About Pastor Tim Cruse

Tim Cruse grew up in a challenging situation. He became the head of the house at a very young age – starting public work at age 12. Working multiple jobs, he made sure the monthly bills were paid and helped care for his struggling family.

At the age of 15, he began working at the Stowe A-way Fish House in Concord, NC. By age 17, he was named the manager. He drove a school bus starting at age 16. Elected President of the Student Body and of the National Honor Society for his senior year at North Rowan High School in Spencer, NC, he earned academic scholarships to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Catawba College in Salisbury, NC.
