Tires, Trails, and Truth (otherwise known as “T3”) is a mountain bike study week at Timberline Lodge, bringing together two amazing things: 

1) The chance to enjoy riding bikes with qualified instructors in one of the nation’s top mountain bike regions, and...

 

2) The privilege of diving into the Word of God together under gifted Bible teachers to get to know Jesus more personally. 

This week is open for everyone: college students on summer break, career-focused peeps who need a week away, or those wanting to spend quality time with family in a beautiful and uplifting environment. All ages are welcome, and you don’t even need to love mountain biking to participate! We believe all who come will be blessed and impacted by this week!

Tires, Trails and Truth
Teaching Overview

Josh Pedersen, Director of Vox Bivium (a nine-month discipleship program in South Carolina), will be teaching for this year’s T3 week. He has been serving at Timberline Lodge

2040A8D4-3228-4FC2-8058-7A2B5CE46AFD_edited.jpg

for many years as a Bible school guest lecturer and is excited to join us this summer and teach through The Transformed Life; Body, Soul, and Spirit!

Here is an overview of the week’s teaching, from Josh’s perspective:

Do you realize how much God has made us as humans in His own image?

In the same way that God exists as a perfect trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - He has made us triune beings as well. We exist as body, soul, and spirit, and the Lord is transforming all of us through the indwelling life of Christ and the power of His Spirit. The “good news” of Jesus truly is good news for ALL OF US.

Jesus calls us to “…love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” (Matthew 12:30) 
Join us this summer as we study the beautiful way that the Gospel message of Christ transforms ALL of us.


How should we interact with this body of ours while in this world?
How does the Spirit of God impact our thoughts?
What does Jesus teach us about our minds; or what should we do when we feel overwhelmed with our emotions?
What does it mean to be “born of the Spirit” and to worship in “spirit and in truth”?
What should we do when our thoughts or emotions seem “hopeless” and so much more!

The Word of God has a great deal to say in terms of guiding us into the fullness of life that is found in Christ. We are trusting the Lord to bring us as His people into vitality of spirit, a sound mind, healthy emotions, and a disciplined body.
