2 Timothy 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
Paul instructed Timothy to "commit to faithful men" what he had been taught, so that they (the faithful men) could teach others also. This is clearly defined for us in the Great Commission:
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
We are commanded to teach - win people to Christ, then to baptize, and lastly, to teach them to observe all things Jesus has commanded us. The Great Commission is not complete when we win someone to Christ. Nor is it complete when the new convert gets baptized. To fulfill the Great Commission, we must teach them what we have been taught. We used to call that "discipleship." It is also the missing piece of many churches.
Dr. Brandenburg has made it a priority to teach others what he has been taught. He has many decades of experience in teaching in Bible Institutes and Bible Colleges. He also has conducted worker training conferences in local churches, helping pastors equip their members to more effectively fulfill the Great Commission. He has written the curriculum for dozens of Institute courses as sell as books and booklets to help church members and full-time Christian workers in their work for God. He has written many helpful works to help Believers more effectively and systematically study the Bible.
The "timothy Institute of Biblical Studies" is the name given to the online video Bible Institute that Dr. Brandenburg is preparing. His plans call for a full three year program leading to a diploma in Biblical Studies. More details to come soon!
In addition to the Timothy Institute, Dr. Brandenburg is preparing a series of 8-10 minute videos to teach and discuss Bible doctrines snd Bible topics. These videos are designed to assist church member and soulwinners in the "discipling" of their new converts. You will be able to view these online and share them with their "disciples."
Another way to "prepare" Believers and Church Members is in the training meetings Dr. Brandenburg conducts in local churches. These meetings include:
- Setting Sail for Church Growth - Sunday School Teacher, Bus Worker, Children's Church worker training workshop.
- Soulwinning Training Meetings - Local Church Soulwinning Revivals, Teen "Project Soul Strike" soulwinning revivals.
- Staff Training Conferences - Teaching the staff members of local churches in the practical methods and ethics of ministry.
