Joel Tiemeyer

I’m the lead and founding pastor of TWBC in 1999. I have been happily married to my wife Sheri since 2002 and we have two amazing boys, Caleb & Aaron. Some of my favorite things to do are travel the globe, CrossFit and anything that involves adrenaline and adventure. “Life is not about how much stuff you can accumulate, but about how many experiences and memories you can create.“ - Joel Tiemeyer

Derrick Dillion

Pastor Derrick Dillion is the Executive Pastor of Administration/Weekend experience. I am married with to my beautiful best friend and we have 4 kids. We have been members of TWBC since 2011 and couldn’t imagine being any other place then here. I love the outdoors in any capacity and I find my place of peace on the water fishing. I have a passion for people in helping them see the love the God has for them. I never want anyone to feel they don’t have a place in The Fathers House because there’s always room for you. Thank you for joining us here and we look forward to growing with you.

Damon Wilks

I am Damon Wilks, one of your Executive Pastors. Me and my wife have been involved in TWBC for around 20 years when it started in a hotel meeting room. We have two amazing sons that are 20 and 17, and I have lived here my whole life outside of some time spent at Bible College. My wife moved here from Mexico when she was 12 years old. I oversee our NextGen Ministries (birth to 12th Grade) and our amazing team of Pastors/Directors who love your students more than you can ever know and want to see them evolve into EVERYTHING that God has for them. I also am over Next Steps which is our onboarding ramp for members to become involved in all the areas of ministry within the church. Personally, I enjoy the outdoors such as kayaking, shooting, hunting, fishing, exploring and spending time around the house and our land. I actually enjoy mowing, weed eating and maintaining our place as well as our acreage. If weather is right, you will always find me outside.

Jeff Tiemeyer

Being introverted by nature as well as an avid lover of puns and ‘Dad jokes’ makes me a pretty unique individual. I love to see people discover who they are in Christ as they learn how to allow the Holy Spirit to bring them fresh revelation from the Word. Along with my wife, Amy, I’ve served in virtually every area of ministry offered here at TWBC for almost 20 years now. We have two children, Zach, who’s 18 and Katie, 16. I currently serve as the Executive Pastor over GroupLife as well as TWBC’s Facilities Upkeep and Development.

Lindsey Collett

It may have taken a while but finding my belonging, purpose, and hearts desire through praise and worship has been exactly what God has been preparing me for my entire life! Singing since the age of 2 and being on the worship team since 2014 has been a process of gaining confidence as well as many lessons and training gained throughout time. Along with singing, I love being with my amazing yet crazy family that includes my witty, talented, and hot husband Zach as well as my 3 awesome kiddos Alley, Madi, and Logan. We all love to go fishing, play sports, and hang out with friends and family! Each one of them have been there by my side, encouraging me along the journey of accepting and walking out the role as Worship Leader in 2020! My hearts desire is for the Father’s passion and love that He has shown and given me, radiate to others in a life changing way that glorifies the Him!

Sheri Tiemeyer

My roots maybe from the Dallas-Fort Worth area but my heart is in Northeast Texas. Married my college sweetheart, Joel Tiemeyer, in 2002. God definitely knew we needed each other because this late night owl, movie watching homebody of a girl needed a boy that is adrenaline seeking and loves to travel. However, you can get me out of the house if you mention food and I love restaurant hopping. Our two boys are the best part of us unless they ask you to smell something, don’t do it! I enjoy date nights with the hubby and hang time with family and friends.
