The Timothy Group is to be a multi-faceted, multi use facility operating year round designed to model biblical masculinity to fathers and sons alike in order to mentor young men for life success. Boys should be valued as boys, and given the support they need to actualize their full potential as human beings, including their talents, their intellect, their ability to trust and love, and their leadership abilities. To empower children who accept themselves, are assertive, and who have healthy self-esteem, to become men, respectful and cognizant that God created them to be confident men.
The problem is that The Timothy Group lacks a permanent home. The issue our community is facing is lack of trust based on our inability to hold our events in a permanent location. Our students and their parents mandate that we have a property on which we can build our physical school. We need a permanent location where we can ministry to the needs of those we serve. Currently, we hold events all over the continental United States, wherever we can borrow land. This is inefficient and our inability to be in a consistent location is confusing. We are losing at least 126 students each year to this particular circumstance. We need a permanent location with facilities to house our gear, vehicles, educational supplies, and students.
Facilities profoundly influence learning, attendance, completion of academic cycles. School buildings positively affect completion rates, and increases registration. Greater registration means more funding for the mentoring of our youth. Empiric evidence indicates that there is a direct relationship between educational infrastructure and educational performance, and that investments in educational infrastructure contribute to improve the quality of education and the economic performance of graduates. The Timothy Group can best train our members on property and in facilities that we own, operate, and maintain.
The Timothy Group has existing curriculum and a year round schedule to implement right away.
Theological studies, Medical training, Land Navigation Training, Problem-Solving Systems, Communications Training, Leadership Training, Team Building, Team dynamics studies and training, Rappel training, Technical Skills Training, Home and Vehicle Maintenance training, Humanitarian Assistance qualifications, Automobile Maintenance Qualifications, Wilderness Medical Qualifications, Land Survival Qualifications, Leadership / Teambuilding Seminars, Praise / Worship Camp, Biblical manhood training, Water Survival Training, Rescue Training, Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation Qualifications, Leaders Reaction Course, Scuba Training, Sky Diving.
Once the training is in full swill the students will rotate through the curriculum. In one year’s time our first graduates will be inducted into the mission’s operations phase. From there they will be sent to the regions that best fit their training skill level.
Our nation is seeing a shortage in paramedic. The Timothy Group can answer this call with education, training, and experience opportunities. The Timothy Group has the ability and the networking to train young men to augment and eventually fill firefighter vacancies. Missionaries are needed more than ever. Countries still have enormous medical, educational and social needs, and the opportunities for Christian doctors, nurses, teachers, agriculturalists and other skilled professionals have never been greater.
The communities we serve require us to have certified, experienced, well qualified men capable of carrying heavy loads across rough terrain in order to minister medical, food and construction relief in crisis environments. The Timothy Group can find ostracized families; provide food and medical aid, and bring them to refuge. The Timothy Group would like to continue the search for abducted families. We can provide medical, food, and literature support.
A training Pipeline exists to channel our students through the necessary training platform necessary for the qualification to meet the needs of the outcomes. This is the most economical and efficient way to ensure quality education is presented to the students. The hands on training and personal interaction with instructors ensures focused adherence to the material and complete understanding.
Certified and experienced staff personnel will train specific phases of the pipeline.
With the word of God as the foundation of all other teaching, give the young men experiences that will demonstrate to them the strength they possess and the length they can go to positively impact the world around them. Building on this revelation, give them the opportunities that exist to impact the globe. Send the young men (trained, experienced, and motivated) to regions within America, and around the globe that other cannot reach. Through medical service, food relief, and construction efforts, minister to these unreachable people. Build trust and relationships with these unreached people. Through the trusted relationship share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our own shared experiences.
We ask for your continued prayer. Pray for the conflicts in our communities to lessen. That people will be turned to Christ. That people will not become discouraged. Pray the next generation will see peace, not of man, but of Christ. We ask for your prayers for the persecuted Church here in our communities. We deliver bibles, food, and medical supplies to people groups who are physically separated from the world by civil war, hostile borders, or restricted laws or religious or humanitarian persecution. We hike 150 miles in jungle, ford rivers, conduct search and rescue missions.
Funding is an issue please help the Timothy Group provide trained personnel (Doctors, Paramedics, EMTs), and serious medical equipment to meet the need.
