Who We Are
Titus II Ministry is a non-denominational, not for profit, volunteer ministry dedicated to the encouragement and mentoring of men and women around the world. Based on Titus 2:1-8 which the NIV says, “You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine. Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith,in love and in endurance. Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.”
Our Mission is to encourage all men and women to have a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with God and each other through the truth of His Word. We do this through our blog, mentoring and speaking engagements across the United States and hopefully globally. We also partner with other ministries, organizations and mission efforts to further His kingdom and touch lives.
What We Believe

- The one true church, the body of Christ, consisting of all believers
- Obedience to our Lord’s command to lead people of all nations to faith in Christ and to grow in Christ-likeness
- Christ’s personal return to establish His Kingdom on earth

- God created man and woman, and marriage is a holy union between a man and a woman.
We began in September of 2014. Titus II Woman Ministry started out with a dream and not knowing how to start a ministry for women. God laid it on the heart of Tara to start a ministry and so she prayed and sought council of trusted friends and family. She thought of how a woman’s ministry could have the greatest impact on women today because women have busy lives and not a lot of time leftover. A blog! Tii started with a small blog on a free site. Tara thought, at first, that it would be a blog of one to two articles a month, but felt God leading her to contact women who made a difference in her life or came to mind to see if they would be willing to be part of the ministry as writers. She sent out an email that she drafted to about fifty women, not expecting to hear from many of them. Within 24 hours there were 25 women committing to writing anywhere between four times a year and once a month. The blog started out with 27 writers which allowed Titus II Woman Ministry to put out article two to three times a week. Within the first three year the blog has grown to four or more articles and now offering something for women six days a week. Tii has added their own Facebook page, Pinterest page, Twitter page, and Instagram. On September 1, 2018, the vision of Titus II and our entire team became more focused and expanded to include men in our mentoring focused ministry. It was prayed over for many months and the decision was collaborative. Our team now reaches men and women every day through social media and in person through mentoring in our own churches and towns. God continues to open doors of ministry to partner with missions and other ministries. We are excited for what God has in store next for Titus II Ministry and our team.
We are 100% volunteer. Every person that writes, edits, or speaks on behalf of Titus II Ministry does do on their own time and without true recognition. We all do this because we all feel called to share how God has changed our lives every single day. Below is our executive team, but keep in mind that we have many writers and other people that feed into the ministry. You can find their pictures and bios under their articles.
