What is Mentoring?
Mentorship is the influence, guidance, or direction given by a mentor. A mentor is someone who teaches or gives help and advice to a less experienced and often younger person. A mentor can be a trusted accountability partner who you can share your failures and shortcomings with and know they’ll keep it confidential. It’s a “safe-base” where you can share all your failures and receive help from someone who’s likely been there, done that, and bought the T-shirt. A mentor is someone who helps you grow your skills, make better decisions, and gain new perspectives about God and the Bible. Mentoring is a long-term learning relationship with the primary purpose being personal growth in the Lord, becoming more like Jesus Christ, and accepting with humility what the mentor shares with them.
