Dr. Tim Williams

Senior Pastor

Tim Williams grew up in Spartanburg as did his wife Ryan. They were away for years before coming back to the area and to Roebuck Baptist in 1995. They have three adult children and three grandchildren. Tim's assessment of his place in ministry is simple: "God has blessed us by allowing us to serve the people of this community and this wonderful church family. If you're looking for a Christ-centered, missions-minded fellowship, Roebuck Baptist could just possibly be the church where God wants you to invest your life."

Dr. David Satterwhite 

Minister of Music

David and his wife Sandy began their ministry at Roebuck Baptist Church in June of 1987. They moved to Roebuck from Tampa, FL where they were high school sweethearts and married in 1983. David's ministries at Roebuck Baptist Church consist of worship leader and director of all music activities as well as serving in other areas of the church. His passion for worship is that as worshipers the body of Christ would be confronted by God through His word and drawn by the Holy Spirit to know him in a personal way.

​David has an Associate of Arts degree in vocal performance at Anderson University and has a Bachelor of Arts degree in vocal performance and a Masters of Music degree in choral conducting from the University of South Florida. He completed his work on a Doctorate of Worship Studies at the Robert Webber Institute for Worship Studies in June of 2004. David's life verse: "Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain." I Corinthians 15:58
