The Renewed Life Ministries Team
Renewed Life Ministries depends on both staff and volunteers alike. We would not be able to help the men, families, and communities that we have been privileged to serve without our team. These people serve week in and week out to make a difference that will not be forgotten.
Tim Anderson, Executive Director, plays a pivotal role in guiding our organization towards its mission of transforming lives and bringing hope to those in need. His passion for making a difference in the lives of others is evidenced in his involvement as a member of the Advisory Board of Adult Teen Challenge, Murfreesboro, along with his serving as a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist in the state of Tennessee. This certification reflects his expertise and qualifications in providing guidance and support to those in need, further showcasing his commitment to helping others.
Tim’s incredible journey of overcoming adversity and addiction through Jesus Christ, has led him to become a published author. His book, “Life of an Addict: My Journey to Freedom,” (where he has recently added a workbook entitled “Journey to Freedom: Work “Through” Book,”) serves as an inspiring testament to his personal growth and resilience. Through his writing, Tim, who has an abundance of incredible faith, shares his experiences and offers hope to those who may be facing similar challenges and helps them see the path of God for their own lives, leading them to freedom.
Tim’s dedication to service is further exemplified as a member of the Board of Directors at Family Worship Center in Murfreesboro, TN., where he also serves as the Director of Men’s Ministry. Tim and his wife, Nikki (who is also involved in ministry) have three adult children leading their own lives of impact and purpose.
