Entrusted is an initiative aimed at stimulating spiritual growth in the men’s ministry of the Toronto Church of Christ.
“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.” 2 Timothy 2:2
Paul’s instructions to Timothy, “entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others” safeguard the integrity of discipleship and invite men to be actively involved in maturing each other. This is what the Entrusted Initiative is all about. By inspiring and training, we are convinced the men’s ministry will continue to grow in Christ, mobilize to serve, build camaraderie among the men, be committed to leading and influencing others for Christ.
You can trace Paul’s inspiration back to Jesus’ words in Mark 1:17 – “Come follow me.” Inviting. Simple. Intriguing. Powerful. Life-changing. Jesus called people to a relationship and partnership with God and with each other. His vision lived on in the lives of those who followed Him. They, too, carried on the same message and mission and poured themselves into the next generation of disciples, setting in motion a perpetual cycle of disciples making and maturing disciples.
As we see throughout the bible and have also seen in the Toronto Church, one inspired soul elevates another and in turn builds a community of men untethered, compelled and privileged to be ENTRUSTED with the Gospel of Christ.
