Tim and Holly were introduced to BEMA by their friend and World Racer, Jenni Feicht. (Jenni’s pastor in college was none other than Marty Solomon!) Tim and Holly were having conversations with Jenni about how they wanted to approach the Text differently. Tim and Holly were opening up to new and different perspectives. They were even looking for some way to study the Bible with a Jewish perspective. Jenni introduced them to BEMA; it was exactly what they were looking for and more.
Tim and Holly have been concerned about people who have had “the Gospel” for many years but are not growing, maturing, or being transformed in the ways you would expect or hope. They needed something different. Somehow the Gospel they have been given is not making an impact. Using the BEMA teachings, they share the Gospel with an agenda directed to the people God sets in their path. This is very exciting work!
One of Tim and Holly’s main ministries is to disciple the volunteers and interns who live and serve alongside them. Though they come from all different walks of life and denominations of Christianity, they have found the BEMA podcast and discussions groups to be something they were sorely missing. Tim and Holly find joy in introducing so many to BEMA and watching them come alive as they are given permission to ask questions and wrestle with the Text.
Tim and Holly have been faithfully listening to BEMA and are having incredible discussions with their children, the World Race teams, and interns who stay with them. BEMA has rocked their Hellenistic way of thinking in the best possible way. All the way in Peru, BEMA has been a tool to help them grow in the Text.
Tim and Holly's ministry,
Blue Castle Ministries
, stands like a lighthouse for hope in the Andean Mountains.
They work with orphanages and are involved in enrichment and envelopment of church plants, plus community well and sanitation projects. You may recognize them from the
BEMA Facebook page
as they successfully raised funds for a new vehicle in April 2019. For more information about the Andersons and their ministry, visit them
