He holds degrees from Houston Baptist University (B.A.), Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div., Th.M.), and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Ph.D., Biblical Studies). Mitch is the author of two books–The Gospel is for Christians (2010) and Behold Our Sovereign God (2012).

Tim came to Kosmosdale Baptist Church in the summer of 2009. He has served the church in a variety of roles, including teaching Sunday School, directing the children’s church program, and leading the Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting. On July 28, 2013, the church voted to bring him on as an associate pastor.
Tim holds degrees from Northland Baptist Bible College (B.A.) and Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div.). He is currently working on a Ph.D. in Church History at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. His historical interests include the Early Church, the Protestant Reformation, and English Christianity (especially Puritanism and Evangelicalism).
When not studying or working, Tim enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, golfing, and soccer. He and his wife, Jennifer, have three children–Ryan, Zachary, and Adam.
Mike Senior joined Kosmosdale in 1973. He has served our church in a variety of roles, including Sunday School teacher, deacon, song leader, and elder. Mike is actively involved in lay care and visitation activities at our church. He is passionate about seeing the gospel preached, sinners converted, and believers grounded in the truths of God’s Word.
Mike serves Christ alongside his wife Joyce. Mike and Joyce have three grown children.
Ronnie first started attending Kosmosdale in 1964. Through the ministry of the church he came to Christ around 1973 and has been serving the Lord here ever since. Ronnie has been involved in nearly every aspect of the church’s ministry over the years. Roughly ten years after coming to know the Lord, he was elected as a deacon. In the early 2000s, Kosmosdale called Ronnie to transition from a deacon to an elder. He continues to serve us in this capacity, and he also serves as our church treasurer. Ronnie has a heart to see our church reach the community with the gospel of Jesus Christ. That passion is manifested in a weekly Bible study he leads at GE where he works and in our church visitation efforts.
In his free time Ronnie enjoys trap shooting and bluegrass music. He and his wife, Rainy, have two grown children.
