Jason Warden - Mentee
I've been through some struggles in life and didn't always get the best advice on how to handle them. Being mentored has given me the opportunity to talk with another guy about what's going on in life and then work through it in a way that God would see fit. Being reminded to stay faithful and pray through all things really helps me out. Witnessing how God works in my mentor Lee's life, gives me encouragement to know God will work in my life too.
Ken Binder - Mentor
Why do I mentor? It's the example Jesus has given us.
In Matthew 4, Jesus calls out to the 12 disciples Come, follow Me...! After Jesus' time of mentoring them, He commands them to go and make disciples (Matthew 28). Mentoring is intentional disciple-making just as Jesus did. Every man should have another man, a season ahead of him, speaking into his life.
In Paul's second letter to Timothy he tells his mentee, teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others. Without a plan to mentor the men of the church, too many men will just stay comfortably seated on the sidelines and miss out on spiritual growth.
Tama Looney - Mentor
I feel that God calls believers like me to spend time building up and encouraging others which in strengthens our relationship with Him. Michelle and I meet for lunch and I sincerely look forward to our weekly talks. We get to break away from the craziness of our responsibilities and spend time talking about our lives and how God is using situations, people and even challenges to grow us on a daily basis.
By serving as a mentor, I'm able to watch Michelle grow in her relationship with Christ, and I’m also blessed by her eager spirit, her heart for Christ, and challenged by her quest for knowledge and wisdom that results in me digging into the Bible and strengthening my own walk.
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. …Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9, 12 (NLT)
Angie Fowler - Mentor
To me mentoring is positioning myself to see God work in someone's life and my own, being open and humble to Him and what He wants me to know, and being ready to receive His truth and act upon it.
Mentoring Gwyn has been a blessing and privilege. She encourages me without even knowing it. The Lord has brought us together and given me a passion and love for young adults, especially because I’m praying for a young adult family member to come into a relationship with Jesus Christ!
