Meet our Leadership

Tim Senn

Pastor-Teacher

Tim has been a member of the Pastoral team at BCLR since 1997, beginning in Student Ministries, then transitioning into Adult Ministries in June 2010. He received his B.A. from Clemson University in 1993 and his M.Div. from The Master’s Seminary in 1997. While in college, God graciously opened his spiritual eyes at the age of 19 to realize his need to be clothed in the righteousness of Christ, rather than in his own ‘filthy rags’ of self-righteousness. Since that time, his single passion has been to know Christ more and to make Him known to others. Tim and his wife, Hannah, have five children and enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and riding bikes together.

Paul Hamline

Pastor of Equipping and Missions

Paul has been a member of BCLR since 2002 and an elder since 2005, having previously pastored in Missouri and overseas in East Africa. Paul received his BS in Religion from Southwest Baptist University in 1978, his M.Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1982, and his Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling from The Master’s College in 2010. He is also a certified counselor with the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors. The Lord blessed Paul with parents who understood God’s love for the church. God used his parents’ faithfulness to the church and the faithfulness of those who taught him God’s Word to draw Paul to Himself at an early age. It was through the regular teaching and preaching of God’s Word that the Lord opened his eyes to his sinfulness and need for repentance and salvation in Jesus Christ. The Lord’s lovingkindnesses and compassions toward Paul have created within him a passion for God and His Glory.

Paul and his wife Gail enjoy studying God’s Word, reading, hiking, bike riding, traveling and being with family. They have two children and eight grandchildren.

Keith Phillips

Pastor of Worship

KEITH PHILLIPS joined the staff in 2014. Prior to his time at BCLR, Keith served as a pastor and elder at churches in Alabama, Mississippi, and Ohio. He received his B.M.E. from Jacksonville State University in 2001, his M.Div. from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in 2004, his M.M. from East Carolina University in 2007, and is currently completing his D.M.A. from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music as well as pursuing a D.Min. from Reformed Theological Seminary. Through God’s provision of these experiences and educational opportunities, Keith’s desire is to shepherd well the flock of God, promoting greater growth in godliness among the body and fostering an ever maturing, biblical understanding of corporate worship, or our meeting with God.

Keith married his beautiful bride, Stephanie, in 2002 and they have a daughter, Kara. They enjoy spending time together as a family, whether in ministry, traveling (to the beach especially), fishing and enjoying the outdoors in general, or watching ECU Pirate football.

Douglas Allison

Student Ministries Pastor

DOUGLAS ALLISON joined BCLR as the Pastor to Students in July of 2016. Douglas grew up at BCLR and the Lord saved him when he was twelve. The Lord opened his eyes to his own need for forgiveness and reconciliation to God while a teacher was explaining the Great Commission from Matthew 28.  He received his B. A. in 2010 and his M. A. in 2012, both from The University of Central Arkansas. Douglas served as youth intern at BCLR for 5 years before moving to attend seminary. He received his MDiv from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY in 2015. Douglas and Cammie have been married since 2009 and have four boys: Kenneth, Graham, Matthew and Levi. They love to read, go for walks and play sports.
