We at Timothy’s Gift are very selective about those presenters we choose to work with. We feel it is very important that those who go into prisons to minister under the auspices of Timothy’s Gift are in agreement with our purpose and vision. Based on those parameters, we are pleased to introduce you to the current roster of Timothy’s Gift presenters:
The Old Testament Walk Thru the Bible Seminar is an interactive, historical and geographical look at the Old Testament. After the seminar, participants will have a clearer understanding of the life-changing themes and purposes of the Old Testament.
Each participant will mentally walk where Jesus walked, relive the birth and growth of the early church and journey with the apostle Paul to the ends of the earth!
This program shows the participants how their unique personality temperament fits together with other temperaments. Once they learn about themselves, they will then learn about others and most importantly, how to interact in harmonious healthy relationships.
There is no doubt that creativity is a skill that can be learned and enhanced. Anyone can nurture, renew and increase his or her creative skills by understanding how a few simple natural laws govern the creative process.
If you’ve only seen John Starnes on TV programs such as In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley, Bill Gaither’s Homecoming Friends, or The Jimmy Swaggart telecast from back in the 1980′s, you might not know that there is much more to this world-renowned gospel singer than his heart-stirring music. John is also a dynamic speaker who weaves his personal testimony and good humor throughout his concerts. Be prepared for a wonderful ministry opportunity!
John Schmid’s style of singing…a blend of country/folk/gospel, with a touch of the contemporary, has gained him audiences in a wide variety of setting, from prisons to embassies, high schools, nursing homes, churches, military bases, concert halls and living rooms! His honest, genuine voice is easy to listen to and his audiences are receptive to his message because of his humor, true life stories, love for people and a wide selection of songs!
Lauren Roman has a passion for the broken; a heart to encourage and uplift those in need by sharing Christ-centered hope. Even though Lauren was a “success” at just 19 with a major role on the daytime drama All My Children, she secretly struggled for years with depression and self-destructive behaviors. Her transformational journey from darkness into the light of forgiveness and freedom has not only changed her life, but has given her a profound connection with “the least of these.” Whether incarcerated, fighting addiction or suffering from a painful past… whatever the issue, Lauren’s empathy and compassion communicates Truth: the lasting life change and true freedom we long for is found only through faith. An accomplished singer and worship leader, she weaves music into her messages to go beyond the spoken word and reach straight to the heart. Her greatest desire is to love God and serve others by helping them embrace Galatians 5:1 freedom and experience life in Christ as a NEW creation… “the old has gone, the new is here!”
Performing well over 120 times per year, Ryan is one of the most popular, young ventriloquists in the country! Whether it’s his laugh-crazed family show, his dynamic corporate gigs or his presentation for inmates, there are two things his audiences have come to expect: a clean show and side-splitting comedy! Believing that laughter does, indeed, do good like a medicine, Ryan will give his audience a healing dose of it! Inmates, especially, enjoy Ryan and his cast of characters (friends) as many times, the laughter gives way to healing as he touches lives with a powerful presentation of the gospel message of Love!
