The greatest need of the hour is not better programmes or more sophisticated
technology. The greatest need of the hour is for a transformed community, mature
followers of Jesus who will bring Godly wisdom and grace into a needy world.
But how do we help followers of Jesus grow in Christ-like maturity?
We will see that spiritual mentoring is a primary “method” that God has provided
to help people grow in Christ-likeness. This is the model that Jesus Himself gave us.
He developed people through close personal relationships.
This seminar will take a biblical and practical look at questions like:
. What are the basic components of spiritual mentoring?
. What are the three directions of mentoring?
. How can I give and receive spiritual mentoring where I am?
Specific strategies will be suggested as to how you can do spiritual mentoring
whether you are starting out or adapting fresh insights to existing programmes.
Our ultimate goal is for participants to grow in their capacity to give and receive
spiritual mentoring so that we can be the people that God wants us to be for the
times we live in.
