Meet Our Pastor:
 Rev. Dr. Timothy Fisher

Since July 1997, I've had the pleasure of serving as lead pastor of Walkersville Community Church.  Prior to this position, I served as an associate pastor of a church in Frederick for almost seven years.

What is unusual about my journey is that I grew up in Walkersville and graduated from Walkersville High School in 1984.  My wife, Beth, has a similar journey, and graduated from WHS.  This was helpful in that I didn't have to learn the dynamics of a new community.  

Beth and I have four grown children- Stephen, Jason, Chloe and Karis.  Stephen and his wife, Liz, live locally and are parents to our grandson, S.J. (Stephen Jr.).  Jason and his wife, Megan, also live locally.  Our daughter, Chloe, lives in Albany, GA, and our daughter, Karis, lives in New Braunfels, Texas.    

In addition to my work at the church, I teach an online course in Biblical Interpretation for the Directed Study Program of the Brethren in Christ Church, U. S.  I love teaching anything related to the Bible. This love of teaching and Biblical study led me to pursue and earn a D.Min. degree from Evangel Theological Seminary (Harrisonburg, VA) in 2013 and a Ph.D. from Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary (Evansville, IN) in 2018.  

I love to read broadly, exercise, root for Washington D.C. sports teams and spend quality time with family and friends.  Enough about me, I'd like to meet you!  Please be sure to introduce yourself when you come to the church for the first time!

Sincerely in Christ,

Ministry Coordinator: Jess McClain 

Hi and welcome to our website! I have been the Ministry Coordinator here at WCC since March 2022. Having taught French at a local high school for ten years, God called me to make a change and I accepted the challenge! I love my job and I love people. I became a born-again Christian in my early twenties and I am still a mess, but I'm doing life with God in the drivers seat and He gifts me Grace daily!

In 2018, I graduated summa cum laude from Hood College with a Master's degree in Curriculum & Instruction. My job is to support any and all ministry at WCC. I work with our amazing village of volunteers, small group leaders, meal ministry, trustees, worship team, and much more! I  also direct  and help implement our Kids Church program at WCC. I love  creating  new lessons, and working with our amazing teachers and kids! Ministry is constantly changing and evolving but our message remains the same: There is Good News! Come and rest at the feet of the King!

I have a 2 year old daughter, Luca, a canine gentle giant named Charlie and I'm married to the love of my life Andrew, who serves as one of our talented worship leaders at WCC. I love to travel the world, read, shop, and socialize! Please introduce yourself and let's do coffee/tea sometime! I'd love to get to know you!
