WWOB around the US

Ministry | Friday, August 31st, 2018

2018 has been such an amazing and fulfilling year already! We started out in the Philippines and India but have done extensive ministry in the US since then!

We started with many local churches: NW Gospel Church, Vancouver, WA; Destiny Christian Fellowship, Happy Valley, OR; Imago Dei, Portland, OR; Scappoose Foursquare, Scappoose, OR; Epikos Church, Bend, OR; as well as a powerful local conference, Worship Northwest in Salem, OR.

Then we were honored to venture out onto the east coast to Athens, GA w Pastor Morris Sapp at Crossroads Community Church. We had a powerful time of teaching and impartation with their team and the whole congregation! Got them singing and flowing in new and beautiful ways! Then on to Coweta, GA w our good friends, Pastor Rahul Patrick and Sipra Singh! In Georgia we were able to forge some strong ties in worship and teaching that will be continued over the years!

The next month I was delighted to go to Massachusetts for my first time and minister in Rehoboth, MA w Pastor Bob Bernier! What a delight to find a thriving congregation there, open to God’s presence, hearing His voice, and seeing Him move! It was wonderful to watch their response to the teaching as well as the presence of Jesus in our midst! We hope to return soon and continue building up the worship community there!

Since then we have continued to minister locally in many churches (the summer is usually a lot slower in ministry so this was a unique year for us):

Living Waters Fellowship, Tillamook, OR; New and Living Way Church, Longview, WA; Mt. Park Church, Lake Oswego, OR; Covenant Christian Community, The Dalles, OR; True Life Fellowship, Beaverton, OR; Evergreen Christian Center, Hillsboro, OR; ending the summer with a powerful conference called the Heart of the Psalmist in Longview, WA with our great friend, Mike Herron and many other friends! Each session began with strong and sweet worship, interlaced with Psalms beautifully set to music by master songwriter, Mike Herron! His teachings on the Psalms are unmatched for prophetic insights and challenges! We learned so much about the prayerbook of the Bible! and then to worship through those insights was so powerful! I was honored to lead worship as well as teach a couple of practical workshops on ‘Words Matter’ and ‘The Prophetic Song’. The musicians were some of the best in the NW, with Traci Andrusko violin; Maryl Smith flute; Scott Bettis bass; Todd White synth; Nathan Salo drums; Chris harp; me on cello; and Rebecca Chadd as our secret weapon vocalist! As a special bonus, Pastor Todd Beal led a worship set that was freeing, declaring God’s power and love over the region and culminating in sweet spontaneity! All in all it was a beautiful time in God’s presence, listening to His voice in song and declaring His love to this generation! I will never read the Psalms the same way again! Thanks Mike! :)

Now we are looking at a lot of fall ministry with a trip up to Helena Montana at Mountain Family Fellowship in September. I am returning to teach my Rediscovering Worship class at Seattle Bible College in October. In November, we return to the beautiful people in Kamchatka, Russia for a conference and teaching at their Discipleship School.

We have been so blessed to know and minister and worship with so many wonderful and amazing people around this area and the world! Thank you for your prayers and support and encouragement! We continue by the grace of God, His calling on our lives, and the many friends who pray and love on us so much! Blessings in the days to come!

Tim and Maryl
