In the "1 Timothy Bible Study" in the LifeChange Series by the Nav Staff, Paul wrote to Timothy in Ephesus, encouraging him in his faith, and affirming his leadership and abilities. Timothy’s work was overwhelming, so Paul gave him a set of guidelines for choosing leadership within the congregation to help Timothy in his ministry. These guidelines provide today's church with the most thorough instructions for choosing strong and godly leaders. And they offer help for Christians today wanting to become effective leaders in the church. Included in this study are 10 lessons, study aids, discussion questions, and a leader's guide.
