Tim Geiger is Executive Director for Harvest USA. He has been involved with the ministry of HARVEST USA since 1997. Initially, he came for ministry, battling—and losing—a twenty-year struggle with homosexuality and pornography. All that while, he had been actively involved in ministry with his church,but was leading a double life—on the surface, he was the obedient, “faithful” Christian—but under the surface, he felt completely out of control and discouraged because he was unable to reconcile the truth of Scripture with the pain and fear in his heart.
After years of knowing about Christ, Tim at last began to understand Christ and his love. Through God’s grace, Tim began to understand that it was the deceitfulness and rebelliousness of his heart that was leading him to sin, and that there was hope for change—not in what he could do, but in who JesusChrist is and what he has done. This began a process of surrender and trust in Christ that has been at times, excruciating and exposing, but also beautiful beyond belief. Tim’s mission is to share this same hope and truth in Jesus Christ with others who want freedom from the bonds of sexual sin, in order that they, too, might be able to walk in repentance.
Tim did his undergraduate work at Community College of Philadelphia and has a Master of Divinity Degree from Westminster Theological Seminary. He is ordained as a Teaching Elder in the Presbyterian Church in America. Other than Harvest USA, Tim’s professional experience comes from careers with the Internal Revenue Service and the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals. Tim and his wife, Susan, live in the Philadelphia area and have one daughter.
