Exciting news about the future of Grace Based Families

Since Grace Based Families started forty years ago, it has been committed to helping individuals, families and churches treat one another the way God treats them – with grace. Though the methods have changed, the message of grace has remained the same.

As a result of God’s faithful work through Dr. Tim and Darcy Kimmel and the team surrounding them, thousands upon thousands of families around the world have been transformed by grace.

To help carry this message to a new generation of families, Tim Kimmel and the board have unanimously decided to hire Cody Kimmel as the new president of Grace Based Families. Tim will remain engaged as the Founder and will still play a pivotal role in championing the message of God’s grace for families moving forward.

Meet Cody Kimmel

Cody Kimmel is Tim and Darcy’s eldest son and has spent the last twenty years as a pastor, professor, writer, and business owner. A graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, Cody believes in the power of God’s grace to set families free. Not only has he experienced the message of grace in his own life, he has seen it change countless families around him.

Along with his new role with Grace Based Families, Cody also hosts the children’s story podcast, Lightcatchers. He lives in West Linn, Oregon with his wife, Lauren, and four kids, Kyler, Hayes, Wesley and Mabel.
