What is the Timothy Circle?
The Timothy Circle is a network of adults, churches and ministries joined together to nurture faith and calling in young people.
It’s also an online resource for young people (ages 14-24) trying to discern God’s voice and direction in their lives.
Resources for every person in the network
God calls us all in many ways, and we all have a part to play in helping young people respond to God’s call. The Timothy Circle supports each player.

Who’s behind the Timothy Circle?
The Timothy Circle is a project of the Richard and Julia Wilke Institute for Discipleship, which has roots in United Methodism. We aim to be a resource to all Christians, regardless of denomination.

Figuring out what to do with your life can be overwhelming, and you have enough on your plate already. The Timothy Circle provides the support and resources young Christians deserve so you can explore the best options for a life that blends your faith with your passions. We define ‘young person’ as someone 14-24 years old.
We’re constantly creating resources to help you support the young people in your life as they navigate their faith journey. Talking with your teenage son or daughter about their call? Want to know what you can do to support your child? We can help.
