About Timothy Two
Timothy Two Instructors equip pastors and ministry leaders in the majority world who do not have access to formal theological training. We utilize a small-group-teaching-and-discussion method in which participants, after studying the lesson, develop their own culturally appropriate illustrations and applications. This not only trains them in systematic and practical theology, but also equips them to train others.
- Our Calling: 2 Timothy 2:2, “…what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”
- Our Mission: To train national pastors and church leaders in developing nations in the essential doctrines of the faith and to equip them to train others.
- Our Vision: To see the global church of Jesus Christ equipped for the effective ministry of the gospel throughout the world, irrespective of geographical, cultural, financial or political challenges.
- Our Curriculum: Timothy Two Curriculum: Growing in Grace Series Table of Contents lists the theological topics we teach in the four workshops.
- Financial Accountability: Timothy Two is an evangelical, Reformed ministry, organized as a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt, non-profit missions organization, accredited by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).

Jean Prevald, Dominican Republic
“Thank you to God for what he has done in my life. And I want to thank Pastor Wisly Denis who is always in our favor to increase day by day our knowledge in spiritual things. And thank you Pastor Dan for coming to clarify many things about God. Your coming isn’t in vain. We all benefit in many ways from the Holy Spirit through you. May God bless all your family.”
Rosa Lina Palacios, El Salvador
“The seminars have been a great blessing to my life and my family. I have a lot to teach my little daughter, who is now 6 years old, about walking with God and about the work of the Lord. It has been a great tool to teach in my church with the young people. In fact there are new youth leaders that are being equipped with this knowledge though this material. I have been using it also to train teachers from Sunday school in our church. By this means we are spreading the teaching we have received and the teachers can share this with the children they have in Sunday school.”
