The Timothy Initiative (w/ Tim Walker) – Episode 165

Tim Walker joins Dale on today’s 95Podcast to talk about the remarkable impact he has seen at Restored Church in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Restored Church has a decade of meeting the needs of the less fortunate by sharing the Gospel with them. Once someone has come to Christ, the next step is to disciple them through a process called The Timothy Initiative. The goal of The Timothy Initiative is to develop discipleship through the 4th generation.

Tim shares how he’s seen firsthand the impact of developing disciples who develop disciples that develop disciples. He also notes four key shifts that are happening: 1 – Believer to Disciple, 2 – Knowledge to Obedience, 3 – Disciple to Disciple-Maker & 4 – Addition to Multiplication.

Key Takeaways

2) There is a shift happening in the Church today that is leaning away from knowledge and toward obedience. 

3) The health of the pastor/leader of the church often determines the health of the organization. It’s challenging to lead people into arenas of spiritual impact that you aren’t currently experiencing or walking in personally.

4) The Timothy Initiative sees fruit all across the world as ministries are developing a more sustainable form of disciple-making.
