Timothy Track

You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” – 2 Timothy 2:1–2

At Immanuel, our prayer is that the Lord would allow us to raise up godly leaders who would lead our church in the years to come and to send out godly men as pastors, church planters, and missionaries. We have developed the Timothy Track in order to assess and equip faithful men for the work of gospel ministry.

The Timothy Track is divided into three 12-week blocks, and participants will meet weekly on Monday mornings from 5:30–7:00. Throughout the Timothy Track, participants will memorize the book of Titus, interpret and discuss the Pastoral Epistles, read and discuss numerous books on theology and pastoral ministry, as well as have opportunities to preach and receive feedback. Each semester has a specific emphasis.

First Semester: Pastoral Ministry/Counseling

Second Semester: Ecclesiology (Doctrine of the Church)

Third Semester: Preaching, Worship, and Missions

Expectations for Participants:

  • Attendance at weekly meetings is vital. Participants who miss three or more meetings will be removed from the Timothy Track for the semester and will need to re-do the semester to receive full credit.
  • Complete all assignments prior to the weekly meeting.
  • Maintain a humble spirit that is willing to engage in discussion and to receive pushback from pastors and other participants.
