Father Tim Hepburn
A native of Atlanta, Father Timothy Hepburn is a gifted musician who grew up as a parishioner at St. Jude the Apostle Church in Sandy Springs. He earned a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Auburn University in Alabama.
While at Auburn, he experienced an awakening of faith, realizing that designing buildings was less important than building the kingdom of God. In 1988, he entered St. Meinrad Seminary in Indiana.
Father Hepburn was ordained a priest in 1993. He has been active in teen and young adult ministries, priestly formation, speaking, preaching and teaching. He was the first archdiocesan pastor of St. Gerard Majella Church in Fort Oglethorpe and then was pastor at St. Gabriel Church, Fayetteville. In 2000, he served as the inaugural chaplain of Blessed Trinity High School in Roswell. In between ministry assignments at Emory University and Georgia Tech, he pursued graduate study in the new evangelization and received his licentiate in sacred theology from the Angelicum through Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit, Michigan.
In 2010 he became the director of the office of vocations for the Archdiocese of Atlanta. He was named pastor of St. Michael Church, Gainesville, in 2018.
