Reverend Timothy Lovejoy is the reverend of The First Church of Springfield, the local protestant church that The Simpsons and most of their friends attend.  Although Lovejoy initially was a caring minister, he became apathetic after constant annoyances by Ned Flanders.  He is married to the town gossip, Helen, and has a rarely seen daughter Jessica.
