Bishop Andrew Cozzens, Chairman of the Board for the National Eucharistic Congress said, “The Board of Directors for the NEC are deeply grateful to Tim for how he has launched this movement as our founding CEO.

His profound leadership qualities, coupled with an innovative approach to parish ministry, are exactly what Amazing Parish needs as we enter a new chapter of growth and impact. I am confident that under Tim’s stewardship, we will see an unprecedented flourishing of parish life, deeply rooted in the mission to cultivate communities that are alive with faith and eager to embrace the Great Commission.”
