Mentor Moments ~ Mentor Miles


God has put each of us in places where our light can shine. Scripture calls us to see the many ways we can share and encourage faith in one another.

Is your group ready to talk about how to engage in inter-generational ministry? This handout will help you contemplate the blessings each season of life brings – and how we all need each other!

Dawn Schulz, Conference Planning Chairwoman

Dawn Schulz captured a beautiful image of what a mentor is in her article, “Thanks for the guidance” featured in ‘Forward in Christ.’  Don’t underestimate the power of your kind words and encouragement to others!

Read Dawn’s insightful reflection on the impact of a mentor

The message of Christ Jesus as Savior will compel you to share His love with others! That will look different in each person’s life – and each of us will have different opportunities. Love the people God puts in your life and share His love with them. Dawn’s great article will help you grasp the importance and power of our Christian influence in the lives of others!

Mentoring is an important part of Dawn’s life as she serves Christ in a variety of callings. She continues to serve on the Women’s Ministry Executive Team and as the Conference Planning Team Chair so she can encourage others to grow in their faith and influence the world around them with the grace of Jesus.

More about Mentoring

Our definition of the work of a Christian mentor is intentionally general because no two mentoring relationships look exactly alike. Below are a few things mentoring relationships have in common.

Mentoring may be time spent with:

  • A less mature Christian, explaining and demonstrating how to apply God’s Word to situations in life.
  • A Christian where you mutually encourage one another in the faith.
  • An unbeliever to show them Christ’s love and gently share your faith.

Mentoring involves:

  • Sharing God’s Word, explaining and applying it.
  • Showing Christ’s love to the mentee and praying for them.
  • Intentionally opening up your life and sharing it with a mentee.
  • Letting your light shine before believers and unbelievers.

Being a Christian mentor is a calling. Mentoring can be rewarding and mentoring can be heart-breaking. But one thing is certain – mentoring can be successful only because the Holy Spirit works through the Word of God.
