Tim Thompson



Pastor Tim Thompson is the founding pastor of Venia Church in Murrieta, California.  He is a conservative family man - loving husband and father of two. 

Pastor Tim gained most of his ministry experience as a missions pastor at a church in Southern California where he traveled to countries around the world preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In 1995, at the age of 19, Pastor Tim gave his life to Jesus. Being a servant of God and a creation of God, Pastor Tim understands his daily need for God's grace in his life and depends upon Jesus for forgiveness of his sin. Having been forgiven much, Pastor Tim wants those he comes in contact with to experience that same grace in their life. 

Hence the name "Venia". Latin for grace, Pastor Tim has cast the vision that Venia Church will be a place where people will share the grace they received from God by loving people. He invites you to buckle your seatbelt and join him as Venia Church pours out the venia of Jesus into cultural corners previously considered taboo.
