Timothy C. Mitchell has a lot of experience in the field of finances. Raised in a family of average means by a father who was an astute money manager, he learned these principles early on. He started out at 16 as a bag-boy at A & P Food stores, many times thumbing a ride to work from out in the country where he was raised. He worked his way through college during which at one time both his parents were in the same hospital room, one suffering from a heart-attack and the other dying with cancer. Upon graduation he took a struggling home missions church. When he left a few years latter there was a new educational wing debt-free. Then he spent some years on the evangelistic field traveling across the country.
When God called him to start a home missions church in Montgomery, Alabama he opened a business to support himself. For over twenty years he did not take any finances from the church choosing to be self-supporting like the Apostle Paul. Along with many successful real estate investments and wise spending practices, he has met the financial goal set when he was young.
Averaging around 100 in attendance 20 years ago, he relocated the church and built a new facility with an indebtedness of $700,000. Today the church is debt-free, sits on 10 ½ acres of prime land facing the interstate and valued at $4 million. It all adds up to wise spending, prudent investing and God’s blessings on Biblical principles that work.
