Timothy Team is a year long program geared to disciple and equip young people, through study and practice, with lifelong tools so that they may continually grow in their walk with Christ Jesus.
The program combines discipleship training with real life experience. The focus is on daily disciplines of Bible intake and spiritual exercises that produce habits which lead to maturity in the Christian life. As part of this program, the Timothy Team directs our Challenge Course Programs. Team members are trained to work with children and adults of all ages as adventure educators and challenge course facilitators. The Challenge Course Programs give the on-the-job training of leadership, responsibility and servant hood. Together these activities provide an excellent environment to grow in Christ-like maturity.
Matthew 22:37-40 states, Jesus replied:" 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.
Part I - Love God with all your heart, soul, and mind
The first six months of the program are designed to develop, through the study of classical disciplines, tools that will allow you to deepen your relationship with God in a personal and intimate way. From our significance in Christ to a greater understanding of prayer and meditation, you will be able to choose tools that can be used throughout your lifetime.
Part II - Love your neighbor as yourself
The second part of the Program concentrates on our relationship with others. From family to acquaintances, we explore the role we have as Christians to those around us. Topics include servant hood, evangelism, stewardship, spiritual gifts, missions and other relevant issues. Real life applications are experienced as we go out into the New Braunfels community and minister to those around us.
All materials are supplied throughout the program, which results in an extensive personal library.
