July 22-27, 2024
Christ the King Vineyard
Cleveland, Ohio

Paul met Timothy when Timothy was very young. Immediately Paul saw his potential and spent years investing in Timothy’s gifts, training him as a leader, and releasing him into meaningful ministry. Project Timothy’s goal is to inspire, motivate, train, and release a group of young leaders in the Vineyard!

What to Expect

Throughout the week of Project Timothy, we will have regional and national speakers offering leadership and ministry training. Our teachings are both motivational and practical—by the end of the four year track, all students will have been trained in: giving a short teaching (depending on their year); leading a small group; organizing and leading an outreach; praying the 5-step model over people; and more! We also train and provide opportunities for personal reflection and time with God. Each night starts with a time of worship, followed by a teaching, and extended time for prophetic and prayer ministry. Students will conduct several community outreaches with the goal of igniting a lasting passion for outreach in their own communities. Of course you can't have PT without fun thrown in the mix! There will be a variety of recreational opportunities for students to build lasting friendships with Vineyard Youth from across the Great Lakes Region and beyond, including a trip to Cedar Point to round out the week of hard work and being equipped.

Application Process

Project Timothy (PT) is a leadership development program designed for incoming High School (9th-12th) students who are willing to commit to serving their local church.

Requirements for PT include a short, written essay, a recommendation from a Youth Leader of their choice, and a commitment to serve in their local church for one year.
