Our Family

Tim and Sarah have been married since 2003 and have five amazing children. The Lord has led them to serve at Haven of Grace Seminary P1 just south of the city of Bacolod on the island of Negros in the Philippines.

For fourteen years, the Valiantes served in local church ministries here in the United States. For the first seven years, they ministered at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Newark, Delaware where Tim served as an Assistant Pastor overseeing Youth and Administration. Then Tim served as Senior Pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Millville, Pennsylvania from 2010-2017.

Tim has received a bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Studies from Northland Baptist Bible College, a master’s degree in Theological Studies from Calvary¬† Baptist Theological Seminary and a doctor of ministry degree from Clarks Summit University.

The Valiantes are excited to have had a part in the launch of this seminary in June 2019, and trust that the Lord will continue to bless the ministry of equipping and training national pastors in the Philippines for many years to come.
