New Pastoral Ministry for Tim and Shirley

In his role as a coach and Denominational Leader, Tim has been serving LifePrint Church in the southwest part of the Twin Cities over the last year.  The church has gone through a very difficult time since last September after a leadership crisis. In February, Tim and Shirley accepted the assignment to be the part time interim senior pastoral couple for the church. We were not expecting this ministry change, but see the Lord’s hand in all of this. The church is about 40 miles away from our home. Tim is getting back into the rhythm of being a pastor again. God has been helping the church to heal and regain a sense of hope and momentum.  Pray for us as we serve and lead the good people at LifePrint…we have big challenges but a bigger God!

What does this new season of ministry mean for Tim and Shirley’s ministry? Shirley will continue to serve as the office administrator at Evangelical Church Missions and editor of “The Challenge,” our denominational magazine.  Tim has the blessing of CRM and Evangelical Church leaders to focus time at LifePrint.  He will cut back his ministry travels while honoring his previous commitments, and seek God’s wisdom to balance his time well.

Tim’s Book is Released, Many Radio Interviews

Tim’s new book, “The Day That Changed Forever” was released in mid February.  He has done over 20 radio interviews with local stations and national networks all over the country...each an interesting opportunity to talk about the book and point people to Jesus.  We also found out that the book went to a second printing!  We are thankful for good feedback about the book.

Tim and LeRoy’s Spring Training Adventure!Tim’s “big present” of the yearfrom his family was to go to Florida to see the Minnesota Twins at spring training!  He went with his college roomie and longtime friend LeRoy Anderson, who is also a missionary, over his birthday March 4th-8th.  We saw four games in four days in four different stadiums…what a great time enjoying baseball together!
