Pastor Tim Chrisman

Tim Chrisman has been the pastor of Little River since August, 2009.
Tim is originally from Sandston, Virginia and graduated from Highland Springs High School. He graduated from Bluefield College in 1996 and then earned his Master of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1999 and was ordained in 2000. It was at college that Tim met his wife Keri. 
After seminary, Tim accepted the call to serve as the bi-vocatioal pastor of Tsena Commocko Baptist Church near Providence Forge, Virginia. Serving the small Native American congregation for nine years  was an incredible blessing and during that time God gave Tim and Keri two daughters, Kaylee and Emily. It was difficult to leave Tsena Commocko, but the Chrisman’s received a call from Little River Baptist Church. They had a strong impression God was leading them to Little River, so they moved to Bumpass, Virginia and accepted the call.
Tim received a PH. D in Theology and Apologetics at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary at Liberty University in Lychburg, Virginia in 2015.
