Procedure: Tell the students the story from Acts about Saul’s relationship with Timothy. Explain how Saul served as a father figure for Timothy especially when it came to ministry. Introduce the activity. Look at the introductions found in Paul’s letter. What information did he give so the people would know something about each other before meeting? Discuss ways to introduce people and motivations for introducing people. Have the students get into partners and create a short list of unique things about their partner. The students will then create an introduction about that person using what is on the list. Have students practice public speaking skills by introducing each other as the “featured guest”.

Supplemental Activity: Have students practice writing letters to someone about a new friend (their partner), introducing their friend and telling the person about them.
