Rev. Dr. Tim Archibald


Tim grew up in Nova Scotia where he was formed in faith by Glenelg Presbyterian Church. He received a BA (Hon) from Acadia University and a M.A. from Saint Mary’s University (both in History) before discerning a call to Christian Ministry. He graduated with an M.Div. from Knox College, University of Toronto. After serving in Tyne Valley, Prince Edward Island, he was appointed as a Church Planter in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. During his 23 years at Kings Presbyterian Church, he led this fledgling aid-receiving group through early formation, a building program and finally to mortgage-free, full self-supporting, missional ministry. While there Tim married Joyce, a registered nurse, and they had three children: Noah, David and Laura. During this time, at Kings Church Tim completed a D.Min. at Acadia University with a concentration in vision and congregational vitality.  Tim was then called to lead a ministry of renewal and re-Visioning at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Calgary, AB. In the spring of 2022, Tim was called to Oakridge Presbyterian Church, London, ON. Tim’s greatest passion is growing deeper Christian discipleship, vital spiritual engagement and missional ministry. Tim enjoys running, swimming, cross-country skiing, hiking, and camping with the family.
