From Pastor Tim Kooiman
I grew up in Edgerton, MN, which is a small town in rural Minnesota. It was a place the provided a solid foundation for my life as it was filled with family and friends, good churches and schools, and also people who worked hard and loved life.
The Lord touched my heart when I was 16 and it was the first time I came face to face with the reality of God revealing himself in the Bible. Since then, God has grown in me a love for the Bible and a love to live in relationship with people. He has given me a passion as well as opportunity to walk with people from different ages and demographics: youth, elderly, those in prison (through a prison church), and those working average, everyday jobs. It always amazes me how God, through Jesus Christ, reaches into our everyday lives!
In my spare time, I love riding motorcycle, fishing, hiking, camping, watching movies and so many other things. I enjoy working with my hands and being outside, as I worked several years for a general contractor.
God has been good to me and I look forward to what he has in store.
