DR. TIMOTHY CHAD PIGG
Timothy Pigg serves as the lead pastor of Fellowship Church, with campuses in Immokalee and Ave Maria in southwest Florida. His work and ministry has allowed him to serve in many local church contexts over the last 14 years. This has birthed in Timothy a love for the local church, ecclesiology, and text-driven preaching and practice.
A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Timothy had the incredible privilege of growing up under the expositional preaching of Dr. Jerry Vines and attending the yearly Jacksonville Pastor's Conference. Timothy moved to Texas and studied under Dr. Paige Patterson at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth for seven years, earning a Bachelor’s of Arts in Humanities (2013), a Master of Divinity (2015), and a Doctorate in Ministry (2020). While at Southwestern, Timothy served as an assistant under Dr. Waylan Owens in the School of Education. Timothy also served on staff in several local churches in North Texas.
In 2020, Timothy joined together with several pastors and laymen throughout the Southern Baptist Convention to launch the Conservative Baptist Network — a group focused on maintaining a longstanding, convention-wide commitment to the inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture. He serves on the Conservative Baptist Network Steering Council, coordinates State Chapters, and is editor of the Conservative Baptist Bulletin.
Timothy also serves as Church Planting Trainer with the North American Mission Board and serves on the Board of Missions at the Florida Baptist Convention. With a desire to come alongside pastors and local churches, Timothy launched and serves on a Church Relations Team for his local association. In 2021, Timothy launched the Text-Driven Podcast, dedicated to equipping believers to know God and make Him known through text-driven preaching and practice.
Timothy is married to Jessica, a writer for the Florida Baptist Convention, Conservative Baptist Network Press, and contributor to The Devotional for Women, The Devotional for Women: Psalms & Proverbs, and the Daily Devotional Bible for Women. The two have called sunny, southwest Florida home since May 2015.
