Meet Tim Neu
Dr. Tim Neu became Interim President and Chief Executive Officer of Wycliffe Associates in October of 2020. For 12 years prior, Tim has provided leadership to the ministry in the areas of finance, Bible translation technology, translation services, and, most recently, as Chief Operating Officer. Tim holds a Ph.D. in Biblical studies and has helped national Bible translators develop a process to check and share their translations with their churches, involving the broader community of believers in Bible translation. Tim and his wife, Nancy, have two daughters, two sons-in-law, and four grandchildren.
Deeply committed to Bible translation, Tim has personally served Wycliffe Associates’ national translators in Myanmar, Nepal, and Zambia. In his role as CEO, Tim leads staff and supporters in advancing and expanding translation efforts by equipping and empowering local churches and leaders to fully embrace the challenge of Bible translation—so they can finally have God’s Word in the language of their heart.
From Tim’s Heart
“I have a passion for everyone, for every language and people group, to have God’s Word in its fullness.
“If they have only a Scripture portion, they need the rest to understand the heartbeat of God. If they have only the New Testament, they also need the Old Testament to understand the context of the stories and the prophecy. Our commission is to present the Word of God in its fullness, proclaiming Christ so that all may be presented fully mature in Christ (Colossians 1:25, 28 NIV).
"This has been and will continue to be our work.”
