Profile photo for Tim Dickau

Tim Dickau has been a pastor at GCBC for over two decades. Tim led the church to refocus its mission among the neighbourhood and for the good of the city. That focus has resulted in the emergence of a number of creative responses as a church in and for the neighbourhood and city. Tim lives with his wife, Mary, their eldest son and daughter-in-law, and a housemate. He continues to offer his pastoral, preaching and leadership gifts to the church as a whole, while liaising with and teaching for external groups and communities. His book, Plunging Into the Kingdom Way, tells the story of the church’s development of practices of community, hospitality, justice and confession in dialogue with other new monastic type communities across North America. Tim continues to love being a pastor with this people.
