Every post I write flows from my personal connection to Jesus. My deepest desire is that the revelations I discover, whether they are found in an airplane seat or a prayer room, would stir up your own flame. God is moving in our generation and my blood is boiling.

t’s the ability of Jesus to break the laws of nature that really blows our minds. Let me be real with you: I’m unashamedly fascinated with miracles. They aren’t the end of themselves, absolutely. The One they point to far surpasses their value because this One is the God of the Universe who spoke life into existence. Miracles are just this One continuing to rewrite it’s laws.

Dry Ground.

Dry Ground.

Last year I had the opportunity to drive through Nevada, Southern California, and Arizona. While I did find the surroundings beautiful, I definitely would not want to try farming out there. The ground could have all the right nutrients that it needs for vegetation but without water, few plants of value can grow. All living things need water to live.

A Few Thoughts on the D-word | March 2020

A lot of news articles, a lot of briefings, a lot of fear, and, more than we realize, a lot of--I'm going to say it--disappointment has flooded our minds over the last few weeks. The Lord took me on a journey a few nights ago and I want to share it with you today.It...

WATCH

I love connecting in different ways! Writing has been my go-to method of communication but videography is becoming more than a side-hobby. Recently, I’ve been working on more videos and I’m excited to share them with you! You can find videos of miraculous healings, sights from international travels, Vlogs about various topics, and Spoken Words on my YouTube Channel. You can watch my latest videos below. Subscribe and share with anyone who would be blessed!

Tim’s videos are refreshing to my spirit because I’m always reminded of what really matters: relationship with Jesus, and loving people well. I’m also encouraged to step into my own God-given identity and creativity.

THE FAMILY

Since 2018, I’ve had the privilege to build family connections in Northern Uganda. Some might say they are “ministry connections” or “missions opportunities” but I say family because no other word describes the way I feel about them. They have truly adopted me and I am proud to be their son! 

There are various ways that you can get involved if you would like to. The best option would be to contact me through email and share your heart. I’m a sucker for coffee chats, so if you live in the area, don’t be surprised if I ask for an hour of your time!

Below are just two ways you can have a meaningful impact on the family. 

Join me in supporting Pastor Jackson

Join me in supporting Pastor Jackson

Monthly

Pastor Jackson lives in Kotido and is a dear friend of Pastor Joseph, my spiritual father. I guess that makes him my Uncle! He is an incredible pastor, caring father, and wonderful host.

The church he started is small but incredibly lively. When I visited in January 2020 I discovered that instead of being able to devote his time to evangelizing the unreached people around him, he was earning several dollars a day by hauling charcoal.

I’ve decide to partner with him and his church financially. Would you consider joining me? I will pass any contribution to Pastor Joseph and he will send it to Jackson. You can use the button below to donate.

Build the kingdom house

Build the kingdom house

In June of 2018,  I learned that the Kingdom Family in Adwari, Uganda, had started building a house of prayer. I was curious and excited to see what would happen. Only a year later, I found myself praying Amos 9 over the partially laid foundation and I felt the Lord speak to me and say, “This is why I’ve brought you here. Focus on it.”

In January of 2020, I took a small amount of funds and joined hands with my family. As we laid bricks and planted pillars with many workers and volunteers, I sensed the Lord’s delight. Truly he is building something beautiful on the ashes of the past. I’m thrilled to play a small part in it.

If you would like to join me in sowing into the build of a prayer house, please contact me. I will be taking a small team this summer to continue this project and do whatever we can to bless our family.

SERVE LANCASTER

I’ve been a staff at Gateway House of Prayer since the spring of 2019. I started as a Night Watch Staff, praying and worshiping over our region for twenty plus hours in the early morning hours. God began to burden my heart for his church and lost sheep here. While I love going on mission internationally, right now I’ve been called to primarily serve locally.

I would love to come alongside you and find out how we can see the power of God manifested in our backyards and city streets. Contact me if you would like more information on our weekly Altar Gathering or our monthly outreach initiative.
