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.

Roadmap for Discerning Your Call

With so many career options and so many resources, where do you start?  The Timothy Circle guides young people through easy-to-complete steps to help them discern the direction God is nudging them. View the demo or watch a video about how it works!

Curated Resources

Cut through the noise and find websites, magazines, podcasts and videos that go deep and actually help you (or a young person in your life) figure out how to hear God’s voice.

Event Search for Young People

Search our database of camps, conferences, mission trips, and more from all over the country to find just the right opportunity to meet friends, gain experience, and grow in your faith.

Mentor Training

Adults, you have valuable experience and insight to offer young people. Gain the confidence to share a conversation about faith and career with a young person.

Make Connections

Collaborate with and learn from other ministries that support young people! Churches, camps, campus ministries, and other organizations can share resources and ideas.

Culture of Call Training

Make it clear that your church or ministry cares about the lives of young people in your midst. Learn what makes a difference, and what makes less of a difference than you think.

What does this cost?

In a word…. Nothing!

We’ve organized the site to give you access to customized resources, activities, and connections.  Find the area that fits you best below!

  • Young people, parents, and other supporting adults can participate in the Timothy Circle for free by simply exploring the site or creating an account.
  • Those who complete the Mentor or Culture of Call trainings ($45 each) are given a free user account that gives them access to additional, targeted resources.
  • Organizations with events and programs to offer young people pay $100 to officially join the Timothy Circle, which helps support the entire network and keep it free for young people and their parents.

Young People

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.

Ministry organizations that work with young people

Too often, we become trapped in our own siloes and are cut off from the rest of the church. Imagine the collaborative power and energy that comes from being connected to other ministries like yours, local churches, parents of young adults, and other organizations that work with young people.  The Timothy Circle helps you do all that and more.
