Tim has been a CRM Staff Member since 2013 and is a part of the Core Community of the Order of Imago Christi, serving as a spiritual formation coach and spiritual director, shepherding the souls of pastors, missionaries, and Christian leaders.
He has over 33 years of pastoral experience, serving in a variety of capacities, most recently having served for ten years as the Pastor of Spiritual Formation at LifeSpring Covenant Church in Loveland, CO. In addition, he is a certified life coach (www.FlightPathCoaching.com) and a certified spiritual director, completing training at the C. John Weborg Center for Spiritual Direction at North Park Theological Seminary in 2009. Tim is the Team Leader of the Midwest Covenant Conference Spiritual Directors Network, and a member of the Evangelical Spiritual Directors Association and the Association of Covenant Spiritual Directors.
As a spiritual director, Tim helps people listen with the Spirit to the story of the already-present activity of God in their lives in order to cultivate a deeper connection with Christ and to discern his movements in their life. Having spent most of his adult life as a pastor, he enjoys working with pastors and other church leaders. Tim helps develop spiritual formation resources, coaches Christian leaders and consults with churches, facilitates Spiritual Formation Discovery events, and leads personal spiritual retreats. Tim graduated from Baylor University (B.A.) and Dallas Theological Seminary (Th.M.). He and his wife of 40 years, Jill, have two adult children. He enjoys golf and hiking in the Colorado mountains. He resides in Loveland, CO.
In 2014, Tim was diagnosed with Stage 3B melanoma in the lymph nodes on his neck and face. Following surgery and bio-chemotherapy, he has remained cancer-free since. He learned, in a very personal way, of the healing touch of God and the powerful prayers of God’s people.
"All of my adult life, I have been passionate about and engaged in helping people grow spiritually, believing that God’s greatest commitment to believers is to conform them to the image of Christ (Gal. 4:19; Phil. 1:6; Col. 1:28-29). Having lived the majority of my faith life out of an intellectual knowledge of God, some seventeen years ago I was experiencing the poverty of an almost exclusively head-knowledge of God. Out of desperation to have a more experiential relationship with God, I began searching for, and God brought me in contact with a number of people who could help me grow into, a more intimate relationship with Him. I long to help others experience more of Christ and a deepening love relationship with God, as well.”
