It all starts with us! There are people in our lives who are longing for authentic relationships and the truth of Jesus Christ. Whether sharing our faith with a neighbor locally or getting involved in Wooddale Worldwide to help share our faith globally, there are lots of ways to take your next step.
Choose 7 people you know who need the hope of Jesus. As God leads:
1. Pray for their needs and for their hearts to be opened.
2. Talk with them about their lives and family and get to know them.
3. Serve them in simple ways like shoveling the driveway or mowing the grass.
4. Ask about their life story and be a good listener.
5. Share how God has changed your life or invite them to Wooddale.
Your neighborhood is a great place to start in sharing your faith. View the attachment below for simple ways to love your neighbors.
Through local and global partnerships in 38 countries, Wooddale seeks to lessen suffering and extend the hope of Jesus here, near and far.
You can get involved by:
One of Wooddale’s global partners is The Timothy Initiative. Through this partnership, we help plant churches and train leaders who in turn help rescue those trapped in human trafficking and offer hope to widows and orphans. We have helped train nearly 300 leaders we call “Pauls” who have planted churches in their local communities. The Pauls have then trained more than 4,000 people we call “Timothys” based on the model from the Bible. A newer follower of Jesus who wants to be trained is called a “Titus” and is trained by a Timothy.
The Timothy Initiative provides a 24-month theological training program through which one Paul trains and mentors 15-25 Timothys who each train one or two others. Wooddale Church accompanies this theological training with additional instruction we developed called How to Lead the Church. We’re grateful for all who support this partnership and help make it possible to bring the hope of Jesus Christ to people in need around the world.
