Mentor Training

Each Mentor should have completed the following assignments before beginning to serve in the Mentoring Ministry:


What To Expect

After you've agreed to enter into a formal mentoring relationship, you'll receive an email from the Key Leader with the following information:

  • Mentee's Intake Form
  • Recommended time frame of Mentoring relationship
  • Any additional information received during the Mentee's interview process.

Next, the Key Leader will send an email to the Mentor and Mentee announcing the Mentor/Mentee match.

The Mentee is responsible for making the initial contact to be done within 2-5 days of that email announcement.

The first Mentor Meeting should be scheduled within the first week after contact has been made.

First Meeting
  • Use the Mentee Intake Form that was emailed to you by the Key Leader as a guide to gather information about the Mentee and her goals/desires.
  • Ask for the Mentee's testimony and/or a Reader's Digest version of her life story.
  • Ask "How would this relationship look to you if it is successful?"
  • Ask "What are you wanting from this relationship?"
  • Clarify the recommended length of time for the formal mentoring relationship.
  • Review goals and desires (in first meeting and throughout relationship).
Weekly Mentor Meeting Expectations

The weekly meeting should last one hour and take place in a location suitable for both participants.

Weekly homework may be assigned.  It should always be focused on the stated goals of the Mentee becoming a more faithful disciple of Jesus Christ.

Review written mentoring goals and desires frequently.  

Accountability within the mentoring relationship should be considered one-sided in that the Mentor is holding the Mentee accountable, but the Mentee does not hold the Mentor accountable.
