Tim Austin

As your coach, I want to help you grow, change, develop and achieve your life goals.
I was born and raised in Chico, California. Following my college years, I enjoyed 20 years of living overseas with my family from 1996-2016. During that time, I was a dad, missionary, pastor and entrepreneur. I pursued professional coaching training while living in Turkey, using my newly acquired skills to coach expats and teams. I've worked broadly in culturally diverse contexts.

My experience overseas causes me to view life as both a calling and journey of discovery. I believe transitions are fertile ground for clarity and growth. I approach coaching as a strategic point on the map of one's journey, where coach and client work together in a creative partnership. I absolutely love supporting my clients through this process of discovery.

I received my bachelor’s degree in church leadership from Bethany University. My master’s degree in Education and World Christianity is from Denver Seminary. For fun and relaxation, I enjoy hiking, fishing, hunting, reading, traveling, my church community and time with family and friends.
