Reverend Tim Halloran grew up in a Christian home on a dairy farm in Talcott, W.Va. When he was 21 years old, he felt the call to go into the ministry. After completing Candidacy and Licensing Programs, Tim served the six-point charge in Williamsburg, W.Va., for two months for a pastor who retired early. In June of 1980 Tim moved to Montgomery, W.Va., where he stayed five years, leading two small community churches at Powellton and Deepwater. He earned a teaching degree at West Virginia Institute of Technology.
While there, Tim met Reva, his future wife. They got married in 1985 before moving to North Carolina to start graduate school at Duke University. But after a year of classes and pastoring, he felt overloaded. Both Tim and Reva decided to spend the next two years earning master's degrees as full-time students before spending four years at the United Methodist Temple in Beckley, W.Va.
From Beckley, the Halloran family, which included Hannah and Cameron by that time, moved to Huntington, W.Va., in 1992. During Tim’s 16 years there, Cross Roads United Methodist Church grew tremendously.
The Hallorans came to Suncrest in 2008. Reva is now a teacher at University High School, where she is sponsor of the Key Club. Hannah is a student and Cameron is working in construction, both in Morgantown.
