Tim Harlow is Senior Pastor of Parkview Christian Church, a multi-site church of about 8,000 in the south suburbs of Chicago. Tim and his family moved to Chicago in 1990, when it was a church of 150 people in a heavily unchurched area. Now the church is an indispensable part of the community, made up of former gang leaders and business owners, ex-strippers and soccer moms alike, all excited about Jesus and involved doing ministry in the greater Chicago area and around the world.
Tim graduated in 1983 with a B.B.L. from Ozark Christian College, where he has returned to speak on several occasions. He received a Masters in Religion from Wayland Baptist University in Texas and a Doctorate in Ministry from Northwest Graduate School in Seattle. He and his wife, Denise, have three children.
