Men's Ministry: The Timothy Road
Mentoring. Shepherding. Training. Equipping.
Begun in the fall of 2011, men of CEFC can now step out onto the path to leadership, headed toward more intentional involvement in CEFC ministries. To plot a course, the process starts with a simple discussion with an elder. One-on-one mentoring follows, because a journey taken together honors the Lord. Key stops along the way include training in personal holiness, foundations of doctrine, interpersonal and leadership skills over a two-semester period. Looking ahead to formal leadership, the experience is broadened by purposeful hands-on involvement in specific ministries, such as participating in a worship service at Hope Rescue Mission in Reading, visiting an evangelistic Bible study meeting or small group, attending administrative elder, shepherding elder and deacon meetings, or going on a hospital visit with Pastor Al Kimball.
From past Timothy Road participants:
- "I went into the Timothy Road class thinking it would help me become better equipped for eventual church leadership. Well, that proved true in one sense. In another sense, I learned that if a man waits to serve until he feels thoroughly equipped for that role, he'll likely never serve. That insight gave me the courage to say yes when I was later called, a decision I have never regretted. To God be the glory!"
- “If you’re looking for a great value, try Timothy Road. You'll enjoy the view and there are no tolls along the way. I recommend it.”