Please, empower The Timothy Group to train, equip, and send spirit filled young men to their school room, work place, or higher education and home environment and make an impact. Bettering others, functioning with high confidence placed in a loving, caring, empowering Heavenly Father who can help them solve life issues, manage heavy emotional situations, operate in high stress environment. These men will offer hope and solutions to our nations devastated victims and our globes unreachable people group.
I loose sleep praying for wisdom as I plan strategies that will raise the proper support to purchase adequate property, hire the spirit filled and blessed staff to write and execute wonderful life changing curriculum, build the mentally stimulating facilities to house our ambitious students, purchase the needed supplies that will be sent to heal a world full of crying babies that have lost both of their parents and need someone to take them to safety and protection.
We desire to raise a legion of young American Men who will answer the call, be a voice for the silent, stand courageously in the gap for those who have been beaten down too low. These young men can lend a helping hand to those who have lost all hope. These young men will live as an example for all around them to follow. These young men will go to regions of the world no one else can get to and do what no one else is wants to do because no one else has the means to for a people no one knows exists. Help us to raise these men.
Once The Timothy Group acquires land, we can begin immediately to schedule events, open registration and train young men to be leaders in the community. The property will serve as a permanent location to which parents can trust their child to be cared for. Fivestaff are on hand and ready to serve. The remaining staff (a total of twelve) will relocate to the Columbus Georgia area. The permanent training location is key. If buildings exist on the property they will be utilized to the best advantage for equipment storage, staff housing, classroom training areas. The Timothy Group has existing curriculum and a year round schedule to implement right away. Once the training is in full swill the students will rotate through the curriculum. In one year’s time our first graduates will be inducted into the mission’s operations area. From there they will be sent to the regions that best fit their training skill level. The project description has seven main components:
(a) What is it? The project is twofold:
(i) Acquire property and
(ii) Full Time Training
(b) Who will benefit? The benefit is multi-fold
(i) the students benefit as they
a. grow in self-confidence,
b. spiritual truth which gives them courage,
(ii) The communities we serve will benefit as we send more men to them with Food, Medical, and humanitarian aid.
(c) Where will it take place? The cognitive studies will take place in our classroom settings at a 1:12 teacher: student ratio. The classroom education will be comprised of student teacher training. The training will include: Multimedia presentations, guest lecturers, guided discussions, self-study, and teacher lead study. The experiential studies will take place in our acreage. In the great outdoors we will teach the skills portion of the training.
(d) When will it begin? Immediately upon property acquisition, we will begin our training. we have 157 hours of curriculum set and ready for immediate teaching, training, and equipping.
(e) How long will it take? We have 157 hours of curriculum design to be taught in several increments. The shortest classroom session is 45 minutes. The longest skills training event is 21 days. The entire curriculum would take an investment of 36 months to experience
(f) What resources are needed? The immediate need is classroom and acreage. We have the teaching materials on hand. However, several of the teaching materials are expendables. Over the course of instruction we will be needing to replace items such as first aid and medical supplies, ropes, load bearing equipment, rappel hardware, land navigation devices, office supplies, computer equipment, ammunition, targets, cleaning supplies, safety equipment, vehicle tires and parts, student issued uniform items, food.
(g) What are the expected outcomes? The Timothy Group is empowering young men who will enter their school space, work place, or higher education and home environment and make an impact. Bettering others, functioning with high confidence placed in a loving, caring, empowering heavenly father who can help them solve life issues, cope with heavy emotional situations, operate in high stress environment. These men will offer hope and solutions to people around them.
(h) EVALUATION: We at the Timothy Group are serious about assessing our project’s success. We know what success means for our community. What follows is our plan to measure the success of our program.
(i) Formative plan will be to measure our process. The education will be judged by the students, the staff, and the consultants. All three entities will be given critic time to judge the educational content, the relational channels of learning, and the facilities. This critic phase will occur at the end of each course of study and at the conclusion of the school year. Additionally, the open door policy will always allow critique at any time throughout the year. A critique page is provided for your reference in the appendix.
