Favorite Bible Verse

“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’ The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.” – Romans 8:15-17

Training Ground

Tim and his wife, Laura, lived a combined 22 years in the District of Columbia, most recently working together under Pastor Mark Batterson at National Community Church, in Washington, DC, where Tim served as Social Media Strategist and Laura as Small Groups Pastor. Their heart for faith and work and business-as-mission led them to leave the District and move their family to Northwest Arkansas in August 2018.

Faith

Yes. Tim has a heart for social justice and advocacy, both at home and abroad, and believes that even though we get in the way from time to time, the message of Christ is relevant to all people everywhere.
