Tim Seo | Senior Pastor

Pastor Tim was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. He grew up playing the piano, and when he wasn’t playing music, he was playing sports, especially with the rugby or wrestling team. He attended Queen’s University and graduated with a Bachelors of Music in piano performance.

Upon receiving his call into ministry, he moved to Southern California to attend Fuller Theological Seminary. While attending Fuller, he began serving at a local church where he met the girl of his dreams, his wife, Monica. After graduating with his Masters in Divinity, he served as a pastor until he received a new call to join the military as an active duty Navy Chaplain and as a chaplain in the Coast Guard. He then transitioned into the Navy reserves and has served as a Battalion Chaplain with the Marines, and currently serves as the Reserve Chaplain for District 17 with the US Coast Guard.

Pastor Tim and Monica have four beautiful children, Joshua, Elise, Daniel and Isaac, and currently live in Petaluma. He enjoys staying active and working out, as well as drinking a good cup of coffee, but his absolute favorite thing to do is to eat. Monica is a school nurse and loves gardening, going for walks and basking in the sun. She has a heart for women’s ministry and loves connecting over a nice cup of tea.

Pastor Tim and his family are excited to be part of The Community Church and growing a community where people are excited about Jesus and are being transformed as they encounter Christ in their lives. Jeremiah 29:11 has always been a powerful anthem in his life, and he can’t wait to see God’s plan unfolding in The Community Church family!
