050: Honoring Tim Uhls (The Student Ministry Podcast)

050: Honoring Tim Uhls (The Student Ministry Podcast)

February 11, 2020

Episode 50 of The Student Ministry Podcast is a little different. In December 2019, the world lost a great youth pastor named Tim Uhls. For those who have been longtime listeners, you may remember Tim from episode 36. Tim was also Steve's youth pastor. In an effort to honor Tim and also cope, Steve reached out to several other people who were in Tim's youth group. This episode is dedicated to the vast impact Tim had on multiple generations over his 30+ years in ministry. There is no way to gather all of the stories, but we hope these few give you a good idea of who Tim was and also encourages you to also have an impact on those God places in your care. We cannot wait until the day when you get to meet Tim in heaven, witness his amazing heart and booming laughter, and we all get to worship God together for eternity!
