Designed to be the best online resource for young people trying to discern God’s call in their lives, the Timothy Circle is also a network of adults, churches and ministries joined to nurture faith in young people.  We define ‘young person’ as ages 14-24.

One part of that network is to develop and train people in churches, camps, and campus ministries to mentor young people in exploring their call and help their congregation or ministry develop a culture in which a sense of call is nurtured and encouraged.

Another part of the network is a searchable database of events, programs, and opportunities that have a track record of helping young people hear and follow God’s voice.

Goals and Aims

There is a wide universe of opportunities for students as they approach adulthood. Even when young people are actively seeking to discern what God has called them to do, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, unsure, and confused about where to look for direction.  With the Timothy Circle website/app and mentor program, students, parents, mentors, and organizational ministries can all connect to empower those discerning God’s call for their lives.  With the Timothy Circle:

Students will be able to...

  • explore resources and programs in their region that will help grow their understanding of their call
  • take quizzes and do activities to help them discern their call, connect with one another, and share their call stories

Parents will be able to...

  • learn about the opportunities available for their student’s age level and interests
  • share experiences on transitioning students into adulthood
  • receive encouragement and resources to help them listen to and support their children

Mentors will be able to...

  • access training and resources on how to identify and nurture a young person’s call
  • participate in their own ongoing community to connect with other mentors to ask questions and receive feedback and encouragement
  • learn how to work with their congregation to encourage a culture in which call is celebrated and nurtured

Ministry Organizations will be able to...

  • post information about their events, conferences and resources
  • connect with students who have expressed interest in their organization, program, or event
