Concept Paper for TIMAZI

  1. 1. The Trinity Fellowship Presents The Specially designed bulletin for the born again High School Student Straight and True
  2. 2. The Realities <ul><li>We are living in a generation where we have : </li></ul><ul><li>Demand for immediate gratification.  </li></ul><ul><li>Absence of long-term thinking about life and the world. </li></ul><ul><li>Motivated by feeling rather than truth </li></ul><ul><li>Wanting grown-up things without growing up   </li></ul><ul><li>Focusing on appearance rather than depth </li></ul>
  3. 3. Our passion <ul><li>Our hearts go out to these unsuspecting, uninformed band of students to reach them with the Gospel right into their schools. </li></ul><ul><li>Feeding our generation with substance as opposed to just fun-based activities that go no deeper than that – entertainment. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Our Philosophy <ul><li>Challenge students, rather than coddle them . </li></ul><ul><li>Inspire students to develop a biblical worldview. </li></ul><ul><li>Cast the big picture about Jesus and His Kingdom. </li></ul><ul><li>Engage Contemporary issues of their generation. </li></ul><ul><li>Be proactive rather than reactive. </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Objectives of <ul><li>To encourage and revive the born-again High School student. </li></ul><ul><li>To become an authoritative bulletin and sharpen the conscience of the Christian unions </li></ul><ul><li>To create a point of reference and guidance on confusing contemporary issues </li></ul><ul><li>A benchmark for the practical application of biblical truth in our context! </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Components of Discipleship basics : Mainly carried as main articles to expound on basics for a new believer. Going through establishing disciples in the foundational items that have gotten forgotten e.g. the trinity, rapture, overcoming temptation alongside lost disciplines like fasting, consistent bible reading, scripture memory, bible study etc
  7. 7. Components cont….. <ul><li>Testimonies from students : </li></ul><ul><li>We pick out outstanding heroes of faith stories and testimonies from students in our CUs. In a country where success is measured by the mean grade, we introduce the real measure of a man-the greatness of his soul </li></ul>
  8. 8. Components cont….. <ul><li>Character study through nature analogy: </li></ul><ul><li>A lot of wisdom lies in the ability to correlate nature lessons and our lives. Jesus used common animal world habits to illustrate character. This corner does an analysis of a particular animal that exhibits a certain character quality that the issue is analyzing and puts it into day to day living. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Components cont….. <ul><li>Cartoon illustration : The humorous cartoons speak to the students giving clues on how to respond practically to the message carried in the issue. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Components cont….. <ul><li>Counsel : Many students make decisions on crucial life issues based on street talk, peer pressure and the general notion that truth is relative. Pasta Pablo [a Timazi character] is there to respond to the pressing issues using scripture as the absolute authority. We receive questions on different issues and answer them in relevance to the main issue of every bulletin. </li></ul>
  11. 11. The Editorial Team <ul><li>is published by Trinity Fellowship, an inter-church non-denominational, not-for-profit, charismatic Christian society specializing in the presentation of the message of Jesus Christ, especially to the young people in the schools and colleges of Kenya. We spend our lives preaching, counseling, discussing, listening and praying with students. Therefore we write this bulletin from our encounters with the undercurrents in our schools today.. </li></ul>
