Most women’s ministry leaders agree that mentoring and discipleship are essential components of a thriving women’s ministry program.
I have a special treat for you all today!
I had the opportunity to get a sneak peak of the newest book by Janet Thompson, Mentoring for All Seasons: Sharing Life’s Experiences and God’s Faithfulness.
Last week while running errands I caught the last 10 minutes of part 1 of this 2-part interview of Lee and Leslie Strobel on Focus on the Family titled Surviving a Spiritual Mismatch.
As I listened faces of women who’ve I gone to church with over the years flashed through my mind.
The stereotypical picture of mentoring is of two women, one older than another, meeting weekly to study the scriptures for a set number of months.
The problem is that in many churches these types of formal “mentoring programs” just aren’t working.
