TIM SHAUGHNESSY

Tim Shaughnessy, age 33, was born and raised in the West Texas city of El Paso where he currently lives with his wife of 7 years and their three young children. Tim has worked as a Firefighter/ Paramedic for the city of El Paso for the last 9 years. He was raised a Roman Catholic but by God’s grace, he was saved out of that false religion when he was a teenager. He now has a desire to reach people with the gospel and strives to live his life in accordance with God’s word. Recently, in the summer of 2016, he started a Podcast called Semper Reformanda Radio as a means of proclaiming the truth of God’s word. He attends a non-denominational church in El Paso but identifies as a Reformed Baptist adhering to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith. He has not had any formal training in ministry but has assisted in leading and teaching in various aspects in the past. Tim is a presuppositionalist and adheres to the Clarkian method of apologetics.

PATRICK HINES

Patrick Hines is a native of Cincinnati, Ohio. He is a graduate of Ohio University with a degree in business and worked eleven years as a computer programmer and analyst for several major Ohio companies prior to pursuing his call to ministry. While attending Ohio University, he met and later married his wife of 21 years, Amy. Patrick earned his Master of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary in 2008. He served for four years as Assistant Pastor at Grace Bible Presbyterian Church in Cincinnati where he had served six years as a ruling elder prior to ordination. Patrick and his family moved to Kingsport in June of 2012 to answer a call to the pulpit at Bridwell Heights Presbyterian Church PCA. The sermons are accessible at the church’s website:

Patrick’s ministry is characterized by his deep love and passion for Christ, the church, and the lost: by his faithfulness to the clear articulation of the gospel and ardent defense of biblical Christianity and the reformed faith: and by his commitments to children’s ministry, pro-life ministries, engagement of the culture and the individual unbeliever, and Reformation theology.

Patrick has a heart for children who are unchurched and have never heard the gospel and has organized and led local Good News Club ministries through Child Evangelism Fellowship since 2010. He is a pro-life advocate, activist, and spokesperson, defending the unborn and the sanctity of life in public protest, televised interviews, and published articles. His reputation as a spokesperson for the Reformation and its great doctrines grows, and he has been featured in radio broadcasts and conferences.

  CARLOS MONTIJO   In 2008, Carlos Montijo, raised as a Roman Catholic, was saved from God's wrath and came out of the Church of Rome. After some turbulent years of King James Onlyism, cult-like groups, and lukewarm churches, God used the ministries of faithful men such as Paul Washer, G. Craige Lewis, James White, Gordon Clark, and his local church to bring balance and sound doctrine to his life, including the historic truths of the Protestant Reformation. His love for the Word of God, apologetics, and church history prompted him and his friend Tim Shaughnessy to start Semper Reformanda Radio. Carlos is a software engineer, married to the woman of his dreams, and has four beautiful kids.

He traces his love for the work of Gordon Clark and John Robbins back nearly 20 years to the time when a friend gave him a copy of Horatius Bonar's book  The Everlasting Righteousness , published by The Trinity Foundation.
