God uses His people to grow our faith and shape us to look more like Jesus. That’s why we want to help the members of StoneWater church connect in healthy Mentoring relationships. We want to help individuals find their place in the Body of Christ and to equip them to be committed disciple makers of Jesus. We want these believers to take their next steps of faith in all areas of their lives.
Mentoring typically means to give wise and trusted advice towards a goal. In our case, the goal is to become more like Christ. Mentors serve as advisors, encouragers, counselors- helping to bring clarity, celebrating possibilities, exposing dark corners of sin, and giving confidence by walking alongside and believing the best about what God can do through the mentee. We believe the best mentoring happens with intentional relationships are formed with a few. We want to narrow our focus in order to increase our impact.
At SWC, we help develop mentor relationships for 3 distinct groups of believers:
- Foundation Mentoring – Basic steps for walking with Jesus. This is designed to help new believers, or even believers who what to build a strong foundation on how to study scripture and disciple others.
- Catalyst Mentoring – Find someone to share their wisdom and experience to help you take your next jump in your faith. If you feel like you’ve hit a plateau, or even if you are preparing for a big faith step or transition in your life, gain tools and perspectives to help you go further.
- Leadership Mentoring – Everyone is called to disciple, but not everyone is gifted to be a leader. Develop leadership and mentoring skills in an intentional small group designed to spur you into starting something new or leading others.
All of our mentoring groups are designed to be a ration of 1 mentor to 1 mentee and up to 1:3. We believe in small so we keep it small. Mentoring groups are launched throughout the year and typically include 8-12 gatherings spread over a few months.
