MEET THE TEAM
At the Timothy Initiative, we take pride in developing leaders within our ministry. It mirrors our commitment to cultivate disciples who unconventionally follow Jesus in a radical lifestyle of community. We reject the paradigm of hiring “professionals” to govern our community without any involvement in it. In order for our approach to function effectively our leaders must demonstrate certain characteristics daily: constant and detailed communication, an attitude of shared empowerment, a conscious awareness of the delineation of responsibilities, a submission to structure, a sold-out commitment to Jesus, a willingness to participate in our shared vision, a spirit of encouragement, and a posture of servant leadership. This approach allows us to preserve our community with strong bonds of unity, experience, and empathy.
