Nurses Christian Fellowship is pleased to announce the appointment of Timothy Lin as NCF Student Ministries Director beginning August 15, 2016.
Tim believes wholeheartedly in the ministry of NCF. “I am excited to join the NCF team!” Tim said. “We are dreaming together about how God can expand the influence of NCF in more nursing schools, and we can’t wait to see what God will do!”
“Thrilled doesn’t even begin to describe how delighted we are to work with Tim as the Student Ministries Director,” said Kathy Schoonover-Shoffner, NCF National Director. “Tim has a strong history of developing nursing students in the Central Region. He brings expertise and knowledge that will grow NCF student ministry and move us forward into the future!”
Tim is working with NCF in addition to his role as an InterVarsity Senior Area Director supervising campus ministry in Kansas.
Tim appreciates NCF for its razor-sharp focus on preparing nursing students to integrate faith and vocation so they are ready to make a difference in the world as Christian nurses. He sees that NCF offers students a clear and compelling vision for how to love God and serve others by offering competent, holistic care in their nursing practice.
“I am stepping into this new role because I long for more nursing students to have the opportunity to place their faith in Jesus Christ and to recognize the natural ways their faith impacts their vocation.” Tim said. “I long for more nursing schools to host safe spaces where students can see for themselves how Jesus is not only the great physician but the good nurse—for them, for their classmates, and for their patients. And I long for more nurses to practice living out their faith while in nursing school so they are prepared to become lifelong kingdom people in healthcare.”
“Please join us in thanking God for providing Tim to lead NCF ministry with nursing students and nurse educators!” Kathy said. “Tim is an experienced, visionary leader. We are excited about what lies ahead as Tim embraces this new role.”
