At just 5 years of age, Bro. Tim D. Pruitt gave his heart to God and—in his own words—“has never taken it back!” He gave himself to the ministry when he was 15 years old and has been preaching the gospel for over 50 years. At the age of 17, he founded Evening Light Tabernacle in 1972 and was officially elected as Pastor in 1978. In his youth, he attended the meetings of Rev. William Branham, whose ministry has mentored and shaped his own.
Accepting the commission to go into all of the world and preach the Gospel, Bro. Tim has traveled to many states in America as well as foreign nations to strengthen the faith of believers everywhere. Recognizing the special needs of the youth, Bro. Tim Pruitt (along with other supporting ministers) started the Louisiana Spring Youth Camp in 1987 and serves as camp director.
He was married to Sis. Karen in 1975 until she went home to her eternal reward in 2021. God blessed their union with four children: Timothy, Lydia, Esther and Bethany. Their children and their spouses are all part of the church family of Evening Light Tabernacle.