(ii) Summative plan will be to analyze our product. Throughout the year we will judge a variety of characteristics and behavioral items of our students. An introduction and mid-term review will be held. At graduation a final review will be conducted. This will allow the student to know how they are growing toward the desired outcomes of the educational process. A feedback worksheet and staff review worksheet are provided for your reference in the appendix.
(iii) Every six months the staff will review the records and reports. Every six months the graduates will be given a report. This mean that throughout the year each month the graduate will be in contact with his mentor and the relationship will be the device that we use to measure the graduates maintenance of those Godly characteristics.How will it be evaluated? The expected outcomes will be evaluated with a three phase program. Phase one is the post educational survey. Each student will fill out a critique of our program upon graduation. The surveys are reviewed by our educational panel and revisions are made the curriculum as needed to improve our educational process. Phase two is the relational arm of the institution. Each instructor will remain in contact with the student for a period of one year. This will provide mentoring of the young man as he infuses the teachings into his life. Practical application of spiritual truth is more than just a motto; it is a way of life. Phase three is the formal data collecting we continually update our “where are the Now” role as we track the life impacting events that each young man experiences over a life time.
SUSTAINABILITY: It is critical that the Timothy Group educational process continue for the life of our students and the students to follow. Therefore it is imperative that the funding continue. The follow points clarify the plan to keep the project going after the life of the grant.
(i) The life of the Timothy Group in not finite, with start and end dates. Future funding is needed to ensure the legacy of the training and resulting ministry is perpetual.
(ii) The community service division builds capacity. That is, it contributes to the future self-sufficiency of our organization by expanding services that generate revenue. This revenue will not balance the liabilities of the ministry. However the annual $36,000.00 revenue will offset some of the costs.
(iii) The past, present, and future success of the ministry will attract other funders in the future--that’s right, we will keep fundraising for the project! The Timothy Group will not disappear after initial funding money runs out. We will continue to build Godly character into young men and we will continue to seek out and find the unreachable.
(iv) How will it be sustained after the current funding cycle? As a non-profit organization that pours into the lives of young men, we will always be dependent on the funding of exterior sources. Revenue from our community service division will fund portions of the program. For the most part the operation division will require large granting to upgrade technical equipment and life support equipment. The educational division will always need updating of the computer software and teaching materials. As our young men grow into productive occupations and become stable members of society, they will surely donate to the Alma mater that gave them an excellent start to a great life.
OUTCOMES: Our focused outcomes are SMART
(S) SPECIFIC - Each year our program will produce three teams of 8 graduates each to serve on three separate continents.
1. The specific tasks
- Medical training – Tested and Certified through the National Registry of EMTs
- Land Navigation Training

- Team Building
- Technical Skills Training
(M) We can easily MEASURE this outcome by sending the three teams to three continents once each year. The first team will be sent to the Middle East in the spring. The second team will be sent to the Far East is autumn, the third team will be sent to Central America in the winter. The best way to accomplish your outcomes. A training Pipeline exists to channel our students through the necessary training platform necessary for the qualification to meet the needs of the outcomes. This is the most economical and efficient way to ensure quality education is presented to the students. The hands on training and personal interaction with instructors ensures focused adherence to the material and complete understanding.
(A) With the current schedule, staffing and curriculum, our outcomes are ATTAINABLE. To achieve these outcomes we need proper funding.
(R) Our outcomes are RELATED directly to our organization’s mission and RELEVANT to our community’s need.
- Certified and experienced staff personnel will train specific phases of the pipeline.
- The students come from around the globe. In the past we have had students attend our events from: Panama, Brazil, England, Africa, Hawaii, Alaska, all 48 contiguous United States.
- The Team Dynamics division of the Timothy Group will need the following resources in order to provide exceptional training to the mission oriented students.
1) Classrooms and related educational material for the cognitive phase of training
2) Auditorium/Lecture facilities for the mass sharing of information
3) Acreage for the outdoor experiential phases of training
4) Warehouse for the storage of the training equipment
5) Lodging facilities for the housing of staff, student, visiting parents, etc.

