Adam Scholes - Assistant Minister
Adam joined St Tim's in 2010. He has particularly responsibility for youth work and outreach in the church. He has a passion to see people engaging with the Bible and seeing how the Christian faith is relevant to their lives. Originally from Bedford, Adam played football at academy level for Luton Town FC. Adam leads the youth work at the church. He is married to Victoria, and he enjoys running, reading, and following the fortunes (or lack thereof!) of Luton Town FC. Adam claims to be one of God's chosen people because his paternal grandmother was Jewish!
