Information about mentoring is unlimited. Several approaches to mentoring indicate a number of options available for consideration.
In the days ahead we want to explore several areas related to the concept of mentoring and how mentoring can achieve the second half of the Great Commission: “teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”
Mentoring usually involves an experienced and trusted advisor who trains and counsels someone else. The mentoring relationship may extend any where from a few days to a few years depending on the nature and purpose of the relationship.
As a spiritual influence in the lives of others, we all want to pursue ways we can mentor someone in developing maturity in their faith.
The approach to mentoring we want to consider is based on ways Jesus mentored the disciples.
As we explore these areas, please examine ways to get involved in mentoring others, and seek someone who can be a mentor to you.
Before we examine more fully this relationship, take a moment to pray about someone who can be a mentor and pray for someone we can mentor.