History leading to the project:
Birthed from a desire to help those who cannot help themselves, to answer the call set out to be a father to the fatherless, to assist the window and help the protect the orphaned, we, The Timothy Group are uniquely gifted and trained to go where very few Christians have the ability to go. We are trained and experienced in skydiving, scuba diving. We are paramedics, rappel masters. We can land navigate, problem solve, communicate, teach, repair vehicles, and more. The singular ability that stands a Timothy Group graduate stands out from his peers in his willingness to impact this world with the spiritual truth revealed in God’s holy word. Nothing else matters. God is inviting the Timothy Group to go to parts of the world that are physically closed to others. Join the Timothy Group as we join God in His work for us. We will continue to train young men (9 years of age and older) in the characteristics of God. It is important for a young man to know who he is in Christ. It is crucial for a young man to know what Christ is capable of in him. I pray God never relieves us of this honor. In order to be successful we need to build a series of classrooms. We need parade fields and large tracks of land for our outdoor skill building events. Additionally, we will be replacing worn and outdated training gear.
God is asking our most experienced to join him abroad. Help us send them. We began this type of training in the year 2000. We have grown continuously in size and in maturity since then. The size growth has been in the student body. The size growth has been in staff also. Staff members grown from the graduating students. We have attracted exceptional instructors from such industry leaders as the United States Military, Certified and recognized leaders in technical skilled fields. The maturity growth has been in the skills developed and will as the spiritual maturity of our leadership and instructors. The Timothy Group became incorporated in the year 2009.
The mission of our organization is to:
(i) Attract young men, gain their attention, and teach them the word of God.
(ii) With the word of God as the foundation of all other teaching, give the young men experiences that will demonstrate to them the strength they possess and the length they can go to positively impact the world around them.
(iii) Building on this revelation, give them the opportunities that exist to impact the globe.
(iv) Send the young men (now trained, experienced, and motivated) to regions within America, and around the globe that others cannot reach.
(v) Through medical service, food relief, and construction efforts, minister to these unreachable people. Build trust and relationships with these unreachable people. Through the trusted relationship reveal the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our own shared experiences.
Rod and Staff Team – This is the missionary deployment aspect of the Timothy Group. We currently are working in three separate continents. For security purposes this document will name specify proper names, dates, places, or specific data. Central America is the introductory portion of our deployment phase. This trip is one week in duration. The graduates of our previous stated programs hike 25 miles into the mountains and minister to the local Indians with medical attention (Our graduates are doctors, paramedics, EMTs, and first responders). They also serve the community with food and supplies that were brought in on their backs (their ruck sack weight 65 pounds). Our students have been training to carry large loads over rough terrain at every event they attend throughout the previous year. They also provide physical construction to the village as needed. Once the relationships have been formed and trust gained the student can share with the locals their relationship with a loving God and their life stories. The result of previous trips is that many villagers receive Jesus as their savior. One chief accepted salvation. We visit this region repeatedly every year. There is no access to this village by conventional means. (no roads, no bridges, no airports…) Southeast Asia is the next phase of our deployment. There we deliver bibles, food, and medical supplies to people groups who are physically separated from the world by civil war, hostile borders, or restricted laws or religious or humanitarian persecution. We hike 150 miles in jungle, ford rivers, conduct search and rescue missions. One year we literally carried babies in our hands and youth on our backs as we ran from a village being attacked by helicopters firing rockets. Several of our members were captured and spent time in prison. They ministered to the other prisoners and the guards. Upon release one guard ask for a bible. We had no bible left at this point but once the extradition process was complete we drove twelve hour one way to get a bible into the hands of that guard. God is using relationships and physical ministry to reach into the hearts and minds of unreachable people groups. The timothy group is uniquely trained and qualified to do what God is asking us to do. We need your help to grow in these efforts. The Middle East is the most recent of our deployment phases. We are currently stationed on the front serving one of the host nation leaders. This group has 10,000 soldiers, four doctors, no casualty care unit, and one ambulance. We are the casualty care unit for as long as we can afford to stay in the region. We are only a few miles from a strategic town in the Middle East. Our medical team teaches officers combat first aid and issues them IFAKs (Individual First–Aid Kits). They are very pleased with are training. The students then teach their men what they know. During the rest and recuperation phase of the deployment we fellowship with the commander and his majors. We teach them how to use specific pieces of medical equipment. During the combat operations we are the medics at the casualty collection point while others go into the clearings. Occationally the locals ask why we are here. We share with them as Christians we to love others and serve them as Christ has loved and sacrificed for us. Funding is an issue please help the Timothy Group provide trained personnel (Doctors, Paramedics, EMTs), and serious medical equipment to meet the need
(f) Audience: The Timothy Group serves a wide variety of people groups at home within the United States of America and abroad.
