Passion: Church Planting
Country: Ireland
Region: Europe

Tim and Kristina serve the Lord as FMI church planting missionaries to Galway. 

Both Tim and Kristina are graduates of LIFE Bible College-East and are ordained ministers with The Foursquare Church. In their 19 years of vocational ministry, the O’Tooles have served as youth pastors, lead pastors and church planters in both the Southeast and Northeast Districts.

Prior to coming to Ireland, in 2011, Tim and Kristina planted and pastored The Bridge in Groton, Connecticut. During this time, Tim served as Divisional Superintendent for the state of Connecticut and both served as District church planting coaches and assessors.

Tim and Kristina have two children: Elijah and Maddy, who along with their dad and mum, love life in Ireland!!

The heart of the O’Toole’s ministry is to come alongside to serve the people of Galway through their volunteer initiative: Serve the City Galway. By reaching out to their community through acts of kindness, they are able to show God’s love in practical ways – with no strings attached.

Along with serving practically, Tim and Kristina are also using their passion, training and experience to disciple other disciple-making Christians and to train Irish Believers to plant and pastor Irish churches.

“The love of Christ gave me to the Irish, to serve them humbly and sincerely for my entire lifetime, if I am found worthy.” Saint Patrick

“One more thing, friends: pray for us. Pray that the Master’s Word will simply take off and race through the country to a ground- swell of response, just as it did among you.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1

BECOME A SUPPORT  PARTNER – Our visas do not allow us to work in Ireland and as support-raising missionaries, we are responsible for raising 100% of our funding. Your giving helps us fulfill God’s call and mission in Galway in meeting the practical needs in our community through our volunteer initiative – Serve the City, in building the foundation of a church planting movement through discipleship and raising up Irish pastors to plant Irish churches.
