a more peaceful and just world. Through Emanuel’s Kurth Fund, Bethel-Bethany was blessed to be supported in its mission and its outreach to children and youth in the Sherman Park neighborhood. Pastor Tim has a deep love of the Church and the United Church of Christ and has served in the Association and Conference in a variety of ways including, most recently, as coordinator of the conference coaching initiative, member of the conference historical committee and creation care team, and elected member of the S.E. Association’s Church and Ministry Team. Pastor Tim is blessed to share life and love with Bonnie Andrews for over 40 years, and is blessed — along with Bonnie — to have a son, Noah, married to Peggy, and a daughter Julia married to Noam.  Pastor Tim has a passion for environmental justice, the guitar and musical composition, baseball, and local history, especially the history of Milwaukee churches.
