He moved to Vancouver in 2012, where his heart for God grew in parallel with his pursuit of creativity in film, photo, and music, specifically getting involved in worship. Now acting as Creative Director for Worship Central in Canada as well as leading worship as his local church in Vancouver, Tim spends much of his time seeking how creativity of all forms can be used to build community, shape culture, and ultimately point people to Jesus, desiring to simply be available to the task that God has set in front of him as a movement of worship sweeps across this city.
