ztimsbio125 Dr. Zachery Tims Bio

As the host of 102 Gospel Jamz, Pastor Zachery Tims plays the best gospel music in Orlando. Listeners can hear gospel music from Kirk Franklin, Donald Lawrence and The Tri-City Singers, The Clark Sisters, Donnie McClurkin, Marvin Sapp, J Moss and more.

Dr. Zachery Tims, Jr. is the Senior Pastor, CEO and founder of New Destiny Christian Center (NDCC). The focus of the ministry is to exemplify the love of Jesus Christ with a passion for helping people. His ministry operates in demonstration of the five-fold ministry gifts and dynamic illustrative preaching that empowers a membership of 8,000+ people. The message of “new destiny” conveys a life changing concept that brings divine reversal in the lives of a people hungry for God and ready for change. It speaks to the heart of man, with a balance of practical principles for living a successful and purpose driven life free of sin, sickness, worry, and debt.

In 1996, Dr. Tims envisioned a ministry that transcends beyond the normal religious traditions of man. Being sent from his Baltimore church, Pastor Tims with his beautiful wife, co-Pastor, Riva Tims and family moved to Orlando, Florida. In 1996 with only six members, they birthed the New Destiny Christian Center in a non-traditional church setting with a multi-cultural mission. Through his passion to touch lives, the church has been a blessing to countless thousands through its major outreach crusades. Several times a year food, clothing, personal toiletries, haircuts, medical screening, and a job fair, and toys for children at Christmas, completes a day of bringing volunteers and church members together to serve needy families, all with a personal touch through their non-profit ministry, Operation Love Outreach, Inc. Billboards throughout the city promote the church as a “Family church meeting family needs.” In so doing, the church has also blessed a family with a 3-bedroom home and given down payment assistance for others. They have also given away as many as 50 cars to faithful members. Each Sunday, their Hope for Destiny Ministry busses in homeless and sheltered families who receive a hot meal after services.

Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, young Zach surrounded himself with the wrong crowd. Influenced by criminal activities and drugs he began a lifestyle that would try to plague his identity in a negative way. It led him into attempted murder, incarceration, and drug addiction. A Baltimore judge labeled him a “menace to society.” It seemed that young Zach was sentenced to a life of corruption. In his book “Free to be me,” he describes how the wrong labels of society can affect ones identity and destiny. God had a greater plan for Zach Tims’ destiny that led him towards a vision to build a 34,000 sq. ft., 3-story Youth Center that offers programs of Recreation, Inspiration and Education to thousands of youth in the community.

After Dr. Tims was miraculously saved, instantly delivered from drug addiction, and called into ministry, he determined to make his young life count by simultaneously earning two Bachelor’s degrees, in Accounting from Towson State University, and another in Theology from Maranatha Bible College, in Baltimore, Maryland. He now holds two honorary Doctoral degrees from Vision International University and St. Thomas Christian College for the tremendous work he has accomplished in ministry.

Dr. Tims has written his story, in a new book release, “It’s Never Too Late,” through Charisma House Publications. The Sunday Worship Services and messages are seen worldwide in over 100 million homes daily through radio and television broadcast. Dr. Tims is a well sought after guest speaker and often a special guest or host on TBN’s “Praise the Lord” on the Trinity Broadcasting Network.

Dr. Zachery Tims is a driven man of God. He is a leader of leaders, an avid reality preacher and teacher who has become a trailblazer to many other young preachers and Pastors. He balances his ministry life as the dedicated and proud father of four beautiful children, Zoelle, Zachery III, Zahria and Zion.

    This is shocking news and truly a tragedy. Pastor Zachary was someone that travelled with my bother and I had the pleasure to fly with him on a trip to Nashville. We travelled to the NRB over 10 years ago. He left an impression on me of someone that truly cared for people, no matter who you were or who was your family. i liked that about him, he brought laughter and happiness out of people. We were on the flight and we all sat together and he kept us laughing the entire time! Zachary, was a man that love under privileged children and he made a difference in our community. He will be missed! My heart goes out to his family and especially to his children.

    It doesn’t matter how you start life, it’s how you finish. Dr. Zachery Tims Jr. had a purpose created in him (a Gift from God) like Jesus, they were Blessed to Be a Blessing to everyone in need, glorifying God in his purpose driven life. Dr. Zachery Tims Jr. finished Blessed, he finished with the Lord. Always remember his teachings, I will miss him greatly.

    The media needs to remember, words hurt, remember his children (his family).
