Timothy’s School is a very special elementary school that opened its doors on February 14, 2014 in partnership with the Church of God in Obligado. Though the school has grown and changed in the years since, the mission remains the same: To create a place of welcome for all children where they learn the skills needed to pursue their God-given vocations and further develop into the people God created them to be. Timothy’s school therefore welcomes kids with learning disabilities and immigrant children with little to no Spanish-speaking abilities. As they reflect Christ’s all-encompassing love, many children and families are flourishing in new ways.
This project partners with Timothy’s School in the construction of two new classrooms. As the student population continues to exponentially increase in numbers, we hope to walk alongside them in creating more space for this growth.
The goal of this project is to raise $30,000.

“Timothy’s School is different. It’s special. And it’s going to help a lot of kids, like Timothy, to find Jesus.”
Timothy’s school currently has childcare for ages 2-4, preschool, and classes for first through fifth grades. As of the 2022 school year, 205 students attend Timothy’s School, and enrollment has continued to increase from year to year. The school employs 37 staff, including a director, a coordinator, a counselor, an English teacher, and grade-level teachers and helpers.
Timothy’s School has been meeting inside the Church of God in Obligado, significant growth created a need for finding its own space. The school therefore purchased a nearby property and is now in the process of constructing a three-story building so that they can serve their current students more effectively and also reach out to impact new families. Thus far, 70% of the ground floor of this building is already completed; this project aims to partner with Timothy’s school in completing the remaining 30% of the ground floor!
