Paul, Timothy, and Podcasts

This sponsored post invites you to enjoy lively discussions with the most respected teachers from Westminster’s new MinistryNetwork.

Paul and Timothy enjoyed a special relationship. In 2 Timothy 1:4, Paul writes: “As I remember your tears, I long to see you, that I may be filled with joy.”

Paul didn’t just teach Timothy. He embraced his young spiritual son with care, honesty, and vulnerability. Timothy knew what made Paul, Paul. That’s true mentorship—a gift that many people in ministry lack.

We look up to the Paul-like teachers of today. We listen to their talks, follow their ministries, and read their books. In our celebrity-driven culture, these teachers often appear perfect and untouchable. It’s easy to forget Spurgeon’s words: “Is it not a curious thing that whenever God means to make a man great, He always first breaks him in pieces?”

Timothy had the privilege of witnessing the real person behind Paul’s apostolic persona. What if people today had a similar opportunity with modern teachers?

That’s the aim of the Ministry Network Podcast. Every week, our guests share their experience and provide a small window into their journey in ministry. Each episode is packed with moving theology, practical counsel, and real-life stories about the joys and trials of life in the church.

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents

    While today we tend to associate step-parents with divorce, in previous centuries they were almost exclusively associated with death and with either widow- or widowerhood. In an era in which lifespans were shorter and, therefore, a greater number of parents died while their children were still young, there was a distinct and honored role for…

    The Glorious End without the Difficult Means

    Just as Olympic athletes cannot realistically expect to win a gold medal unless they strictly discipline themselves toward victory, Christians cannot hope to prevail in the Christian life unless they take a serious, disciplined approach to it. Yet lurking in the background is always the temptation to hope that we can have the result of…
