Hello!  Thanks for making your way to my blog.  I’m Tim: husband, father, and youth pastor.

Tim’s BioIMG_8463

Emily and I were married in 2012, and we quickly transplanted from Southern California to North Idaho, thanks to God’s leading in our lives.  After 2 1/2 years as a youth pastor in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, I am now the high school pastor at Faith Church in Allentown, Pennsylvania. And Emily is a stay-at-home wonder-mom to our awesome son.  She also has a fantastic blog at www.EmilyCGardner.com, where she is known for her honesty about life, creative crafts, and delicious recipes.

If you were to boil my passion for ministry down to one statement, it would be this: I love walking alongside students and families in their journey of discovering what it looks like to place their hope and trust in the Living God, seeing them experience the grace found in Christ.
