Tim Cole

I was born in Venezuela, South America, where my folks were missionaries, and raised with my 4 brothers in the Andes Mountains.  I love my wife, I love my 3 sons, I love my 2 granddaughters (and their mother), I love restoring classic mustangs, and I love studying, understanding, and teaching God’s word. I love to help people apply God’s truth about His forgiveness and mercy and hope into the very real, messy stubborn wounds that are found everywhere in the lives of broken people like us. 

In God’s word we come face to face with Jesus.  Face to face with forgiveness and hope. He challenges us to be gripped by eternity, to love God with all of our heart, mind and strength and to love our neighbor, regardless of who that neighbor might be and what broken down condition he might be in, in the same way we love ourselves.
