Tim Timmons, a nationally-known Christian singer and songwriter, will perform for Union College’s Family Worship on Friday, February 15, at 7:30 p.m.
In 2001, Timmons was given five years to live after being diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer. In an interview with Guideposts, he credits his wife for his motivation to “live life as though he was going to be healed.” He says he does not want his cancer to be his story and instead lives to inspire others to live with Jesus. Almost 18 years later, Timmons is a Grammy and Dove Award nominated songwriter, as well as the founder of 10,000 MINUTES.
The 10,000 MINUTES movement is about the church learning to be the church wherever they are—not just doing church 80 minutes each week. On the website, he shares updates of his cancer journey as well as weekly experiments on how to practically live like Jesus is present.
Timmons released his first album Grateful, in 2008 although it wasn’t until his 2013 release of Cast My Cares that his career as a singer took off. Since 2013 he has released three more albums including a kids album Who I Am, and most recently the single “I Belong” featuring Amy Grant. The song he co-wrote for MercyMe “Even If” was nominated for a Grammy and two Dove Awards.
The College View Seventh-day Adventist Church is located at the corner of 48th and Prescott on the Union College campus. Doors open at 7:00 and the concert will be free and open to the public.
