Tim is a SoCal native who has spent the last 20 years in far-off lands like Tennessee, Missouri, and Alabama. During college he discovered the boundless grace of Jesus. He then scoured the southeast and divested Chattanooga of its greatest beauty: Melissa. After ten years of ministry in an SEC college town, the Liens recently joined Pacific Crossroad’s vision to plant churches throughout Los Angeles. Tim and Melissa enjoy hiking, biking, traveling, and playing outdoors with their four children. And Korean BBQ. They also imagine serene, quiet places when the caffeine begins to wear off.
