Dr. Timothy Smith

tim_newWater from Rock Ministries, Founder and Executive Director, Rev. Dr. Timothy Smith, has dedicated much of his life to helping people grow in intimacy with God and experiencing spiritual renewal. During his 35 years of ministering to people from various backgrounds as an ordained minister, chaplain (hospital, hospice, and prison) spiritual director, adjunct seminary professor, and retreat leader, Tim has experienced firsthand the renewing power of Jesus Christ. And his many experiences of renewal have taught him the need for connecting an intelligent biblical faith to a warm, heart-felt devotion to God. We must be people of head and heart, together.

Thus, in his teaching and ministry, Tim focuses on laying a biblical foundation for faith, along with training in the spiritual practices that Christ and his Church have pursued. In seeking renewal for our day, Tim draws upon the disciplines and vitality that shape the various streams of Christian devotion and welcomes all who seek to know God better.

Tim’s daily prayer for the Spirit’s renewing power is taken from the Apostle Paul:

I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:16-19
