Tim & Jenn Adams (Regional Missionaries to Southeast Asia, Project #42.10031)
Ministry Focus: Tim and Jenn will be walking alongside the Church of God leaders in Asia and the Pacific as regional missionaries, with a primary focus on the ten countries where the Church of God is present in Southeast Asia. Many of these Church of God assemblies are on the verge of leadership change. They will be providing resources and connections for these assemblies and walking alongside them through these seasons of change.
Tim and Jenn both grew up in faith-filled homes with families highly involved in their local churches. After a year in Bible college, Tim still felt unsure of the direction for his life, so he joined a discipleship and missions program that led him on his first trip to Southeast Asia. God then called Tim into ministry, where he served in facilities management, administration, and eventually teaching in an inductive Bible study program. He served and led in that ministry for nearly 13 years.
Jenn took a gap year after high school with the hope of doing some travel and missions. A short-term missions experience took her on her first trip to Southeast Asia. She experienced a call into ministry after this trip. She has been working in discipleship, administration, bookkeeping, and as part of the local leadership team.
Together, Tim and Jenn have participated in and led short-term missions teams, especially in Southeast Asia. And their four young children have participated as well, including a Christmas outreach to Myanmar in 2019 where they and three other families provided a platform for their kids to reach out with the love of Jesus. After nearly twenty years of ministry and missions mobilization, Tim and Jenn felt led to take a sabbatical. They were able to seek the Lord about their future, no strings attached.
After much prayer and with a longstanding desire to move to Southeast Asia, Tim and Jenn felt now was the opportune time to pursue that dream. It seemed, through God’s guidance, that Global Strategy would be a good fit for their family in “walking alongside the local church, globally.” The Adams family will be serving alongside the Church of God in Asia and the Pacific through Global Strategy and Church of God Ministries, in partnership with Canadian Church of God Ministries.
