Tim LeCroy Bio

Thanks for dropping by!

My name is Tim LeCroy and this is my website. I am a pastor. I am the husband of Rachel and the father of Ruby and Lucy.

I was born and raised in South Carolina, and moved to Raleigh, NC to attend North Carolina State University, where I met my wife. I was raised Pentecostal and became Presbyterian in college. I majored in Chemical Engineering at NC State and served as a missionary in Europe for a year after graduation. After returning stateside Rachel and I married and we moved to St. Louis to attend Covenant Seminary, where I received a Master of Divinity. Next I enrolled at Saint Louis University for a PhD in Historical Theology, graduating in 2012. In early 2012 I became the pastor of a small church in Columbia, MO and served there for seven years. In 2019 I was called to serve as Senior Pastor of Grace and Peace Fellowship in St. Louis.

In addition to being a pastor, husband, and father, I am also a scholar. I am Instructor of Historical Theology at Covenant Theological Seminary where I teach the Ancient and Medieval course. I have a PhD in Historical Theology from Saint Louis University majoring in medieval and minoring in patristic theology. I have given several conference papers and invited lectures on these topics. In 2015 I had the honor of acting as respondent to Robert Louis Wilken (noted patristics scholar) at the Nevin lectures held at Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham.  I have works published on the Didache (early church), St. Bonaventure (Medieval Scholasticism), and Jan Hus (late medieval, Pre-Reformation). My dissertation was on Carolingian ecclesiology with a focus on the Eucharist (early Medieval). I have a published translation of Bonaventure’s Commentary on the Sentences. I contributed a chapter to Heal Us, Emmanuel, a book about race and the gospel written by PCA leaders.

I am currently serving as the chair of the General Assembly‘s Ad Interim Committee on Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault. I have appeared on a podcast with Rachel Denhollander discussing our work together on that committee.

I serve on the editorial board of the website Semper Ref. Several of my essays are published on that website. I’ve also had work published at the Theopolis Institute, Mere Orthodoxy, and ByFaith. I have been interviewed by several newspapers and magazines, including The Atlantic.

This site contains the various observations, thoughts, and questions which I have come across in my pastoral ministry and academic work.
