The Bachleitner's

Hello, my name is Timothy and this is my family. We are the James House. All of us together are the Staff. Each one of us has an important role, EVEN the babies!  I have my roles of vision casting, resource gathering, and one on one mentoring. Kristin has the role of providing a sweet mothers touch, and our children naturally bring their love and joy to those we serve.

Kristin and I have been working with youth even prior to our marriage. We met in high school where Kristin shared the Gospel with me, and immediately after my conversion I knew I was called to help fatherless young people and within a year I set off to intern with a youth ministry in Washington state called Youth Dynamics.  Since then we have worked with several ministries gaining the wisdom and skills needed to bring an answer to the problems youth face today. 

Currently, I am the pastor of South Shore Church (, a chaplain with the Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Department (, a firefighter with the Ripon Fire Department and the founder of The James House.
