Simplicity and practicality lie at the core of our mentoring program. Two key Scriptures influence our program:
But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
- 2 Corinthians 11:3
Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus.
- Acts 4:13
It is too tempting to make our relationship with Christ more complicated than it needs to be. There should be a proper tension between head and heart in our faith, and we will cultivate an environment that is conducive to heart change and not mere head knowledge.
Life-on-life discipleship means that you benefit from the investment of our time, both intentionally and casually. What do we hope is accomplished in your life over this yearlong investment?
You fully understand that your life is not your own but that you have been bought with a price, giving you an incredible responsibility to live life for an audience of ONE.
Jesus will be ever increasing in your life while you are continually decreasing. Ten months in the Mentoring Timothy environment provides a healthy break from our egocentric, me-centered world. You will learn to live a radical, countercultural life that focuses on serving God and others, not yourself.
