Mentoring

What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is a one-on-one, same gender relationship that provides an opportunity for those who are younger (in age or faith) to be spiritually guided by someone more mature.

 

What do Mentors do?
Mentors provide an environment for spiritual growth which prioritizes the relationship, while engaging with Scripture and other resources that deepen faith.
 

What is a Mentor’s Commitment?

  • Meet with your mentee weekly or bi-weekly for 9–12 months.

  • Intentionally explore a variety of spiritual topics.

  • Pray for and with your mentee regularly.

  • Participate in a one-time training prior to beginning.

What is a Forest Hill’s Commitment to Mentors and Mentees?

Campus staff will provide ongoing resources and be the first point of contact for support and encouragement. If help is needed finding a mentee, campus staff will make recommendations and introductions. However, mentors are encouraged to reach out to candidates they already know through Forest Hill. A list of materials to use when meeting with your mentee will be provided for you at training and later will be available in Resources.

 

What Topics will Mentors and Mentees explore?
Mentors will be equipped at a one-time training with a resource list aligned with Forest Hill’s essentials, values and measures. Together, the mentor and mentee will pick the topics that will best shape their time together. Topics include:
  • Foundational relationship with God

  • Grace

  • Prayer

  • Spiritual disciplines

  • The Bible

  • Doctrine & theology

  • God’s will

  • Apologetics & evangelism

  • Character

  • Purpose & identity

  • Relationships (including marriage, parenting & dating)

  • Work

  • Leadership
