Our Pastor Mark Received The Timothy Award at May 2018 District Assembly
The Timothy Award was established in 1995 by the Nazarene Youth International General Council to recognize — in a tangible way — outstanding service, sacrifice, and personal commitment to youth through NYI at the local, district, regional, or general level. The Timothy Award embodies the words of the Apostle Paul, who recognized Timothy’s commitment to the needs of others: “I have no one else like him, who takes a genuine interest in your welfare” (Philippians 2:20). It was Timothy who had been encouraged to “not let anyone look down upon you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12, NYI’s theme verse). His legacy was his genuine interest in the welfare of others, a description given by the one who knew him best.
