Tim Woodroof

headshot-timwoodroofTim Woodroof has preached for almost thirty years—in Lincoln, NE; Beaverton, OR; and—most recently—Nashville, TN.  He follows an almost genetic call to ministry: both his father and grandfather served churches of Christ for many decades.

He and his wife, Julie, have been married for 38 years and have three children: Sarah (34), James (30), and Jonathan (28).

Writing has been a particular calling for Tim.  Among his books are Walk This Way (a study of the Beatitudes), A Church that Flies (a thought piece on the future of churches of Christ), and A Distant Presence (an historical novel of Paul and the Philippian church). His most recent book (A Spirit for the Rest of Us) looks at the role of the Holy Spirit in contemporary Christian living.

Tim served the Otter Creek church for ten years. On his tenth anniversary there, he announced his transition away from local church work to pursue writing, speaking, consulting, and interim ministry in a more focused way.

He enjoys reading, backpacking, and fly-fishing. In more disciplined periods, he runs and plays racquetball.
