As young men who are in the midst of beginning families studying the Word of God (whether in an academic manner or in our own personal study), we do know that we want to preach the Gospel! We know that we have been commanded by God to preach the Word and do the work of an evangelist (2 Tim 4:2-5), to guard sound doctrine closely (1 Tim 1:3; 4:16), to fight the good fight of faith (1 Tim 6:12) and to not let anyone look down on us because we are young, but to set as an example for believers in speech, life, love, faith and purity (1 Tim 4:12). We want to see the future Church of Jesus Christ filled with Bible-loving, doctrine-guarding, Christ-exalting, sheep-loving wolf-killing elders.

We Want to Begin Preparing Now for Then

We want to call our generation to join with us in preparing to become elders in the Church of Jesus Christ, whether in America or in a distant land to an un-reached people. We want young preachers to arise in the pulpit. We want young Timothy’s to set out and plant churches. We want Timothy’s to give their lives to a foreign people in a foreign land. We want to come under well-trained, seasoned men of God who have wisdom beyond our ministry experience and train us in their ways. We want to fan into flame the gift God has given us and have that gift tested, approved and sharpened by older men. We want to help move our generation to, what we believe, is a Paul and Timothy model of mentoring.

And We Know We’re Not Alone.

We know you’re out there. We know we’re not the only ones who have this desire. We know God is in the process raising up a remnant that loves Christ, loves His Word and loves His sheep. So, we want to hear from you in order to gather together and move as one towards the goal of preparing to become elders for the future Church of Jesus Christ. Tell us your situation.  Tell us the calling you’ve received. Join the movement.

Preach the Word.

    Count me in. I have felt called by God to pastor, preach, and teach and, as my wife and I search for a new church, one of the leading qualities we are looking for is a church where the leadership sees as vital to the health of the church the raising up of qualified men to be elders

  2. Carey McPherson Says:

    Great to hear from you Chris!

    We will be praying for you and your wife as you seek to find a church.

    Blessings brother, and keep us posted so that we might know how to pray.
