Tim and Renata Constable joined Christian Associates in 2004 while Tim served as the Director of Arts and Worship at International Christian Fellowship in Warsaw, a CAI and Christian Missionary Alliance joint project. After a year of fundraising in Canada, and a year of internship in The Hague, they returned to Warsaw in 2008 to rejoin the work of evangelicals in the city. Since then, a hockey team has been founded, a food to the homeless ministry has been started, worship leaders have been activated and sound technicians trained.
For the last year, Renata has been leading the children’s ministry at ICF. It has been a growing and fruitful time for her as she has recruited teachers, introduced an exciting new interactive curriculum which gives the kids a clearer picture of the Gospel being a story spanning Genesis to Revelation and in which Jesus is active from beginning to end.
In October 2015, Tim was asked to initiate a second service at ICF that we would call The Gathering. Its purpose was to give a more evangelistic outlet for the church. In January 2016, the meeting moved to a new location right in the middle of the nation’s capital. Tim and Renata have been assembling and developing a team of people in Warsaw in order to launch this meeting as a new church plant.
This is an exciting time for Tim and Renata as they have seen many people develop a heart for this city. This is a context unlike almost any other. The world comes to Warsaw in the form of students, business people, and tourists. Most people rarely know how long they will be here for sure, or where they will go next. A growing number of foreign nationals are calling Warsaw home indefinitely.
But while in Warsaw, Tim, Renata, and their team seek to introduce people to Jesus through authentic friendships, simplicity of message, excellence of presentation, and to develop them as disciples and leaders, reaching towards their full potential in Christ, in order to impact our city and cities around the world.
Tim and Renata live in Warsaw with their 11, 8, and 6-year old children, all of whom were born in "the field".
