Our Family

 “Have fun…do your best…let Jesus shine through you.”

That’s been our Roehl Family Motto for many years…and it describes the heart of our family.

Tim and Shirley have been husband and wife and ministry team since 1980.  They met and fell in love at Vennard College.  Their first pastorate was at Grace Chapel Evangelical Church in Milwaukee, WI where they served from 1980-1990.  During those years their daughters Aubrey and Elise were born.

We moved to the Twin Cities metro area in 1990 and planted ChristLife Evangelical Church in in the north suburbs.  We loved ten years of ministry leading ChristLife.  During those years Aubrey and Elise attended Spring Lake Park schools. Shirley became the Office Administrator for Evangelical Church Missions, serving our denomination as well as our home church.

In 2000 we became missionaries with Church Resource Ministries (CRM).  Tim led a CRM team and works with a wide variety of leaders, churches and organizations. From 2011-May 2012 he was the Director of Church Health and Multiplication for the Wesleyan Church.  You can read more on Tim’s Ministry Page.

Aubrey met Dylan Does at Vennard College and married and married him the day she graduated from Vennard on May 6, 2006.   Our grandson Ian joined their family on November 17, 2008.   They welcomed Xavier on September 17, 2010. They pastor the Yakima Evangelical Church in Yakima, WA. 

Elise graduated from Vennard College in 2008.  She works at a very cool coffee shop in Oskaloosa, IA and leads the youth ministry at our Oskaloosa Evangelical Church.  She is Commissioned for Special Ministry in Community and Youth Ministry in The Evangelical Church.

Shirley’s Dad Dale Miller made his home with us  for several years.  He is a godly man with a fun sense of humor and a keen follower of the news.
