Meet Our Team

Paris and Vicki-10.8.jpg

Pastor Paris & Vicki Pasch

Pastor Paris and Vicki met as Highschool sweethearts and eventually married in 1975.  They’ve lived in the Hastings community all their lives and have raised two adult children and 3 grandsons all whom love Jesus Christ.  Paris and Vicki are partners in business and ministry along with being best friends.


By 2018, Paris and Vicki had been part of 3 church plants, one of which was an awesome church called Christ’s Family Church that flourished and grew to over 500 in attendance on a weekend.  God had more for them and they found themselves in the wonderful place of planting another local church work.  After nearly four decades in ministry they feel God has refreshed their original calling to reach their community over their whole life with everything they have at their disposal.  Their constant goal is to reveal who God truly is to those who are often disappointed by organized religion. 

Today they proudly serve

The Journey Church as lead pastor and administrator.

Pastor Ben & Luann Tims

My family moved to Hastings, MN in the early 1960’s when I was a young boy.  From that time on, I have lived and worked here for the majority of my life.  


I married the love of my life, Luann, in 1980.  Together, we serve our church in the prayer team ministry.  I consider her to be God’s gift to me, and a wonderful partner in the ministry.  We have two adult children and three precious grandchildren.   Although our children do not live in Hastings, Luann and I call this home.


I have served the Lord in numerous ways over many years, including men’s ministry, prayer ministry, jail ministry, Sunday School teacher, worship ministry, and other speaking engagements.  In 2016, I became a licensed minister and was ordained in 2018.


My desire is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible.  I want others to know, love and serve the same Jesus as I do.  Bottom line, I love Jesus and I love people!


I am honored to be able to minister alongside of Pastor Paris Pasch.  He is a blessing in my life as my Pastor and friend.


Luann and I are so grateful and blessed to be a part of The Journey Church family, serving as a teaching pastor and prayer ministers.

Administrative Manager

I am very blessed that God has given me the opportunity to serve him at The Journey.  I have 4 kids and we joined the Journey family in 2024.  I have served in churches for the past 20+ years in the capacity of worship director and youth and family ministry.  I’m excited for my role as administrator at The Journey to help lead and support God’s work in Hastings and beyond.  


I grew up on a farm in southern Minnesota.  After high school I earned my bachelor's degree in music and journalism at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.  After serving as a musician and teaching music for many years, I decided to make a career change so I began grad school and am currently working on earning my masters in counseling.  


My kids and I enjoy the outdoors and everything on the water for fun.  We were pickle ball nerds before it was cool!  I enjoy hunting and fishing, gardening, and being a full time mom.  


God has shown me His goodness and faithfulness time and time again throughout my life.  He is always there for us and never fails, so it is with a grateful heart that I serve Him at The Journey Church.  It was yet another prayer He answered for a good church home at the Journey for my family and I, and to serve alongside an amazing ministry team to grow God’s kingdom.