(i) Within Columbus, Georgia our community service division serves economically challenged families with quality home and automotive repairs and maintenance services. Annually, this division serves 104 families. These families rely on the Timothy Group for quality home repairs. Without our services these families would be unable to afford the repairs. The repairs would remain undone. The homes would continue to deteriorate and the families would (in three very real cases) be without running water, heat in the winter, a water repellent roof over their head.
(ii) Within the United States of America our community consists of families with sons ages 9-29. We minister to these families through mentoring programs, mental and physical educational programs, and technical skill building programs. Annually we serve 1200 families the average family is 4 persons strong and they share our teaching with their extended families and friends. The potential exists for our programs to reach a total of 16000 individuals annually. These families rely on our services because we are the only organization who overt proclaim the lifesaving properties of Jesus Christ within our curriculum and provide practical application to the spiritual truth found in the Holy Bible. We develop the potential of God with the young men. We thus empowering these young men to impact the world with positive change. The young men cultivate positive, long lasting relationships with humans around them.
(iii) Outside the United States of America the Timothy Group serves displaced people groups due to armed conflict, hostile governments, and or natural disasters. The Timothy group also serves people groups that cannot be reach due to the physical nature of their existence. Conventional ministry group literally cannot access their environment. The timothy group is trained to find a way or make one. Annually, we serve 300 displaced persons. Currently we are in Southeast Asia, The Middle East, and Central America. This is where God wants us to be. We choose to trust Him to provide and go despite lack of funds. We train our missionaries as Emergency Medical Technicians as well as tactical and wilderness medicine, knowing this will come in useful on the mission field.
Our graduates embrace the vision for the Timothy Group to go global and apply the training to serve the oppressed and unreached in hard to reach and risky locations. To do what others are not able or willing to do.
1) We serve the multi-ethnic people groups in humanitarian aid capacity in order to bring help, hope, and love, to all people groups under oppression in conflict zones. Our work began in Southeast Asia and has expanded into the Middle East, and Central America. Our obedience is to go where no one else can go. This calling is living in the will of God. Therefore, we have no reason to fear.
2) God opened the door to go help with a crisis in the Middle East. Our deployments are a very trying season for our graduates. However, their eyes are opened to much deception. They realize how much we are not wrestling against flesh and blood, but against principalities and spiritual warfare. They hold back tears as they cradle a sick 9 day old baby from a Muslim family that had just fled captivity. The family had not eaten in 3 days. We provide them fresh food and water and pray for them. They constantly thank us for coming to help. All we offer is a presence there, desiring to be a presence of Christ’s love.
3) Our missionary teams travel to very intense environments. They see and experience things that will impact them for a very long time. Our ministry prepares their heart for such occasions. They see evil and deception that most humans do not comprehend. They see people hurting in ways that should not exist. Our teams come face to face with death; physically and spiritually. They see how gripping the power of satan is. They are trained and experience levels of spiritual warfare that most humans are not prepared for. They witness and realized how much most Americans take for granted, from Christ’s love, to the tiniest of comforts. Our teams minister to the conflicted, perplexed, and outcast. They themselves volunteer to be worn out physically, mentally, and spiritually. They are living sacrifices so that others may live to know their Creator.
4) In South East Asia we live in the jungles and train ethnic team and conduct relief missions. Inside the jungles of Southeast Asia over a forty day period we provide relief to displaced people groups. Our teams conduct a training seminar to teach teamwork, discipline, and technical skills. This training empowers the ethnic men and women in tactics they can use to bring help, hope, and love and shed the light of the gospel to oppressed people groups. During our time on mission, we conduct vacation bible school type programs for the village children, and sometimes villagers walk for three hours to come to our programs! We pass out supplies, conduct recons of hostile forces camps, and interview villagers to discover their needs and any human rights violations by the hostile forces. The genuine love of God we could show these people is gladly received. Our packs weigh anywhere from 45-65 pounds traveling all on foot through the mountains and jungle somewhere between 100-150 miles. Our missionaries speak in Church to the villagers about the hope we have in Christ and how perfect love casts out fear. We conduct interviews in the villages concerning what the medical needs, Church needs, and school needs are for the village. We build relationships with the ethnics and villagers and serve them and love them as Christ does. We pray for these people. Many times we see that the villagers cannot get food or supplies as the hostile forces cut off their resources. God empowers the Timothy Group to always get through and through His strength and provision deliver enough to meet their needs and feed their families. We are very grateful the Timothy Group training provides our deployment teams spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally and socially to be qualified to serve in such capacity.
