The  mission of the Timothy Project GiG is 

"to share the gospel and love of Christ with people of diverse cultures

and to facilitate their development as totally devoted followers of Christ. "​

​​In the Beginning

Timothy Project was founded in 1985 as an Illinois 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization 

by the beloved Wheaton College (IL) football/track coach and professor

Donald A. Church.

In 2008, with the retirement of Don Church, the current Board took responsibility to carry out Timothy Project's mission.​
