Tim Beavis was born and raised in beautiful Cornwall in the southwest of England. He came to know Jesus as his personal Savior at the age of 14.
After studying his Bachelors in Business and Hospitality Management in Birmingham, UK, Tim worked with Marriott Hotels in London. It was during this time that the Lord led him to the USA to serve as an Urban Youth worker in Camden, NJ.
After a year and a half in Camden, Tim moved to Chicago to study at Moody Theological Seminary. While at Moody Tim met his lovely wife Lisa and they were married in May 2001.
Tim holds degrees from Birmingham City University (UK), Moody Theological Seminary, and a doctorate from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He has served as a Church Planter, Pastor and ministry leadership coach. He has also participated on the executive boards of several ministries.
Lisa grew up as a Missionary Kid in the Republic of Panama but has lived in Illinois since the end of High School. She studied Spanish at the University of Wisconsin, Parkside and earned her MDiv from Moody. She loves working with other women and sharing with them the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Tim loves reading, kayaking, drinking coffee, and cooking up a storm - when he gets the chance (just so long as he doesn't have to do the dishes!) Lisa enjoys taking bike rides, drawing, and reading. She also speaks Spanish.
They have four chilren, Elizabeth, Emily and Benjamin and Sophia.