5) We ask for your continued prayer. Pray for the conflicts in our communities to lessen. That people will be turned to Christ. That people will not become discouraged. Pray the next generation will see peace, not of man, but of Christ. We ask for your prayers for the persecuted Church here in our communities.
The Timothy Group models biblical masculinity to fathers and sons alike in order to mentor young men for life success. Our training programs develop solid, unwavering character in faithful young men aged 9 on up. These young men make decisions based on biblical truths. These decisions bring glory to God. These young men will lead their peers and subordinates with Christian values, behavior, and morals. The Timothy Group will train and equip the graduate so as to be an asset to disaster response as well as search and rescue efforts. Their proficiencies will include and are not limited to tactical skills, vehicle and home maintenance, medical skills, leadership and team building skills. The Timothy Group strives to be a credentialed teaching institution.
Our vision for the future of the Timothy Group is the creation of a University. This is a physical space where young men can gather and learn from mature and experienced Christians. This university will use art and science to empower the young men of America to influence their surrounding with positive, meaningful, long lasting relationships. These relationships and the confidence and experience behind them will touch human life for the better. These young men will have the confidence, the training, and the resources to make spiritual, mental, physical, emotional, and relational improvements to humans around them. The niche for the Timothy Group graduate is that all of this change will be directed to people groups who have been forgotten, never known about or cut off from the world by war, natural disaster, or lack of infrastructure. Our graduates will:
Go where no one can go.
Do what no one wants to do.
Be who God alone has planned.
They will find a way or make one.
They will do this of their own accord because they are brave enough to be obedient to the call that God has placed on them.
The long-term impacts of our work will be accomplished though human interaction. We have the vision to train, equip, and sustain a legion of men who will impact this globe with positive relationships. Our community is: The human male, small town America, and Unreachable places around the globe. We will impact these communities in the following ways.
The Human Male: Will be Spiritually Fierce, Physically Fit, Mentally Invincible, Emotionally Dependable, Relationally Faithful.
Small Town America will benefit from the Timothy Group Graduate in the positive atmosphere which surrounds the man. Wither the young man joines the workforce, goes to college, jojs the military, or starts his own business, he has the ability to impact all humans he encounters with the truth of the situation, the problem solving skills to overcome, the network and resources to achieve the needed results.
The unreachable people groups will receive the care they need because the Timothy Group graduate has been trained, equipped, and s to reach them with the food, medical attention, relief supplies needed for the specific situation.
Please assist The Timothy Group to acquire property and funding. The property is needed to establish a trusted home site for families to bring their children for quality training programs. The funding is necessary to pay our long time staff members who have paid for the success of the programs thus far. The funding is necessary to maintain existing gear. The funding is necessary to purchase needed future supplies, materials, and labor. The funding is necessary to purchase transportation to our foreign mission fields.
The importance of our projects is realized in the development of young men across America. Their confidence, their skills, their human spirit are all brought to life in our training. Their ability and desire to serve their fellow human at home and abroad is actualized in the search for and the rescue of humans around the globe. They serve natural disaster victims here in the states. They rescue human trafficking victims here in the United States. They deliver lifesaving food, medical and supplies to people groups around the globe who cannot fend for themselves.
Please, empower The Timothy Group to train, equip, and send spirit filled young men to our nations devastated victims and our globes unreachable people group. I lose sleep praying for wisdom as I plan strategies that will raise the proper support to purchase adequate property, hire the spirit filled and blessed staff to write and execute wonderful life changing curriculum, build the mentally stimulating facilities to house our hungry students, purchase the needed supplies that will be sent to help heal a world full of crying babies that have lost both of their parents and need someone to take them to safety and protection. We desire to raise a legion of young American Men who will answer the call to be a voice for the silent. These young men can stand courageously in the gap for those who have been beaten down too low. These young men can lend a helping hand to those who have lost all hope. These young men will life as an example for all around them to follow. These young men will go where no one else can go and do what no one else wants to do in regions where no one wants to go for a people no one knows exists. Help us to raise these men.
