Tim Young

Tim holds the position of College and Youth Minister. Primarily, his hours are spent connecting college students into the life of GABC and investing in the lives of the youth at GABC through Youth Group on Wednesday evenings, individual discipleship meetings, youth events, and larger youth conferences/mission trips. In addition, Tim spends some hours working on the sound quality of GABC services as well as some of the musical logistics behind our worship times.

Tim is married to Samantha, and they have two boys, Elliot (5) and William (3). They are also foster parents for infants in the Story County area.

Originally from Clarion, IA, Tim moved to Ames to complete his schooling at Iowa State University. There he met his wife, and they have been residents of Ames for the past 8 years.

Tim holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology with minors in Sociology and Religious Studies from Iowa State University.

Tim has a passion for studying God’s Word and is a kid at heart. These passions meld well in youth ministry and the family-based perspective of GABC provides a great channel for Tim to come behind parents in communicating the Gospel to middle and high school students.

Tim enjoys a good DIY project, exploring a park with his boys, and watching a classic episode of The West Wing with his wife.
