Favorite Scripture -
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” - Romans 8:38-39 (NIV)
Tim and Branette Richards
Tim’s teaching, and leadership, reflect his own life’s adventure in ministry, business, and writing. Having moved to the Dungeness Valley as a child, Tim has an appreciation for the area's history. He is quick to share an anecdote of how things used to be, with an eye to how things can be with love of Christ.
Tim moved to Sequim at age of 10 where he met his wife, Branette, in eighth grade, at the bus stop, and the rest is history.
After High School, Tim & Branette both attended Prairie Bible College, each earning a Bachelors in Religious Education. They married in 1984.
After a brief time back in Sequim, they moved to Southern California where Tim attended Talbot School of Theology at Biola University.
While in Graduate School, Tim served as a Youth Pastor as well as working part-time for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Emergency Operations Bureau. Tim later served for 10 years as a Chaplain with the Clallam County Sheriff’s Department.
In 1988, having completed his MDiv, he received a call to serve as an Associate Pastor at Sierra Bible Church in Sonora, California. He and Branette served there for eight years. During that time Tim also wrote curriculum for David C. Cook Publishing.
A significant part of Tim's story involves a crisis of faith. It was that crisis which led him out of pastoring for a time, feeling the need to separate his search from his paycheck. If you’d like to know more about his story go to www.thefaithpuzzle.org
In 1996 Tim & Branette moved back to Sequim where they became active members of Dungeness Community Church. Tim also pursued some entrepreneurial interests, inventing a small tool (The MixMizer ™) which is sold nationwide and founding NorthWest Supply, Inc., a company specializing in the liquidation of medical & scientific assets.
After 19 years in the business world, Dungeness Community Church asked if Tim would consider assuming the role of Lead Pastor. Sensing God's timing and leading to re-enter full-time ministry, Tim accepted the call and joined the staff on November 1, 2015.
Tim says, "This is an adventure of grace that only God could have orchestrated. We are just excited and grateful that He has invited us along for the ride."
Tim & Branette are proud parents of four grown children and seven grandchildren (for now).

After a career in public school administration, he and his wife, Shelley, retired and moved to Sequim from Bothell. He holds Ephesians 3:14-20 especially dear to his heart.

Ric gave his life to Jesus in college. “I found myself broken trying to make sense of the many mistakes I made and the experiences I had.” One of his favorite prayers is taken from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians in 1:17 for the spirit of wisdom and knowledge of Him. He retired from law enforcement after 29 years. He and his wife, Nada, moved to Sequim seven years ago and share a consulting business focused on helping agencies address the effects of domestic violence.
