Tim was raised in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. His journey with God started out in a Christian reform school in the heart of southern Georgia. It was there that he encountered some authentic Christian people who really cared, leading him to experience the redemptive power of Christ’s love.
Tim later went on to college and received a degree in Biblical Studies. As someone who always had a pioneering spirit, he began to focus his entrepreneurial skills and sensibilities toward starting new kingdom ventures. Over the last 20 years, by God’s grace, he helped plant two churches in both urban and suburban contexts, started a campus ministry, an inner city mentor program for at-risk youth, as well as several businesses.
Most recently, Tim co-authored a book with Alan Hirsch entitled The Permanent Revolution where they outline the movemental significance of the five-fold ministries of apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds and teachers. For the past 3 years Tim has been coaching and consulting planters, church leaders and training organizations on how to become more movemental in their approach to ministry and leadership. After this extended season of investing in other leaders, Tim and his wife Tiffany have been called by God to re-enter the field to plant churches again.
Tiffany grew up in Montgomery, AL where she was actively involved in mentoring teenagers and adults in under-resourced urban neighborhoods. After receiving her degree in social work, she began focusing her experience and training around ministering to women as well as empowering women in their callings for ministry.
Tiffany is passionate about efforts related to social justice and sustainability. In recent years, she has volunteered with Hope Pregnancy Center as a Mom2Mom mentor, while running her own start-up business called GreenHouse: Natural Products, Healthy People.
Tim and Tiffany value leading together as a team and, after 13 years of marriage, have learned how to draw from each others unique giftings to meet the diverse challenges of pioneering leadership.
