Come to me all of you who are weary and burdened,
Timothy's Ministry first began in December 2002 as God's answer to my prayer after I cried out to God on my knees the day before my son Tim's birthday (Tim passed away the year before). I remember saying, "Help me, God, if only I could have had the simple joy of baking Tim a cake, what I would have given." Click on "Stories" in the top navigation bar to read how it all began.

Tim's House Hours:
Purpose: To provide a safe, loving, and encouraging place for people struggling with homelessness to gather and experience the love of God through community. There is prayer, conversation, sharing, Bible Study, delicious food, and support with housing, shelters, I.D.s, medical/mental/dental health referrals, and the many other challenges that homelessness brings.
I often refer to Tim's House as "God's heartbeat" because there is such love in this place. People love coming together and always say there is no place like Tim's House and I know this is because of the presence and love of God in our midst! Everyone helps each other at Tim's House and we have become a family where newcomers are always welcome and embraced!
