VISION & INFO
Paul met Timothy when Timothy was very young. Immediately Paul saw his potential, and spent years investing in Timothy’s gifts, training him as a leader, and releasing him into meaningful ministry. Project Timothy’s goal is to inspire, motivate, train, and release a group of young leaders in the Vineyard!
Daily we’ll have regional and national speakers offering leadership and ministry training. Our teachings are both motivational and practical—by the end, all students will have been trained in, and practiced, all of the following: giving a short teaching (depending on their year); leading a small group; organizing and leading an outreach; praying the 5-step model over people; and more! We’ll also train and provide opportunities for personal reflection and time with God. Each night we’ll have a time of worship, a teaching, and extended time for prophetic and prayer ministry. We’ll be conducting several community outreaches with the goal of igniting a lasting passion for outreach that they’ll carry home with them. Lastly, we’ll have lots of fun! There will be hiking, swimming, sports, games and lots of other great things to do—building lasting friendships with Vineyard youth from across the region.

RETURNING STUDENTS – PROJECT TIMOTHY FOUR YEAR PLAN
Our goal is for teens to return for several years, so that the foundation of the first year can be built upon and solidified. Relationships are also strengthened across years, and it gives students a great chance to mentor each other! Below is our four year plan with goals we set for each year, and specific classes that will be taught. If you are interested in being an intern, please contact the site you are interested in!
