The Timothy Circle is a network of adults, churches and ministries joined together to nurture faith and calling in young people.  It’s also the best online resource for young people (ages 14-24) trying to discern God’s call in their lives.  We believe that ‘calling’ encompasses any call to serve others — whether in a secular profession, through volunteering, or in a ministry setting.

The Timothy Circle is a network designed to work together.  Every part of the network gains support and collaboration from every other part — something that is usually lacking in the Church today. Each member also gain a community of peers, resources, and training to talk about call effectively in their unique setting.

The Timothy Circle helps congregationscamps, and campus ministries develop a culture that nurtures and encourages a sense of call in their young people.  We help laypeople mentor young people in exploring their call.  Ministry organizations connect to brainstorm, learn from each other, and submit their events and programs to a searchable database where young people can find opportunities that help them explore their call from God.  Young people gain resources to think about what call means and how to listen to God’s voice, and their parents gain resources and support to talk to their children about faith.

Goals and Aims

Even when young people are actively listening for what God has called them to do, it’s easy for them to feel overwhelmed, unsure, and confused about where to look for direction.  The Timothy Circle provides them a framework, and helps ensure that all parts of the Church are working together to support and empower young people discerning God’s call for their lives.  With the Timothy Circle:
