When the Lord called Tim and his wife to C, Tim thought it was going to be for one year. Almost 20 later, Tim loves to smile at how the Lord’s plans were so different than his own, as he kept them in Asia for all that time. Tim has lived in 3 different cities in C during those years, teaching university students, building many relationships, and sharing the joy within him. Tim has served in a variety of leadership positions while in C where his jobs have included supervising teachers, casting vision, serving with local leaders, training and equipping new global workers, and mentoring younger colleagues. He graduated from Calvin College with a degree in Communications, and has a master’s degree in Education from Lee University. Tim and Renee and their family live in West Michigan, where they serve with Barnabas International, a global non-profit agency which provides pastoral care to global workers around the world.
