"Have fun...do your best...let Jesus shine through you." That's been our Roehl Family Motto for many years...and it describes the heart of our family.
Tim and Shirley have been husband and wife and ministry team since 1980. They met and fell in love at Vennard College. Our first pastorate was at Grace Chapel Evangelical Church in Milwaukee, WI where they served from 1980-1990. During those years their daughters Aubrey and Elise were born.
We moved to the Twin Cities metro area in 1990 and planted ChristLife Evangelical Church in in the north suburbs. We loved ten years of ministry leading ChristLife. During those years Aubrey and Elise attended Spring Lake Park schools. Shirley became the Office Administrator for Evangelical Church Missions, serving our denomination as well as our home church.
In 2000 we became missionaries with Church Resource Ministries (CRM). Tim led a CRM team and works with a wide variety of leaders, churches and organizations. Tim's also been a denominational leader with The Evangelical Church and The Wesleyan Church.
Aubrey met Dylan Does at Vennard College and married him the day she graduated from Vennard on May 6, 2006. They have two wonderful sons (our grandsons!)--Ian, born in 2007 and Xavier, born in 2010. They do a great job as the pastoral family at the Yakima Evangelical Church in Yakima, WA.
Elise graduated from Vennard College in 2008. She works at a very cool coffee shop in Oskaloosa, IA and leads the youth ministry at our Oskaloosa Evangelical Church. She is commissioned in The Evangelical Church for Youth Ministries.
Shirley's Dad Dale Miller made his home with us for several years. He is a godly man with a fun sense of humor and a keen follower of the news.
