Winter 2014

Greetings in the name of our Commander in Chief, Jesus Christ!

Since our last newsletter God has opened a door to minister to the Military community.  We were excited to be a part of a city wide function.  We took eight team members to a Family Appreciation night in downtown Columbus and presented our program to the men and women of the Fort Benning community.  We shared food, rappelling demonstrations and fellowship with a crowd over 600 strong. It was an honor to serve in this capacity.                   

 – blessings!  Bruce Stansbury, Timothy Group President

Help Us, Help Them

Matthew Chapter 6 Insight
Our Heavenly Father is worthy of all honor and praise.  He is to be glorified by us always. God has a specific way of getting things done.  The Timothy Group is called to be involved in this process.  We want God's will to be done - NOW - ON THIS EARTH. His will is done in heaven by speaking it into existence.  We have His authority to get His will done on earth just as it is in heaven.  He gives us guidance and direction.  If we would be bold enough to obey His leading, we would be delivered from evil.  God's way is best.  God's power is the ultimate.  God gets the glory.  We should not assume any of His glory.  We are blown away by the fact that God has always been, is NOW, and will be forever. He invites us to join Him in His work.  The Timothy Group mission is to raise a legion of men who will confidently answer His call.  We are willing.  We are ready.   We need your help to go.  Please send us!  Let's Go!  Please consider taking this opportunity to make a tax-deductible donation that will help others know their creator and join Him in bringing His kingdom to this earth.  The Timothy Group, Inc. leads the way in encouraging young men to enjoy the benefits of biblical insight, practical application of spiritual truth, fitness, nutrition, and training. We manage to do this work thanks to the kindness and generosity of supporters like you. Please send us in 2014. Thank you very much!  May God bless your New Year!

Leadership Spotlight:  A Timothy Group Alumni

Thank you for everything the Timothy Group has taught me, and how well it has prepared me for my future! All the programs that I participated in, offered by the Timothy Group, have taught me so much about taking initiative. To this day, there is nothing that has been more life changing than my first Challenge Basic. I remember the first day like it was yesterday. I was being changed and pushed to my limits; and I loved it. Thank you so much for the standards that are held of the recruits at Challenge. Those standards have carried into so many areas of life, especially ROTC. I have just received a full ride Army ROTC scholarship to UAB. In addition, I am spending the majority of this summer in Russia. I also have a good shot at airborne and air assault. None of this would have been reachable if I did not somehow stand out from other cadets. I came into the ROTC with a sounder mindset than most, a decent physical training score, good grades, and general military knowledge and skills - all of which were built upon what was taught to me by the Timothy Group. On many occasions officers and cadets have asked me where I learned certain skills, and time after time, I tell them about the Timothy Group. Thank you for Challenge Basic, Challenge Extreme, CST, The opportunity to staff Basic, and last but definitely not least Survival Water Evasion Training. training and preparation that you offer is priceless. Thank you!! God has truly used you in a great way!! – E. D.

2014: A Year of Preparation

Formulation, Training, and Provision: God has been clear with the mission of The Timothy Group.  Our leadership and our students have been obedient, diligent, and committed to their training.  As you can see from the plans for the year, we are in need of resources and funding.  For one team member to be ready for deployment he must successfully complete: Accelerated Free Fall, SCUBA, Survival, Offensive driving, Spiritual Readiness, Self-Protection, and several scenario based events.  These training venues are an awesome investment for the young man.  The victims who are waiting for this young man to be obedient to God's call and rescue them will be forever grateful for this training.  Please know that God has called for us as a community to give into His kingdom.  His plan for the Timothy Group is to raise a legion of young men who will answer His call with a confident voice.  We are willing.  We are ready.   We need you to send us!

Build Community, Help Us Network: We need access to more students.  Invite us to speak at your church, youth groups, boys clubs.  Share our information with your Pastors, Community Leaders, Local Sheriff, Fire Marshall, Rescue Squads.  We would love to come share the vision God has given the Timothy Group about modeling adult Christian values in the present darkness.  Practically applying the truths that are found in God's word.  Our men and boys need us to lead the way.  Follow us as we follow Christ!   The Timothy Group, PO Box 1701, Fortson GA 31808, 706-570-5719, bruce@timothygroup.org
