Tim was born and raised in Northwest Arkansas. He spent most of his life in the construction industry specializing in flooring. Sharron grew up in North Carolina and was the daughter of a preacher. She graduated from Hobe Sound Bible College with a BA in Elementary Education and taught for a few years in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.
Together Tim and Sharron drove a truck for a division of FedEx for ten years. It was during this time they were called into full-time ministry. They came off the road and pastored a small church in rural South Carolina. They primarily worked with a group of teenagers counseling, teaching, and discipling them. It was during that time Tim and Sharron met Ed and Heather Durham and heard about the need for workers in Slovakia. Their hearts were stirred, and they began to pray for God to send workers to help at the New Horizons Transition Center in Slovakia. God answered that prayer by calling them!
Sharron will work with the young ladies in the transition home by teaching them cooking and cleaning skills as well as discipling them through Bible studies. Tim will do maintenance on the property as well as work to evangelize the gypsy community nearby. Both Tim and Sharron will pursue building relationships with local orphanages in an effort to make a difference in the lives of the children before they are eighteen and sent out to make their own way in the world.
Philosophy of Ministry
Tim and Sharron have a passion to reach the lost and specifically to work with vulnerable children. They have a strong desire to share the message of hope with the people of Slovakia. They are committed to building relationships, sharing the gospel, and then discipling those that accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
A Note from the Teeds
Thank you to those who have already committed to pray for us! We are so excited about what God is doing to prepare us for this ministry! For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
