Missions Director, Touch The World Tim Dedrick

My name is Tim Dedrick and I am the Missions Director at Touch the World. I became involved in missions at a very young age, participating in trips all through middle school and high school, and eventually went on to lead countless trips myself. After college, I followed a call to serve as a full time missionary in Ireland for 2.5 years, helping run youth outreach programs to teens in the region. Today, I am excited to share my experiences and expertise with others in my role at Touch the World. My main focus is to come alongside youth leaders, to help them effectively serve their students and equip their students to live out the mission of God in their daily lives.
