Join the legacy.
Timothy Team is a year-long experiential program geared to disciple and equip young people, through study and practice, with lifelong tools so that they may continually grow in their walk with Jesus Christ. It’s an intense year of deep, intentional growth in a team-based environment in an adventurous and fun setting. Come and see.
Timothy Team members are trained and certified to work with children and adults of all ages as Adventure Educators and Challenge Course Facilitators for our non-summer retreat business. The Timothy Team will lead groups through team-building exercises, high-ropes challenges, and over-the-top programming, all while putting into practice the lessons God is teaching you on the Team. The year is completed serving at one of our four summer camps as a leader among your peers, applying all that you’ve learned during the year.
T Bar M Camps is nestled in the heart of the Texas Hill-Country, where fun abounds and adventure is around every corner. As a Timothy Teamer, you’re a member of a team of people who agree to live life together for a year. Teams of the past have enjoyed spontaneous roadtrips, beach vacations, white-water rafting, spelunking, backpacking, rock climbing, hiking, kayaking … camp is your backyard and the Hill-Country is your oyster.
The Timothy Team’s curriculum is centered around Matthew 22:37-40.
Love God with all your heart, soul, and mind.
From our significance in Christ to a greater understanding of prayer and meditation, you will be able to choose tools that can be used throughout your lifetime. Weekly group discussions, mentor relationships, accountability, daily scripture reading, and in-depth spiritual discipline studies all contribute to a holistic curriculum designed to deepen your relationship with God.
Love your neighbor as yourself.
The second part of the curriculum concentrates on our relationship with others. From family to acquaintances, we explore the role we have as Christians to those around us. Topics include servant hood, evangelism, stewardship, spiritual gifts, missions and other relevant issues.
*All materials are supplied through the program.
As a part of our daily scripture readings, we look at God’s Word as a story, from the Garden all the way to our current lives and time in the world. As a part of that study, we travel to Israel, the Promised Land, and walk where Jesus walked. It’s within the setting of the Bible that we’re able to obtain a deeper understanding of God’s Word and apply it to our lives.**Please note the trip to Israel is not a guaranteed part of the curriculum. Though the year is spent in preparation for Israel, safety conditions are always considered right up to the day of travel.
In addition to the Israel trip, mission trips are taken during the year to bring the Gospel to a country where the vehicle of Camp is used to share Jesus’s love with His people. Teams in the past have visited South and Central American countries, African countries, and European countries. Where each team travels will be determined throughout the year as we discern where God is sending each unique team.
Experience the full richness of living life in community. Put into practice daily loving God and loving others. It’s alongside fellow believers, living life together as iron sharpening iron, dying to self, and putting others before yourself that leads to the immense growth that you’ll experience when you allow God to be Lord of your life. Experience this fullness in the T Bar M community and the greater New Braunfels community as we live life on life for the glory of God.
John 15:4-5 says
“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches, whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”
How do we truly abide? What does that mean and how does that look in our daily lives? We spend the entire year learning and doing just that, living in the soil of Godliness so that we receive from Him everything we need to produce fruit.
Following Biblical guidelines, the Timothy Team is a self-supported ministry. Unlike most discipleship programs where you raise your own support, the Timothy Team offers a compensation package for its team members. The package includes: monthly salary, room and board, health insurance, use of camp facilities, discipleship materials, vacation time, and an environment of love and excitement only found at T Bar M.
