Pastor Tim Wessley
Pastor Tim was called to Clinton Christian Church February 1, 2016 as a part-time transitional pastor. After 6 months each entity (Pastor Tim and Clinton Christian Church) decided that the fit was a good one and he was hired on as full-time pastor August 1, 2016.
Pastor Tim graduated from the University of Missouri, Columbia in 1996 after 7 grueling years of rigorous study and earned his General Studies degree, with the main emphasis in graphic design, computer graphics and computer animation (most people that go to college for 7 years are doctors or engineers. Not Pastor Tim).
His pastoral studies were completed in 2008 from Central Baptist Theological Seminary with an MDiv degree (Masters of Divinity).
Pastor Tim became a pastor later in life. He has had many life experiences and the rumor is that he has had approximately 150 different jobs in his lifetime (everything from managing bowling centers to running his own not for profit thrift store). These many jobs didn’t make him any smarter but gave him much experience dealing with different situations.
Pastor Tim was born and raised in Raytown, MO and still resides there with his wife Tina, whom he has been happily married to since 2002. He has two sons, Monte (wife Krissie, kids Karl, Cortez, Jackson and Emmie) and Matthew (wife Lara and daughter Isabella), and two step sons, Chris (daughter Laina (deceased)) and Jace. Pastor Tim also resides with his 3 dogs – Pepper, Doodles and Max.
In his spare time Pastor Tim enjoys working on artistic projects for the church, juggling, magic, and a little bit of ventriloquism.

Music Director, Debbie Reith
Debbie Reith has been attending the Clinton Christian Church for a few years now and joined the church in 2022. Debbie has sung and played the piano since she could crawl onto the piano bench and has been involved in music her whole life. She is very grateful to the Lord for bringing her to the wonderful church family at Clinton Christian. She is especially thankful to be involved in the worship service through her music.
