Family Matters is a non-profit ministry whose goal is to see families transformed by God's grace into instruments of restoration and reformation by equipping families for every age and stage of life. We view families as the foundation of a successful society. Today, perhaps more than ever before, the family is being fragmented and undermined by many counter-forces such as busyness, relentless change, a lack of clear moral values, an attitude of indifference, and children being forced to grow up too fast. When families are unhealthy, our communities suffer many of the consequences in areas relating to economic productivity, education, law enforcement, health care needs, abuse, and violence.

Tim and Family Matters conduct the Raising Truly Great Kids conference across the country on the unique pressures that confront members of today's families. Over the past few years, Tim has spoken to millions of people throughout the country. He has spoken for Promise Keepers, Focus on the Family's Life on the Edge Tour, and he and his wife, Darcy, are speakers for FamilyLife Ministry's Weekend To Remember conferences.

He has also developed four video series': Grandparenthood, The Hurried Family, Raising Kids Who Turn Out Right, Basic Training For A Few Good Men and Grace Based Parenting.
Tim hosted his own nationally syndicated radio show, Tim Kimmel Live! that tackled cutting edge topics. He approached these topics from a family perspective, ran them through a biblical grid and then asked, "So what?" to discover how our lives are impacted. Tim interviewed the leaders of academia, politics, entertainment and public policy. Some of Tim's guests have included Steve Forbes, Chuck Colson, James Dobson and Dennis Rainey. Tim's audience was coast-to-coast, two hours a day, five days a week for five years.
