Dr. Timothy Fisher

Senior Pastor & Elder

Dr. Fisher (Tim) holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Lancaster Bible College, Masters of Divinity and Theology from Capital Bible Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. He is married to his high school sweetheart, Lisa, and together they have three children, Laura, Stephanie, and Joseph. Tim and Lisa also love playing with their two grandkids. Tim loves everything outdoors – rides on his motorcycle, hiking in the woods, playing with his bees, hunting, fishing, gardening, golf, baseball and walks with his dog.

While attending Capital Bible Seminary, Tim and Lisa began serving at Immanuel Bible Church in Springfield, VA. They spent nineteen years in Student Ministry at Immanuel before serving seven years as the Lead Pastor of Grace Bible Church in Lorton, VA. By the grace of God and with the help of Immanuel, they transformed the small struggling church into a healthy thriving church before moving to Parkway Bible Church.

You can listen to a Sunday Sermon to get an idea of a typical Sunday at Parkway Bible Church. Tim has a passion for preaching the Bible as it was written book by book and working with couples to build healthy marriages and families.

Jim Hays

Board Chair & Elder

In order of importance, Jim is, a follower of Jesus and a Christian Hedonist (you’ll have to ask him about that last part), a husband to Ann, a father to Sarah, James, and Philip; and father-in-law to Michael. He is a grandfather to Katelyn and Nicholas; a son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, nephew, and cousin to too many to name. In addition, Jim is a friend to more people than he deserves, and fewer than he should be, an employer and colleague for those in his small consulting company, an Army brat, and retired from the Army. Jim confesses that he has yet to correctly live out the above priorities.

Jim’s ministry passions are teaching, and sharing the Gospel, and serving the least of these through the ministry of Living Water International—sharing a cup of water in Jesus’ name. His hope and desire are to be used by God as God pursues the lost and matures His followers. And Jim desperately hopes that God grows him in that process as well.

Daniel Watson


Daniel was born and raised in Texas, relocated to Virginia for college, and has remained in the area for the last 16 years. Daniel comes from a large family and has three children of his own along with his wife, Amy. Because of Daniel's father and his heart for unity within the larger body of believers, Daniel grew up fellowshipping with Baptists, Methodists, Pentecostals, and even the stray Anglican or Catholic. The largest influences on Daniel's pursuit of the knowledge of God are similarly diverse: J.I. Packer, A.W. Tozer, C.S. Lewis, Brother Lawrence, and "the puritans". Daniel works as an attorney to make a living, but knowing God and making Him known is all that matters in life.

Lisa Fisher


Lisa Fisher is grateful for the home she was raised in that taught her early of the God she loves. However, it wasn’t until her teenage years that she truly believed the gospel and her faith became her own. She married Tim Fisher, her high school sweetheart, and together they have had the honor of raising three now-adult children who are pursuing a life marked by love for Jesus. Her life has been marked by teaching, mentoring, and hospitality. She enjoys cooking, gardening, bike riding, lunches with friends, and Monday night dates with her husband.

Erika McKellop


Erika was raised in Northern Virginia and grew to know the Lord through the discipleship of her parents and grandparents. She went away to Appalachian State University for college where she met her husband, Daniel. They moved back to Virginia and joined Parkway in 2017.

Erika is a school library media specialist who loves all things reading and research. She has a heart for reaching middle school kids with the truth of who they are in Christ. When not at school, Erika loves coaching soccer, cross stitching, visiting her family farm in the mountains, eating all the delicious meals Daniel makes, and watching her daughter grow up.
