Leaders equipped to affect disciples. + Challenge Staff Training

Greetings warriors! The Timothy Group is planning a leadership week for June 27th-30th. All Challenge basic Alumni are invited. This will also be part of our Challenge Staff Selection process, but you can still attend for great leadership and teamwork training, even if you aren't interested in staffing Challenge.


Wednesday-Friday: Accountability, mentorship, fundraising, operations
Friday-Saturday: Extreme Course
Sunday: Fellowship rest and debrief


Workshops: 4 hours a day

PT, Skills, Drills: 4 hours a day

Extreme Course: 42 hour endurance training, standard day pack.

Who are you and what are you made for?

Mentored to mentor.

Today’s cultural as a significant lack in men willing to step up to lead. In a recent mission to a high risk country, an organization received hundreds of applications from women, with only a few from men. We were made to be leaders, this is unacceptable. Are we willing to step up and fill the cultural gap?

Accountability: Why its key to being a leader, a follower, and a warrior.

Timothy Group mission operations: Where are we going? What can we do? What can you be involved in?

Fundraising: How to promote the Timothy Group at your church, to your friends, to your dog.

Skills: PT, Drill, Land navigation, rappelling, etc.

42 hour endurance team training.

Cost! We want to keep this event as affordable as possible. The cost is only $100, but you are responsible for bringing your own food. Bring as much or as little as you want. We can take you grocery shopping upon arrival. Note that during the endurance training the only food allowed will be what is permitted by the staff.

Each Staff member will teach an in depth session of an assigned role. This includes:

Essentially how they will teach each of their roles, not necessarily do it, but walk the staff through their idea of the most effective way to teach it at Challenge. Review roles that need reviewing. Such as land nav, drill, etc.

Mentoring at Challenge - Carnley


Applying Spiritual Lessons to Physical activities Spirit vs. Physical PT…..I hate your guts Carnley

Remember, our enemy, the devil hates it when young men step into a position of leadership -- especially when that leadership involves training up other future men. As it says in 1 Corinthians 16:13: BE WATCHFUL, STAND FIRM IN THE FAITH, ACT LIKE MEN, BE STRONG.



SPIRITUAL: Pray that God will use this week to mold each of us into Godly Men for the Army of Jesus Christ and that nothing would distract us from hearing God’s mission for our lives. Pray now that God would prepare your heart for the important leadership training you will receive.

PHYSICAL: Commit to working out on a regular basis and being in good physical shape prior to Challenge. Begin today to set up a work out routine. Be accountable to someone in your family!
