Pastor Tim & Carolyn Satryan

Pastor Tim and Carolyn, both originally from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, met as music students at the Duquesne University School of Music, where Pastor Tim was a woodwind major, and Carolyn was a vocal major. Pastor Tim studied under the mentoring of a graduate of the Paris Conservatory, while Carolyn studied with Italian opera singer, Claudia Pinza.
 
Immediately after their marriage, Pastor Tim and Carolyn moved to Springfield, Missouri, where he received his biblical education at Central Bible College (now Evangel University.) The Satryans then returned to Pennsylvania, where they served as associate pastors at Monroeville Assembly of God, until being elected to serve the Pennsylvania-Delaware District of the Assemblies of God as the District Director of Youth and Music Ministries.
 
Pastor Tim has served as the lead pastor at four Assemblies of God churches in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey. He also served for over a decade as the Presbyter for the state of Delaware, and traveled nationally with the Assemblies of God’s Church Multiplication Network, facilitating Church Planting and Church Revitalization “boot camps.” 
 
The Satryans have two adult daughters. Jessica, their oldest, has degrees in music and theater, and now resides with her husband in the Washington, DC area where they both teach high school theater. Chrystalynn, their youngest, lives in Ocala, Florida, where she is a professional equestrian and serves as the manager at Kimberden, a full care horse show and training facility.
 
The passion of Pastor Tim’s ministry is reflected in his oft-heard statement –“It’s ALL about relationships!” Believing that “the Kingdom of God is a kingdom of right relationships,” his ministry is built upon leading people to a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ, encouraging right relationships with one another in meaningful community, and right relationships with the world around them through living a life that purposefully demonstrates Christ within us.
 
One of Pastor Tim’s passions is Marine Reef Aquaria, and he keeps a fully-stocked reef aquarium in his office at Valley Chapel!
