We expect to launch more mentoring groups this summer!
All of us want to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually, but life is full of challenges we feel ill-equipped to handle alone. Wise decision-making and good friends can help, but often what we need is someone older and wiser who has been through our circumstance.
Throughout the Bible, we see examples of older believers mentoring (discipling) younger believers and essentially saying, as Paul did, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1). As we try to grow as Christ-followers, we are exhorted to seek out the wisdom and life-experience of our elders. Needle’s Eye Ministries is fortunate to have a huge pool of potential mentors who can attest to the faithfulness of God through every life circumstance. We want to connect YOU to a great mentor!
How will this work?
Through short-term book studies (around 6 meetings) a few young professionals will be grouped with two mentors (all the same gender). Between meetings you will read sections from one of the top books on maturing as a man/woman of God. Your mentors will listen to your response to the content, ask questions, and share about their own experiences. That’s it. Simple, short-term, but rich. If you feel a connection with one of the mentors when the group concludes, you can approach them about potentially continuing to meet.
How do I get involved?
Because there is limited space in each mentoring group, we want to make sure everyone is seriously committed. The mentors are picking the times and locations that work for them. We will continually publicize new groups, so don't worry if one does not fit your schedule.
If you are interested in participating in a mentoring group, fill out the form below for our Small Group Coordinator Jordan Maroon. Doing so will get you into the pool for all future mentoring groups.
