"Real-Life Solutions to Real-Life Problems"
Motivator & Teacher
Marriage and Family Conferences
Radio Host / Author
A gifted communicator, Tim Childers is a true professional with a no-frills, no-nonsense approach. His approach - and his accent - have been favorably compared with television talk show host, Dr. Phil.
Tim brings to the table ten years of sales and almost thirty years of full-time ministry experience. He is insightful, animated, humorous, entertaining, and practical. Tim connects with audiences. He speaks, teaches, and motivates not to tickle ears but to get results - to see lives changed.
Tim relates to his audience. He relates to people - whatever circumstances they may be facing.
Tim is very transparent. He has experienced personal tragedy and triumph ... and everything in between.
Tim Childers is a "real" guy who will connect with your crowd. One person described him as "down to earth, to the point, and easy to listen to and understand."
Tim spent many years struggling to work for God and to live the Christian life. Then one day God revealed a better way of living that comes through dying!
Discovering that dying to self and experiencing what it means for Christ to live in and through him was the most liberating event of Tim's life. Through this one truth, God has delivered Tim from depression and much more. These triumphs are infused into every message he delivers.
Tim delivers real-life solutions to real-life problems.

ONE: The Marriage Event
ONE Day that Could Change Your Marriage Forever
Tim and Debbie Childers' unique approach to a marriage conference begins with Friday evening dinner or dessert theatre - event sponsor provides the food and Tim and Debbie present a dramatic, musical comedy and multimedia presentation depicting their journey through 36 years of marriage. This unique blend of teaching, technology, and drama is at times hilarious and, at times, heart piercing. Most importantly, it creatively illustrates what can happen when a husband and wife become ONE in Christ.
Saturday's schedule includes two morning and two afternoon sessions led by both Tim and Debbie. The Childers' "tag team"-style presentation combined with their powerful, Bible based content keeps things interesting and keeps the audience riveted through the day. If time permits, Tim and Debbie will lead a candid, interactive question and answer session. The conference concludes with a commitment ceremony reinforcing "ONENESS" in marriage. Each couple will receive a memento to commemorate the ceremony.

I was moved, my heat was touched, something happened in my spirit. A deep connection, a refreshing, a reaffirmation of truths alraedy planted and solid within me. Those descriptions don't do justice to the last couple of days. I guess I'll just say that God used you way more and way better than I coul dhave hoped, both for our church and for me.

What a blessing it was - having the two of you team teach a class on 'How to Study the bible'! From Debbie's introduction of God's Word as His love letter to us, all the way through Tim's sharing his favorite - and now mine! - fre web resource, it was an amazing opportunity to expand what I knew about how to study God's Word. What I learned from you will continue to be a blessing to me as long as I'm able to study my Bible - go forth and share this with others!
"How to Study the Bible Conference" attendee
Bobby and I were on that humdrum path of a lukewarm Christian, afraid to ripple the waters but knowing in our hearts that there had to be something else to our walk. God set the plan in motion when we were called to teach. When we struggled with how to do that, He sent you our way, and through your boldness and witness, He allowed our eyes, ears and hearts to open and hear the truth. e are experiencing a joy now that we never had before and because of this we can testify even more to God's greatness. In recent days we have had the privilege to watch others grow in the same way. Because of your faithfulness and the dsire to speak the truth, lives are changing every day.
Thank you for being sensitive to the Holy Spirit and writing this Bible study. It is wonderful and so helpful to me. You know I get discouraged sometimes. I always remember how you have always taught us that the devil schemes are made just for us. Bo, I don't know how peope that don't know Jesus get through the day. I am so thankful for you and how easy you make it to understand the scriptures. I can hear your voice as I study. You talk my language.
