About the author
Tim holds a Master of Divinity from Regent College and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Carey Theological College. He is author of “Plunging into the Kingdom Way” that describes four trajectories Grandview Church moved towards including practices of radical hospitality, shared life among cultures, seeking justice for the least and confession. His forthcoming book, “Humility and Hope: Forming Christian Communities in a Secular Age,” is due out in the fall of 2020. In addition to this work with CML, Tim is also now serving as Director of City Gate Leadership Forum, mentoring pastors and churches toward a parish, kingdom vision. The organization has a goal to help churches and communities pursue systemic change through creation of housing, food security and other responses needed in particular Vancouver neighbourhoods.
Tim lives with his wife Mary, one of three sons and a daughter-in-law, a beautiful grandson and many mealtime guests. He and Mary have lived with over 38 people in the last 27 years and this has become a way of life for them. He is passionate about widening our imagination for how we can be the church in a way that brings hope and transformation among both persons and societal structures in particular neighborhoods.
