Tim’s passion is to envision and to coach churches and church planters through the framework of a Kingdom of God vision, and a Kingdom of God worldview. The Kingdom Dream is what grips Tim, and what he wants to spend the rest of his life casting a vision for. From this foundation of a Kingdom of God worldview, Tim coaches churches and church plants on how to walk out ‘deeper’ community and ‘incarnational’ mission. Tim longs to see movements of missional communities all over the world that reflect the Kingdom Dream!
“The most important coaching experience you can sign up for! Tim has a great ability to communicate the message of the Kingdom of God that will bring you to a place of making life changing decisions.” Duane Norleen, Director, Youth With a Mission, Calgary.
“The Vineyard Prairie Regional Team meetings have provided many hours of fun, discussion, prayer, and munching together. Elf and I have grown to expect wisdom and well rounded sparring of vision, ideas, procedures, and policies with Tim and Esther. Their input into our lives and into the life of Cornerstone Vineyard is our joy.” David and Elf Hamm – pastors of Cornerstone Vineyard in Winkler, Manitoba, Canada