In order for the Timothy group to be successful in the raising of these young men we need property, staff, facilities, supplies and material. The acreage needs to be rough, unmanaged, not worthy of construction. This land will be used to teach land navigation, obstacle courses, rappel towers. The land will house our staff facilities, our schoolrooms, our maintenance facilities. The staff already exists we merely need to be able to pay them in order to have a permanent, consistent training capability. The supplies and materials will be used to teach our students which will become our missionaries and our future staff, and distribute to our communities. Our communities are those people here in the states that have become separated from society by natural disasters or other calamities. Our communities are those people outside the united states that have become separated from the world by disasters, wars, natural barriers, etc.
With your assistance life on earth can be improved for people who need it. With a permanent location and dedicated staff we will have the facilities and faculty to teach young men life saving techniques. The men will have the techniques required to reach our communities. Their service will literally save people from harm, disaster, devastation, and life threatening environments. More importantly the souls of those people will be restored. Their emotional and mental well-being cared for and their will reestablished.
Without your assistance we will be unable to make a difference.

Section 6.02 Key staff bios
The executive staff is comprised of three men: the president, the secretary, and the treasurer.
(a) The president, Bruce Stansbury, Major (ret), USAF is uniquely qualified to lead the discipleship program designed to empower our generation with the tools and resources to face today's challenges head on.
During his 20-year military career, Mr. Stansbury was involved with a diverse mixture of units, most notably with the Navy Seals, Special Forces, Army Rangers, Central Intelligence Agency, and Special Air Service. As a Military Special Operations Officer, he led teams into combat in both Afghanistan and Iraq. He knows the value of cohesion and is passionate about teaching that to The Timothy Group students. Mr. Stansbury demonstrates the critical need to build effectual teams - not just groups of individuals. Mr. Stansbury shares a particular story of a firefight in Afghanistan that illustrates the importance of trust, faith, obedience, sacrifice, grace, and rescue.
Mr. Stansbury was born in Houston Texas. He spent most of his formative years in central Virginia. There he met his high school sweet heart, Laura Sykes. They married in 1984. He enlisted the United States Air Force in 1986. His son, Noah, was born in, Mildenhall, England in 1988. His daughter, Megan, was born in Abilene, Texas, in 1990.
While still on active duty Mr. Stansbury enrolled in the Airman's Education and Commissioning Program. He graduated Florida State University in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology and three minors (Computer Science, Mathematics, and French). From Florida he moved to Alabama where he attended Air Force Officer Training School graduated with Military Distinction as a Second Lieutenant.
During his career he deployed often. Some of his operations include: Libya - Eldorado Canyon, Panama - Just Cause, Saudi Arabia - Desert Express/Shield/Storm, Kuwait - Vigilant Warrior, Lucky Sentinel, Egypt - Bright Star, Horn of Africa, Thailand, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Oman, - Enduring Freedom, Iraq - Iraqi Freedom.
His awards include the Bronze Star Medal, several Joint, Army, and Air Force Commendation Medals, Educator of the year, Company Grade Officer of the year, and the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians.
At the Air Force Squadron Officer College he taught classes in History, Leadership, Supervision, Communications, Team building, and Problem Solving at the graduate level. At the Air University he lectured to 500+ audiences in Leadership, Management, Strategic Planning, and Teambuilding at the post-graduate level.
Mr. Stansbury now resides in Midland, Georgia with his wife. Their Daughter is in missionary training in Louisiana. Their son is on staff at an Episcopal Church in Pennsylvania. Mr. Stansbury has studied God's Word and drawn many parallels between specific scriptures and his experiences as a special operator. Equipping, training, and resourcing our young men to do great exploits for their family, community, and region are a mandate that Mr. Stansbury takes very seriously. Mr. Stansbury is dedicated to the mentoring of young people as the President of The Timothy Group, Inc.
