Growing up out west in Corvallis, Oregon, Tim went on to earn a BS in Agriculture from Oregon State University- Go Beavers! He loves to be out in nature, and always enjoys gardening when the opportunity arrives. Later on he would meet his wife Judy in graduate school in South Carolina, both of them getting their MA's in Intercultural Studies. In 1999, they put their masters degrees into practice by relocating to a restricted access country to engage in church planting, discipleship training, English teaching, and leading marriage enrichment classes. Arriving at PRISM in September of 2020, Tim and Judy enjoy caring for international residents at the Hospitality Houses, evangelism, discipleship, leading Discovery Bible Studies, and campus ministry. They have two daughters, Priscilla and Mikaela. The Shines love Asian food and bubble tea, enjoying sports and group board/card games, and delight in watching movies with family & friends.
