Timothy Project

God is using the Timothy Project to equip Middle Eastern believers to apply biblical truth! Through this project, a group of talented local writers and graphic designers produces interactive, culturally relevant discipleship materials.

People from this particular culture are generally group-oriented and learn via discussion. Religious training, however, has traditionally been an exception: normally, a religious authority figure lectures while the followers listen in silence. Believers in the Middle East were using this same method to communicate biblical truth; but it wasn’t very effective in changing lives.

The Timothy Project takes a different approach. Its groundbreaking lessons prompt groups of believers to discuss how to live out Christian truth within their own culture. As a result, Middle Eastern Christians are discovering how to apply biblical truth  and disciple others.

Hussein,* a local believer who writes for the Timothy Project, has seen fellow believers grow when they use these lessons. He shares, “People were trying to learn more about the topic they were studying, both on the day of the lesson and later. They were changing! … The lessons keep paying off in a person’s life over time.”

Over 200 Timothy Project lessons have been written so far, including series of lessons for young adults and women’s groups. Each has the potential to change lives with the truth found in God’s Word. In 2016, the Timothy Project expanded its ministry by creating 24 television programs that introduce the project’s Bible studies, and it has been invited by two local television stations to create more programming. All lessons are now being adapted so they can be accessed in numerous formats, including e-books and a mobile app.

For 25 years a multinational leadership team, including a Christar worker, provided guidance for the Timothy Project. In September 2023, they rejoiced when Aylin,* a local believer who has been instrumental in the Timothy Project since its inception, became the ministry leader!

Your gift to the Timothy Project could pay off in the life of a Middle Eastern believer! As followers of Christ learn how to apply biblical truth, they’re equipped to live out their faith.
