Assistant Director of Operations
Tim serves with the IAFR Service Team in Minneapolis. Tim serve in ways that strengthen every ministry of IAFR.
Tim found that his early interest in pastoring and his degree in communication could be used to advocate for people globally. This broadening perspective eventually led to opportunities to serve internationally among refugees and asylum seekers.
Tim has worked among the forcibly displaced since 2007. From 2007 to 2013, he helped start Il Soggiorno, a refugee integration and education center in Rome, Italy. In 2013 he and his family moved to England to support community transformation projects in the diverse immigrant community of Southall.
Prior to leaving for Italy, Tim served as an interim associate pastor for a year, reflecting a strong commitment to the local church. It is this intersection of his deep love for the local church and his passion for forcibly displaced people that brought him to work with IAFR.
