Supporting us financially

Help Tim with ministry expenses at Hope Fleet.  Every little bit helps.

Hope Fleet is a 501c3 all contributions are tax deductible.

    We believe that work is good and God has been so faithful to provide opportunities for us to work.  We take advantage of those opportunities and He continues to meet our needs in many different ways. Kim is working at our church’s school Christian Life Academy.  We are blessed to be part of this ministry and blessed by the income it provides for our family.

    That being said, we have been asked multiple times how someone could send us a blessing.  In the past we have only been able to use Zelle or Venmo but we have recently been blessed by Hope Fleet to be able take gifts through them as Tim is now on staff there as the Ocean Reach Coordinator.  This allows you to take advantage of the tax benefits of donating to a 501c3. 

All gifts given through this link will help offset the ministry expenses incurred as he works as a the Ocean Reach Coordinator at Hope Fleet.  Primary travel and living expenses. This  is an uncompensated position and he is encouraged to seek support to assist with his expenses.
