Tim Upchurch – Youth Director

Tim and Aimee UpChurch joined the Grace Point family in April of 2013, and shortly after Tim was hired as youth director. Tim and Aimee believe in the importance of family and a safe environment where the youth at Grace Point can grow to become the young men and women that God is shaping them to be. It is the desire of Tim and Aimee to work closely with the youth and help them be successful in their spiritual growth and to better understand the riches of God’s word and develop their gifts to take Christ beyond the walls of the local assembly.

Tim and Aimee have been married since 1999, and have two sons, Gabriel & Christian, both
who are active in helping with the youth ministry at Grace Point Baptist Church.
