Reverend Timothy Carentz Sr joined the International Ministry Network in May 2017. He hails from Queens, New York, & enlisted into the U.S. Air Force in July 1994, at the age of 17. During his 23-year career, Tim served with distinct honor as a critical care specialist, a first responder to the Pentagon on 9/11, cared for ~25,000 critically wounded warriors, & will now be retiring as a Chief Master Sgt in 2017. Tim received his calling to Germany as a child & into ministry while on a 7-year assignment in Germany in 2009.
As a wounded warrior, Tim’s passion continues to focus on Peer-Led Support-Groups for those combating Invisible Wounds, planting home churches, preaching, & teaching. His plan is to return to Germany with his family, stand up home churches, teach, & open a Christ-Focused Military Resiliency Center for the ~75,000 American military families serving in & transitioning through Germany.
The ‘Kaiserslautern Military Community’ is surrounded by 10 military installations, contains the largest settlement of Americans outside of the U.S.A., is the transient location for service members deploying to/from the combat zone, & Landstuhl is the primary medical hub for those ill/wounded across Europe, Africa, & the Middle East.
Tim earned his Master of Divinity (MDiv) via Liberty University & is currently working toward a Doctorate in Ministry (DMin) via Assemblies of God Theological Seminary. The focus of his studies includes: intercultural communications, diversity, biblical studies, & resiliency. He has been serving as a credentialed AG minister since 2012.
