Pastor Timothy Carpenter was born in Youngstown, Ohio. He was raised in a Christian home where both parents were charter members of the Mt. Calvary Pentecostal Church. At the age of thirteen Pastor Carpenter also accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior, and became and active member of the church under the pastorate of Eld. James E. Tyson.


Pastor Tim's musical ability became evident at the tender age of three. He began formal lessons at age four and studied classical piano for many years. His classical training along with his ability to play by ear allowed him to become one of gospel music's premier pianists. As a composer, studio musician, workshop clinician, and musical director, Pastor Tim has worked with many of gospel music's icons. 

Hearing and accepting God's call to the spoken word ministry in 1997, Pastor Carpenter immersed himself in the study of the Word as it relates to daily living. Always one to look beyond what he has heard from others, his approach to preaching is fresh and relevant. He deems himself as a "preacher of small words" and strives to deliver a message that is both inspiring and applicable. He proclaims, "A message is only as good as its application"!

In 2005 Pastor Tim, with his wife, Pastor Denise, launched out in ministry founding God's Way Ministries International. God's Way is not just the name, but the foundation of the church. Pastor Tim's love for all of God's people has granted him favor with many denominations. Pulpits have been opened to his unique delivery of God's word because he focuses his messages on that which concerns man's salvation and growth. Pastor Tim has been blessed to carry the gospel both through spoken word and song throughout many countries. He enjoys immersing himself in the different cultures and is often found on the streets of foreign countries just taking in the sights and sounds when he has leisure time.

Pastor Tim has served on faculty at Dennison University for many years and currently holds the position coordinator of gospel studies for the department of music. 

He always enjoys the company of his immediate and extended family, Denise, Micah, Jaime, and Molly, Michael, Kim, Daniel, Simone, Bishop, Courtney, Karen, Aaron, Kristel, Paul, and Shawn; and his grandchildren, Hollyn, Mackenzie, Julian and Canaan, Kevin Jr., Kierre, Laila, Zaida, Bishop David, Isaiah, Isabella, and Kaydence
