Timothy J. Winters was called to ministry in 1969 and ordained in 1971. He was called to Bayview in June 1973. Under his leadership and ministry, Bayview has grown from a membership of less than 60 families that met in a converted three-bedroom house, to a vibrant, thriving, and growing congregation of over 2,500. The church edifice is now a multi-level, multi-purpose building that accommodates an audience of 1,200. Pastor Winters' ministry is highlighted by two churches that were: "planted" through his visionary leadership. They are both now thriving independent congregations. The 40,000 square foot Martin Luther King, Jr. Christian Center was completed in May 1995 to accommodate Bayview's ever-expanding Christian Education ministry, and to meet the needs of the community. It houses Nubia Leadership Academy, the first church-based Charter School in California. Nubia began in September 1997 with an enrollment of 170 students in Grades K-5. The next grade level will be added each year.
The New Covenant Church has not been the same since Dr. Winters shared the Biblical Debt-Free principles along with Grace Giving. This book will revolutionize the thinking action of Christians about money.
Money problems are often the ruin of many families including Christian families. Faith and Finances is therapeutic for families and the inner life of the church as well.
It was an unusual experience to observe how the topic of money was handled so uniquely, practically and with spiritual fervor.