(b) Our Treasurer is Mr Bryan Stewart. Bryan Stewart was born in Texas and grew up in Louisiana. The oldest of three children, Bryan was homeschooled and graduated with his Bachelor degree from Gulf Coast Bible Institute and Seminary. He went on to Seminary to get his Masters and Doctorate degree. Bryan has always had a heart for leading young men towards godly character. It was in 2000 that he took steps forward with his brother Will to put plans for Challenge into effect. Under the umbrella of TeenPact, Challenge was begun, an all male leadership school focusing young men on character and team building. The mission of this leadership school, then as it is now, is to motivate men for Christ. From its humble beginnings in Commerce, Georgia to the pines in Beauregard, Alabama to the red clay of Fort Benning, Georgia, Challenge continues to mentor young men to be serious about their faith and be strong warriors for Christ. In 2005, Bryan met Erika Engen of Seattle, Washington and they were married in February, 2006. They have one son and enjoy raising him to be the strong young man God desires. In 2009, when The Timothy Group was incorporated, Bryan took on the role of Treasurer. He has held all ranks and positions within the staff. He is a key element in our leadership and his prayer time and ability to share insight with the staff has been a key element in keeping the Timothy group in the very center of God’s will.
(c) Our secretary is Mr. Joseph Schalchlin.
It's Monday Oct 6th 2003 and a 14 year boy waits under a tree with about 40 other young men who are all clothed in darkened and camouflaged colors. What are they waiting for? The start of CHALLENGE (one of The Timothy Group week long events). How is it going to start? No one really knows, but rumors abound.
The boy has mixed feelings. On one side he is glad to be there. On the other he is already getting homesick even though his dad is there and will be spending the week with him. The boy has no idea what he has gotten himself into. In a little while Challenge will start and amidst firecrackers and commanding, booming, voices he will be face to face with a sharp Staff that demand respect and obedience. They will seem to be made of iron.
Throughout the week the boy will learn many things. Among these he will learn navigation, rappelling, and how to tackle obstacle courses. He will also learn many things on a Spiritual level. He will learn how to be Godly man and leader.
Once he will be near tears from the stress of the week, but he will emerge on Saturday stronger and more determined than ever.
Who is this boy? His name is Joseph Schalchlin. If you would have told him that he would one day be on the Staff for Challenge and even be leading Challenge Staff teams he would not have believed you, but here he is by God's grace more involved then ever.
After his first Challenge experience Joseph decided to come back for some more in 2004, and then was able to attend CHALLENGE EXTREME in 2005. In 2006 he got a call from Bryan Stewart asking him to staff Challenge. Joseph was stunned, but gladly accepted. He has staffed every Challenge event since.
Joseph comes 3rd in a family of 7 children and a mom and dad that love each other. His mother homeschooled him for which he is grateful. His father is first and foremost a dad. His dad is also a pastor, missionary, pilot and medical doctor.
Joseph gave his life to Jesus at a young age. He remembers to this day the church sign on which he stood when he did. Ever since his goal in life has been to honor God.
Joseph's experience in life is limited. At age 7 he lived with his family in Costa Rica for about 10 months for language school. After this he moved with his family to Guatemala where his father fulfilled God's call on him to spread the gospel. They stayed in country for over a year before returning to the States. Over the years Joseph has been able to return with his father on week long trips to Guatemala.
Joseph also has experience in teaching and giving devotions at church, as well as leading the young men's group.
He currently lives in Arkansas working as an EMT and pastoring the youth at his church.
Joseph's desire is to see young Christian men become strong and faithful leaders. Leaders who are willing to live for, fight for, and even die for the Truth. The Truth of God's Word, and the Truth of God's Son, Jesus. Joseph sees the Timothy Group as a means to train young men into fearless Warriors for Christ.
The idea of CHALLENGE originated with Bryan. Joseph is our longest participating member! Their continued involvement represents exactly what our mentoring goals are for the Timothy Group. These two have been with Mr Stansbury since the beginning of his involvement with CHALLENGE. In addition we have a team of nine advisors. With these men, God is feeding our minds and hearts His direction. In keeping with Proverbs 11:14, it is vital to have a variety of input and viewpoints for accountability and encouragement as well as the fellowship of spiritually mature adult males that embody the beliefs of what The Timothy Group teaches.
