TIMOTHY PASTTimothy Ministries has a history that trails back to 1960. It was the year that Larry Correll and Susan Winey met. Both believers in Jesus Christ, they were married in 1965. God has blessed them with a lifetime of Christian ministry, family and friends, and world adventure. Susan was born in Kansas City, Missouri and adopted into an Indiana family. Raised in an evangelical Methodist Church, she received Jesus as her own personal Saviour when she was eleven. At 16, she made a commitment to follow her Lord as a missionary. Little did she know that God would honor her decision, at first, through many years as a pastor's wife here in America.
Larry grew up in Mishawaka, Indiana and asked Christ into his heart at 16, beginning his lifelong walk the Lord. They enrolled and graduated, together, from Taylor University. Early in their marriage, Larry and Susan were sent to pastor two small country churches in central Indiana. It was then that they began their family which, today, numbers three adult children, spouses, and their ten grandchildren. During many years of pastoring local churches, Susan also earned her Masters Degree as a K-12 Reading Teacher and became a specialist in Developmental Education. Larry completed his graduate ministry degree at Christian Theological Seminary, and earned his Doctor of Ministry from Trinity Theological Seminary while serving as senior pastor at churches in Indiana, Michigan, California, and Wisconsin. He also served as a faculty member and chaplain at two colleges and was elected President of Piedmont College in Georgia. But a heart attack in 1980, from which he was later divinely healed, made it impossible to fulfill that position at the time. God used all of these experiences as His preparation for what was to come.
As American church leaders, both Larry and Susan were active in Bible teaching & missionary training, music ministry, leadership development, and the "rescue and revival" of struggling churches. In 1993, they answered a new call to serve as missionaries in England, where their responsibilities expanded to include both western and eastern Europe. In 1996, Larry and Susan founded Timothy Ministries, a Mission Bible
Fellowship that works to "rescue & revive" struggling churches and leaders. In 1999, the mission work grew to encompass preaching and teaching in South Africa. Since the early 90s, God has blessed Larry and Susan with effective ministry across Europe, Africa, and North America, where they've partnered and worked with many American, British, Irish, Belgian, Romanian, Russian, Xhosa, Zulu, and Congolese Christians, in local churches.
Little did these two young people know what lay ahead when they said "Yes" to Jesus all those years ago ... Bible College teaching, evangelism, leadership training,
Educational development, planting new congregations, and the rescue of many older churches to a new and bright future. Thank you for reading this brief history of the people the Lord has used to birth Timothy Ministries. May God get all the Glory!
