Name: Tim Bond
Title: Executive Director
1. Tell us a little about your family.
I’ve been married to my amazing wife, Pam, for nearly 32 years (she’s the administrative assistant to the principal at Brown Co. High School). We have two adult children, Hannah, who is a French teacher at Brown Co. High School and is married to Robert Newlin. Hannah and Robert have two children, Nola and Roan. Our youngest is Trent, who works in financial services in Evansville and is married to Adrienne.
2. Tell us a bit about your education and professional background.
I’m a graduate of Cincinnati Christian University and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I’ve also taken graduate coursework at Emmanuel Seminary. I spent about 4 years in construction management and more than 18 years in pastoral work prior to joining Clarity’s staff.
3. What is your favorite thing about working at Clarity?
The chance to be involved in a really important work with a HUGE variety of different kinds of people who all come together to serve a purpose bigger than themselves.
4. What hobbies do you have outside of work?
I love spending time with my family, reading and walking/hiking (Brown Co. where I live is a great place for that!).
5. What is one thing you are just absolutely no good at doing?
I am the world’s worst at car maintenance and repair. My father-in-law is an airplane mechanic and can fix anything that goes wrong with any sort of engine. When I attempt to work on any motor it is guaranteed to never run again and I’m going to wind up with multiple scrapes, bruises and busted knuckles, a wounded ego and thrown tools. It’s just not pretty!
6. If you could eat one food for the rest of your life and not get sick of it, what would it be?
I could never get sick of White Castle hamburgers!
7. Be honest, what song or band is your guilty pleasure?
I feel no guilt about it, but Jimi Hendrix.
8. What is the best advice anyone has ever given you?
A farmer at a rural church I served once told me “Don’t tear down fences until you know why they’re there.” That has been great advice in leadership. You shouldn’t make rash decisions to change something until you are completely sure you know why things are the way they currently are.
