It's About People Leading Others to a Transforming Faith in Christ

What if a handful of Christians decided to get serious about discipleship? We've asked ourselves that question and decided to do something about it. Real. Serious. Discipleship. Welcome to the Timothy Network.

The Great Commission 'I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.' (Matthew 28:18-20)

The Quest for Intentional Discipleship

Jesus had a lot to say about discipleship. His teachings focused on character formation rather than external behavior – “a righteousness inside out.” He called disciples to live in submission to His kingdom rule; his call is the same today.

Growing as a disciple of Jesus is more of an organic process than a program. Programs tend to follow a one-size-fits-all approach, focusing on regimentation and structure. Jesus didn’t have a program. He focused on developing people in a highly individualized and relational way. He worked with a few at a time, one conversation at a time, one relationship at a time – life on life. Much like a Master Gardener cares for his garden, Jesus fed, watered and individually nurtured his disciples. He “grew” them in close communion with one another. Any worthwhile effort to make disciples must follow this natural, relational path. Our passion is to see a revolution of disciple making by getting relational!
