Tim A. McTavish

Trustee Spotlight

Tim A. McTavish was elected to the CCU Board of Trustees in 2009, during the tenure of then-President Bill Armstrong and at the outset of the initial phases of the Lakewood campus redevelopment effort. He was elected Chair of the Board of Trustees in June 2020, succeeding long-time trustee and friend of CCU, Gary Armstrong.

McTavish founded InsureMe in 1993, an entrepreneurial venture that connected insurance agents with high-intent prospects shopping for insurance. McTavish credits the success of that platform to dedicating the business to Christ while implementing basic biblical principles in the workplace. During his time leading the company, InsureMe was ranked in the “Top 25 Great Places to Work in America” and was also named the most philanthropic small business in Colorado.

In 2008, McTavish sold InsureMe to Bankrate, a public company. Since then, McTavish has been involved as an investor and advisor to several businesses in Colorado and abroad. He has also taught courses in entrepreneurship and personal financial planning in the School of Business and Leadership in CCU's College of Undergraduate Studies, where he was named affiliate faculty member of the year in 2018.

A "faithful steward wanna-be," McTavish's mission is to model a life of generosity and good and faithful stewardship of the relationships and resources God has entrusted to him in a way that inspires people to live well within their means, give generously to life-changing causes, and to fall in love with Jesus and experience abundant life in Him. McTavish has a passion for creating positive work environments and encouraging business owners to recognize their stewardship roles and to effectively live out their faith in the workplace.

In addition to a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in management from Pacific Union College, McTavish holds an MBA from Colorado Christian University. He and his wife, Pam, reside in Parker, Colo. They have three children, David ’18, Katie ’20, and Laura ’23. The McTavish family attends Newday Christian Seventh-day Adventist Church where they have been actively involved for many years.
