The Method

Disciples Making Disciples.
Churches Planting Churches.
Leaders Developing Leaders.

The Timothy Initiative believes the best way to fulfill the Great Commission is by making disciples who make disciples and planting churches that plant churches. 

Through TTI’s training, local leaders equip Christians with the necessary tools, resources, and strategies to reach their nations for Christ.

These churches meet in homes, on mountaintops, under trees, and in river beds. We don’t focus on building structures, so it is sustainable, reproducible, and cost-effective.

3 Phase Process

TTI’s training has three phases that center on spiritual multiplication, obedience-based discipleship, and mentoring. During the two-year training, each church planter is expected to plant at least one multiplying church in their region. 

Initiate

 A local, seasoned church planter and trainer leads a group of disciple makers through TTI’s introductory book, Disciples Making Disciples.

This phase takes approximately four months and has a strong emphasis on evangelism, disciple making, and church formation.  

01

Establish

Disciple makers go through the entire Bible using TTI’s ten-book training materials. During this phase, they share their faith, plant churches, and raise up other believers to make disciples and plant churches. 

This phase takes 12-15 months.

 

02

Expand

The church planting trainer continues to walk alongside disciple makers as they grow in their leadership, maturity, and move their churches towards sustainability.

The church planting trainer also identifies disciple makers who have the calling and competencies to become church planting trainers. 

This phase of intentional leadership development lasts at least six months.

03

Exponential Impact

Here is a real-life look at the disciple making process. 

Fregy knew that to reach his nation for Christ, he needed to make disciples who make disciples and plant churches that plant churches. That’s why he partnered with TTI and began planting churches and empowering others to do the same. One of the men he trained was Biju. Biju planted several churches. Because of what Fregy modeled, Biju invested in disciple makers like Vijay. Vijay mentored Ramlal, who in turn trained disciple makers S. Kumar, Amit, and Surrender. These three men carried on the disciple making movement, imparting the value of multiplying disciples and churches to those they trained. 

Because of Fregy’s commitment to making disciple makers, exponentially more churches were planted than if he did it alone. That’s the power of disciples making disciples!
