Reverend Dr. Timothy Carentz Sr joined The Warrior’s Journey (TWJ) in May 2017 as the Kaiserslautern Military Resiliency Center/Rhema Cafe director, which launched in June of 2020. He hails from Queens, New York, and enlisted into the U.S. Air Force in July 1994, at the age of 17. During his 23-year career, Tim served with distinct honor as a critical care specialist, a first responder to the Pentagon on 9/11, cared for approximately 25,000 critically wounded warriors, and retired as a Chief Master Sergeant in 2018. Tim received his calling to Germany as a child and into ministry while on a 7-year assignment in Germany in 2009.
Tim’s passion continues to focus on active-duty Peer-Led Support-Groups for those combatting Invisible Wounds as a wounded warrior. His return to Germany and his ministry with TWJ has given the opportunity for a Christ-Focused Military Resiliency Center for the approximately 75,000 American military families serving in and transitioning through Germany. The Warrior’s Journey is excited about working with local churches and military chaplains, with Tim directing the charge, to bring opportunities for military members and their families to find deeper levels of resiliency through faith in Christ.
The ‘Kaiserslautern Military Community’ is surrounded by ten military installations and contains the largest settlement of Americans outside of the U.S. It is also the transient location for service members deploying to/from the combat zone. Landstuhl is the primary medical hub for those ill/wounded across Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
Tim earned his Master of Divinity (M.Div.) through Liberty University and completed a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) through Assemblies of God Theological Seminary. The focus of his studies includes intercultural communications, diversity, biblical studies, and resiliency.
