While at Trevecca, he has received various recognitions, including Faculty Member of the Year, Teaching Excellence Award, and the McClurkan Award. He is the author of numerous periodical articles, cantata narrations, and contributor to several texts as well as the author of several books, including So What Now?—Celebrating My Identity in Christ, Discovering the Old Testament: Story and Faith, Vital Beginnings, Never Alone, Philippians Lectio Divina, and Dancing Solo: Finding Your Own Rhythm in a Performance-Driven World.

He regularly teaches Old Testament classes at European Nazarene College in Busingen, Germany, and has also taught classes in Russia, Kazakhstan, Jordan and Kosovo.
Tim’s deepest passion is to glorify the Lord through his preaching and teaching ministry and to challenge the people of God to recognize and celebrate life as the great gift from God and to share that gift with their world. He particularly counts it a great privilege to share in ministry on a day-to-day basis with university students as they prepare to serve as leaders and servants in the church of Jesus Christ!
