Dr. Tim Tseng is all about helping Jesus followers flourish wherever faith and life meet. He is currently the Pacific Area Director for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship’s Graduate and Faculty Ministries (GFM). His ministries have included being a seminary professor, scholar, founder of a nonprofit organization, and pastor. Tim’s heart aches for a generation of Asian American students and leaders who will awaken the world to God’s coming kingdom.
