Beard Of The Week | Tim McKnight

When Bearded Gospel Men posted about our fundraiser, we had men from all over the country sign up to grow beards for us. At the time I jokingly called these men "The Stranger Beards", but despite never meeting them, we have grown to love them. We have connected with them via email and have been humbled, encouraged, and blessed by their genuine desire to be involved with our fundraiser and their eager willingness to forfeit their faces for our cause. These are godly men who love Jesus and take seriously His call to care for the orphaned. What a blessing it has been to be connected with them.

We now have 32 beards on board and want you to know them and love them as much as we do. I now pronounce Wednesdays to be Beard Of The Week day where we will, in no particular order, introduce each and every one of our fabulous Beard Growers to you.

For today, it is my pleasure to announce to you Tim McKnight! Tim lives in Anderson, South Carolina and is an Assistant Professor of Christian Studies at Anderson University. Tim found all ten of his sponsors after practically .20 seconds of signing up to be a Beard Grower and with great trust, he gave them free reign over his face. He let them choose how to grow his beard and when the votes came in, it was decided: He's growing "The Crowder"! When asked why he wanted to grow a beard for A Beard For A Baby, he said, "I'm growing my beard because I believe Christ-followers should care for orphans and the fatherless. Helping DJ and Courtney adopt is a small way I can show compassion to at least one child in need of parents." To learn more about his heart for our fundraiser, you can check out his blog post here.

Simply put, he's pretty awesome! Vote for his beard or sponsor him today!
