Our Vision

He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of joy instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.

Our Mission

We proclaim the kingdom of God, on earth as it is in heaven. Helping people experience and be transformed by the love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit makes our heart beat. We have devoted our lives to see the people of God live in the fullness of their identity as lovers and beloveds, sons and daughters, and as a chosen people, a royal priesthood. We work to equip believers to realize their connectedness to each other and their full freedom, healing, and purpose in Christ.

What We Do

Writing and speaking | Songwriting, and worship leading | Relational ministry and discipleship

You will find us leading worship, teaching, and ministering in living rooms, bible studies, church services, conferences and retreats--hosting many of our own gatherings as well as partnering with other other church organizations and ministries. Adventurers at heart, traveling to minister to the body is exciting for us, but we also stay well-rooted at home in Colorado Springs where many of our favorite ministry moments happen around dinner tables and backyard fire pits. We enjoy being submitted to the care of pastors and operate The Blackthorn Project, our 501c3 nonprofit organization, under the oversight of a board of directors.

Tim

Tim's favorite smells are: old acoustic instruments, sawdust, wood smoke, fish slime. and coffee about to be sipped before dawn on a road trip. Tim is a visual artist and craftsman, worshipper and musician, and a seeker and articulator of the kingdom of God. Tim enjoys not being in a hurry. He enjoys proverbs and one-liners of wisdom from the scripture, and facilitating moments of ministry where the power of God is invited and paradigms shift, whether in front of a fellowship, at a retreat, or with new and old friends over excellent food or by a crackling fire.

Laurie

To Laurie, there is hardly anything more fun than dirt under her fingernails from a long day in her flower and vegetable gardens, though she'll never turn down an invitation to fly-fish on the river with Tim. Her three young kids are the delight of her heart, and she spends much of her time volunteering in their schools and going to the zoo. Shamelessly and completely in love with Jesus, she treasures her life of family and ministry with Tim and longs to see people break out of fear, shame, and guilt and into the full life of Christ. She moves in the prophetic and has a special anointing to ignite joy and hope in the hearts of others.
