But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
— Acts 1:8 (esv)

My name is Tim Bentley and I have been married to my high school sweetheart (Missy) for 32 years. We have 4 children (3 girls and 1 boy). Our two oldest daughters (age 27 and age 25) are married to our godly son-in-laws. Our youngest daughter (age 23) will be graduating from college this year. Our son (age 18) will be graduating from Burke Middle College this year. We have one wonderful grandson and are awaiting the birth of a granddaughter in May. 

My wife and I love to minister to people and disciple people. We have lived outside the U.S. for 21 years in Africa, Europe, and Asia. We are thankful for how the Lord gave us many opportunities to live and work with some great people in these different cultures. We are excited to meet and minister to all those He puts in our path here at Bridge 42.

We feel that some of our gifts are leadership, encouragement, teaching, mercy, discernment and hospitality.  We desire to disciple all people, helping them to have healthy relationships first with the Lord, and then with others.

Our family loves the outdoors. We have camped, hiked, climbed and swum in some of the most beautiful places in the world. We are in constant awe of the Lord and how He has allowed us to see His greatness through His creatures and creation.
