A Bittersweet Story from "Re-entry" Disciple Making You might recall reading Melissa C's testimony in our August e-letter. She spent fifteen years in federal prison and was very candid about her former life as a drug dealer. Melissa was being discipled by Tracy Patterson and Karen Stroud. She also attended "Genesis Fellowship" and a small group [...]

It Started with Lunch and a Game of Horseshoes The enemy of God wants us to believe disciple making is best left to "religious experts." He capitalizes on our doubts and fears, keeping most on the sidelines and out of the game. It doesn't have to be this way! Making disciples really is as simple as [...]

Linda Vannatta celebrated her 83rd birthday this year. I've come to think of her as a female version of Caleb, the Old Testament hero who at age 85 was still a leader in the Lord's army when the Israelites conquered Canaan. Linda is not ready for the sidelines! She first opened her Bedford County home [...]

Ray Singer: It’s Because of the Christ Child

Look! The virgin will conceive a child. She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means 'God with us'." Matthew 1:23 Jesus most definitely is "the reason for the season!" Merry Christmas from the Timothy Network.  Everything we're about and strive to do rests on the fact that God, the [...]

We're either like Mary or Martha, the sisters who opened their home to Jesus in Luke 10. Martha hurried around making preparations for the meal that [...]

It's gratifying to see disciple making "work" the way it's supposed to. This happens when someone is discipled and they in turn began making disciples themselves. That has been the case with the author of the following testimonial. Not only did Ray Singer pay it forward by investing in others after being discipled, became a [...]
