Pastor Geist

Timothy Paul Geist grew up in St. Paul, MN and joined the U.S. Navy in 1986. He was saved in 1987 when God used a college History course to show Tim that the Bible is truly the Word of God in its entirety (I Thessalonians 2:13; II Timothy 3:16). Pastor Geist served four years as an enlisted Sailor before returning to college in 1990 to finish his bachelor’s degree. He was commissioned in 1992 and spent the remainder of his Naval career in airborne reconnaissance. Pastor Geist oversees the Church’s finances and general business; the Music Ministry; Rest Home Ministries; and the Singles Pleasing God (SPG) Ministry. He acknowledged God’s call on his life to preach in 2006 and graduated from the church’s Bible Institute in 2007. He came on staff in February, 2008 to continue his preparation for the ministry under (then) Pastors Jeremiah and Robert Sargent, and was ordained a pastor of Bible Baptist Church May 6, 2012. Pastor Geist and his wife, Katie, are blessed with five children: two sons are serving in the military; three daughters are still at home and attend Bible Baptist School where Katie works as a volunteer.
