Ordained Missionary, Assemblies of God (NYN)

Chief hails from Queens, New York, and enlisted into the U.S. Air Force in July 1994 at the age of 17 and retired at the rank of Chief Master Sergeant in February 2018. During his 23-year career, he served with distinct honor as a Cardiopulmonary Therapist with an emphasis in trauma/critical care and the Critical Care Air Transport Team. During his career, Chief was a first responder to the Pentagon on 9/11, cared for ~25,000 critically wounded/ill warriors, and received his calling into ministry (2009) while stationed in Germany.

As a wounded warrior, Chief’s passion continues to focus on Peer-Led Support-Groups for those combatting Invisible Wounds via The Kaiserslautern Military Resiliency Center; a grass roots ministry for the 75,000 American military families serving in & transitioning through Germany. Since opening Rhema Café in June 2019, Chief forged a solid partnership with www.TheWarriorsJourney.org and 30 local churches and helping organizations across the Kaiserslautern Military Community.

Pastor Tim is an ordained minister with Assemblies of God's New York Network. He earned his Master of Divinity (MDiv) via Liberty University & his Doctorate in Ministry (DMin cand.) via Assemblies of God Theological Seminary.

Perfecto adipiscing ex mei, sit amet idque no. Vim omnium graecis ponderum ea, cu has vero epicuri apeirian, no vim esse persius vituperata. In est diceret disputationi, et nec integre delenit sententiae, ad vix sumo rebum. Possim vituperatoribus nam ne, nec cibo choro mentitum ex. An rebum reque eruditi has, pro integre posidonium an.

 

At lorem munere mediocritatem quo, eos no officiis interesset. Quem iusto scaevola an sed, cibo exerci pro in. Cu vivendum delicata vis, duo alii laboramus scribentur no, nonumes reprimique per ne.
