Tim Gilliland

Senior Pastor

Tim has been married to Julie for 34 years. They have four sons.

He was born in Andrews, Texas and raised in a strong Christian home. Born-again at an early age, his life was radically changed at 17 when he encountered Jesus at a deeper level and began to discover the joy & wonder of fully surrendering to the Lord.

After receiving a bachelors of science degree in psychology & philosophy from West Texas State University (now West Texas A & M), he went on to earn his MDiv from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Pastor Tim, Julie and their family served as missionaries to the Mescalero people in the mid-1990s before pastoring FBC Ruidoso for twelve years.

“We started Church out of Church in 2009, which eventually was renamed River Crossing Ministries In 2017. These last nine years have been an ongoing discovery of the depths of God’s love & grace - most fully expressed through the finished work of Jesus! We are so thankful to have been given the gift of righteousness that allows us to fully experience the supernatural life & love of the Holy Spirit every day! Life is not about religion but rather a love relationship with Jesus, our Creator God!”
