/ -- On September 6, 2018, the Board of Directors of The Christian and Missionary Alliance (the C&MA, The Alliance) unanimously affirmed Dr. Timothy (Tim) Meier as the new vice president for the Development area of ministry, effective October 10, 2018. Development is responsible for the communications, funding, and marketing functions at the U.S. C&MA National Office. It produces Alliance Life magazine, Alliance video, resources for the Missions Emphasis and Great Commission Day campaigns, and many other print and digital communications materials to equip Alliance churches, church leaders, and laypeople to engage more deeply in God's work through The Alliance.
Tim earned his undergraduate degree in Christian ministries at Indiana Wesleyan University. He then earned a master of divinity and a doctor of ministry in leadership in the global context at Alliance Theological Seminary. He currently serves as the director of Envision, a ministry of The Alliance that identifies and develops missional leaders through short-term trips, internships, leadership development, and ministry opportunities. There are approximately 70 site leaders in more than 20 urban-based Envision sites throughout the world, including the United States.
Prior to leading Envision, Tim served with his wife, Rachel, in youth and worship ministries for five years at Mendham Hills Community Church (C&MA) in Chester, New Jersey. They then ministered for four years as Alliance international workers in France.
Tim will conclude his leadership with Envision at the end of September. Wisely, he has chosen to take a brief period of time for soul renewal and to be with his family. He plans to begin his new role October 10.
"I am truly humbled to join the Development team in leadership for this next season," notes Tim. "I believe The Alliance is poised for forward momentum, healthy change, and a moment in our history that will pave the way for future generations of new churches, new types of engagement, and aggressive expansion all for the Kingdom of Jesus."
Tim and Rachel have two sons and live in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
