Although he was born in Canada, Tim Kerr has spent over half his life in Asia. When Tim was a year old, his parents moved from Canada to India and lived there for the next 10 years. Tim has many fond memories of his childhood growing up in places like Calcutta and Bangalore. Later the family returned to Canada for Tim's high school years.
During college, Tim met his sweetheart Joanne, who had grown up in "Little Italy" in the St Clair area of Toronto. After college Tim and Joanne moved to Japan for 12 years. Tim was involved in starting new churches in that fascinating country.
In 2000, their family moved back to Canada. Tim was involved in mentoring men one-to-one as a full time job for the next 5 years.
He has been the pastor of Sovereign Grace Church Toronto since its beginning in the summer of 2004. Tim and Joanne have 4 children aged 13-19.
Tim's paper will be a strong exhortation to each pastor to "delight himself in the wife of his youth" and to set an example for the flock in loving his wife even as Christ loved his bride and gave up his life for her.
