Evangelist Tim Sutton grew up attending the Salvation Army Church in High Point, NC. From an early age, he ministered the word in preaching, and in music. At age 10 he began sharing his testimony in public street meetings to the lost. Also, at age 10 he began playing the trumpet and excelled in the local church. In 1998, 2001, 2006, and 2010 he released worship CD’s entitled, “Lift Jesus Higher” “Gospel Trumpet” “He Sits on the Throne’’ and “We Bow Down.”
At age 15, God called Tim to full-time preaching ministry, saying “Go to all the world and preach the gospel.” God said, “You’re going to do that!” After their marriage in May of 1978, Tim & Gwen Sutton attended the Salvation Army School for Officers Training in Atlanta GA. In 1981, Tim & Gwen graduated Bible school and were ordained to a local Salvation Army Church in Beaufort, SC. Tim also is a 2011 graduate of Impact University in Clemmons, NC where he holds a Masters of Theology degree. In 1986, Tim and Gwen founded Living Faith Christian Center, a nondenominational church in Beaufort, SC. They pastored a local church for a total of 8 years in that city. In 1988, the Holy Spirit spoke to Tim’s heart saying, “Go join yourself to Agape Faith Church, and you will travel out of that ministry.” Soon, God spoke the same thing to Gwen as well. In May of 1989 they moved with their children, Bethany, Philip, and Joy to Lewisville, NC where they have their ministry headquarters, and offices.
Tim now travels extensively, out of the covering of Agape Faith Church, where he is ordained. For over 30 years his ministry has touched local churches in the US & worldwide. His ministry includes preaching the word with signs following, ministry in music, and teaching/training the local church in soulwinning/evangelism. Recent ministry has also included conducting crusades in cities across the nation to touch communities and “Impact America” for Jesus! Working with numerous local pastors and ministries Tim’s team conducts these “Impact America Crusades” that attract vast numbers of unchurched people with the goal of feeding the new converts into the local church. A major emphasis continues to be the raising up evangelism teams worldwide to reap the harvest. For over twenty years Tim has conducted his Agape School of Evangelism in local and international churches. The purpose: Mobilizing the local church in winning the lost outside the four walls of the church! In August of 2003 the Holy Spirit spoke this word to Tim. “Your purpose the reason you were born is to stir the church for the harvest and get take them outside the walls of the church.” “Ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me!” (Acts 1:8 ) We’re expecting power! It is time to win the lost to Jesus!
