Find a Mentor/Be a Mentor

A. To prepare for the journey, find a mentor…
1. A mentor is defined as a “wise and trusted counselor or teacher.”
2. Look for someone, as a mentor, who models the behavior you desire.
3. Look for someone who has been there!
1. Scripture is filled with mentor/mentee relationships.
a. Jethro/Moses Exodus 18
b. Moses/Joshua Deuteronomy 31,34
c. Elisha/Elijah 1 Kings 19, 2 Kings 2
d. Naomi/Ruth Ruth 1-4
e. Elizabeth/Mary Luke 1
f. Barnabas/Paul Acts 4,9,11
g.Paul/Timothy Acts 16, Philippians 2, 1 & 2 Timothy
2. God commands us to make disciples and mentoring is one of the best formats.
3. God calls us to lead a life where Christ is seen in us.
"And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ." 1 Corinthians 11:1
“The heart of mentoring: Getting the most out of life isn’t about how much you keep for yourself, but how much you pour into others.” -David Stoddard
1. Mentoring is a powerful investment in the lives of others that continues even beyond your life.
“The Uncommon Individual Foundation, an organization devoted to mentoring research and training reports that mentoring is the third most powerful relationship for influencing human behavior, after marriage and the extended family.”
2. Mentoring is a desirable relationship by both churched and unchurched alike.
“Both churched and unchurched young adults desire a maximum number of opportunities to connect with a mentor.” -Lifeway
1. Mentoring is making a difference in the lives of those we mentor.
“…hearing honest stories allows mentees to learn from a mentor’s mistakes, and, hopefully, not repeat them.” Anonymous
Acts of the Apostles 20:35 NLT

3. Your greatest eternal joy...what is left behind!
1. Find a mentor...
Rules for Mentees
· Try to connect with your mentor at least 4 times a year
· In-person contact is best because nothing replaces the human moment
· Have a list of questions before each meeting
· Ask open-ended questions
· Listen actively, look for central ideas, big themes
· Take initiative, follow up on suggestions
· Bring something to the relationship, this is shared experience
· Build trust, don't take advantage
· Be respectful of mentor's time
· Be grateful, explain the impact of their relationship
· Take time after meeting to reflect, making notes on big ideas, and ideas you want to explore fully
2. Be a mentor…
Rules for the Mentor
· Listen, listen, listen
· Help develop goals
· Be reliable and consistent
· Ask how or what questions, not why
· Always be positive
· Be courteous
· Learn to ask the right questions
· Support and challenge
· Encourage independence
· Help develop a new perspective, maybe for both of you
· Be a 'safe' person to bounce ideas off
· Be ready to learn something new that is important to you
