Senior Leadership Team

Tim Howells

Tim Howells

Senior Pastor

Originally from Aberdare in South Wales, Tim spent many years living and working in Bournemouth. Tim previously worked in the professional football market for over 20 years, working with premiership and football league clubs and players, an environment which he describes as fantastic to work in and often surreal.

Tim moved to Carmarthen with his Wife Karen and two boys Daniel and Jacob back in 2010 and his passion and motivation is Jesus and His Kingdom. Tim’s responsibility at Bethel is to bring vision, preaching and teaching as well as develop external church relationships.

Tim loves days out with the family, all sports, music, reading and preaching, and is a big Manchester City fan!
