Tim’s empathy for his audience, passion for Scripture, and thoughtful approach combine to create writing and speaking that can connect with almost any group. He has a true gift for leading conversation that will make you see the beauty and depth of life through new eyes.

— Dave Blanchard, Founder of Praxis
My first encounter with Tim was chapter 1 of Veneer. I opened the book to do some light reading before going to sleep and I ended up reading way into the night. He captured in words, what my heart had been trying to say for years. I knew we had to bring him in to speak. My first face to face encounter with Tim was much the same. Both him as a person and the message he had to share couldn’t have connected with us more thoroughly. We were blessed.

— Adam Weber, Lead Pastor Embrace Church Sioux Falls, South Dakota

So, if you want me to speak at your event? Or, if you want to take a week off of preaching? Fill out the form and inquire.
