The Timothy Circle is a network of adults, churches and ministries joined together to nurture faith and calling in young people.  It’s also an 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 designed to both resource and foster collaboration between young people, congregations, Christian camps, campus ministries, clergy, youth workers, parents, and other laypeople to help young people hear God’s voice.

Even when young people want to hear God, it’s easy for them to feel overwhelmed, unsure, and confused about where to look for direction.  The goal of the Timothy Circle is to provide them a framework and a support network that is active at every point in a young person’s faith life to support and empower them to discern God’s voice, giving them the tools and experience to hear and follow God’s call throughout their lives.

Young People are able to...

  • Use our online, self-guided Trail Guide to help them hear a vocational call from God and develop the tools and frameworks to continue to head God’s guiding voice throughout their lives.
  • Hear how God is calling other young people and hone their Holy Spirit listening skills (Coming soon)

Parents are able to...

  • Read articles designed to help them support their teen or young adult in their faith and call journey
  • Connect with other parents to share experiences of transitioning young people into a faithful adulthood (Coming soon)

Ministries are able to...

  • Connect with each other through quarterly opt-in Zoom calls to learn what’s working for other organizations
  • Access everything they need to host an inter-ministry gathering that will strengthen networks and improve coordination among camps, churches, and campus ministries (Coming soon)

Laypeople and clergy are able to...

  • Be trained in mentoring a young person in their call, and join a community of other mentors
  • Be trained in creating or enhancing a church, camp, or campus ministry environment that celebrates and nurtures calling
  • Explore our library of call-related book, small group, worship, and curriculum resources
