1 & 2 Timothy and Titus give strategic instructions to church leaders. The next generation holds a vital position in the future of every family, institution, movement, or church - for leadership, vision, and life. The apostle Paul knew that the future of the Christian movement would depend on its leadership. Given the hostile environment of the Roman world and the advancing age of the apostles, the church would soon need new leaders to direct, guide, evangelize, and spread the Word. So Paul trained a new generation of church leadership and encouraged them to teach others as well. As you study these letters, watch Paul develop leaders of the early church, follow his example by passing the faith and leadership to the next generation, and learn how to structure your church.
