    Paul and Timothy: Developing a Leader
    2010 Roberts, Graham
    The story of the church reveals that the apostles and Paul provided the first generation of leadership. Where did the second generation come from? The relationship between Paul and Timothy exemplifies the passing on of the baton to the second generation. Selected by Paul, Timothy shared in ministry over many years, and had the opportunity to learn the teachings of the faith and share in the responsibilities of ministry and leadership. Their relationship offers an example of the development of a leader in the early church as seen from the differing perspectives of Paul, Acts and the Pastoral letters. By exploring these perspectives on their shared ministry: the way the relationship was expressed by Paul, the activities that Timothy engaged in, and how the early church understood the relationship; the nature and growth of Timothy’s leadership is evaluated and described in terms of some current models of leadership.
