Tim and Cassie went to college together at Bethel University. They both became Christians during their freshman year, through the ministry of Campus Outreach. Through involvement in CO and the local church, Tim and Cassie gained a desire to be a part of the Great Commission, specifically through what God is doing among college students. After graduating, Tim began working full-time with CO, while Cassie spent some time working as a nurse and being involved with CO in a volunteer capacity. They got married in November, 2014 and enjoyed ministering together at the U of M for a semester.
