Timothy Awards


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. Recipients of the Timothy embody the words of the Apostle Paul in Philippians 2:20, “I have no one else like [Timothy], who takes a genuine interest in your welfare” (NIV).
Funds received for the payment of the Timothy Award over and above the cost of the award become a vehicle for the development of youth ministry around the world through the NYI Fund. This fund was established to provide a financial resource base from which global youth leadership training, youth evangelism, and resource development can be built.
