Artist and NTS alumnus Brian Timmer was commissioned by a generous donor to paint a beautiful Kansas thunderstorm during the 2018 Hugh C. Benner Preachers Conference at NTS.

In January 2019, the original painting was hung outside the president’s office. The plaque reads as follows:

“Hope in Troubled Times”
By Brian Timmer
NTS Alumnus – Class of 2011

This oil-on-canvas painting features golden sunlight filtering through a storm-torn sky to a Kansas farmer’s rain-soaked field.

Lovingly sponsored by a friend of the Seminary who believes in preparing faithful and effective ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Commissioned by the NTS Center for Pastoral Leadership as a part of the Hugh C. Benner Preacher’s conference, “Preaching Hope in Troubled times,” October 2018.

The artist has made limited edition signed prints of the piece, Hope in Troubled Times, available for purchase on his website. 50% of profits from print sales will be given back to NTS to support students!
