Wiens FamilyMore important than his work, Tim has a passion for God and finds great joy as a husband and father. He and Katie have one son, Eliot, who attends DC, and they are the dog parents of their two Great Danes, Greta and Lena. The Wiens family loves to travel together and Tim is an avid reader and sports enthusiast. The Wiens have found great community at DC and feel blessed to be a part of DC’s legacy in providing an exceptional education and in working to fulfill the school’s mission to educate students who will serve God and impact the world through biblical thought and action.
