Main Content

In response to the last episode, I came up with some suggestions for finding a mentor in ministry.

Things to Consider When Finding a Mentor

1.  Cast a Wide Net

2.  Pray for Wisdom & Guidance.  Then, Trust the Lord’s Leading.

3.  Start Now.  Especially if You’re Young.

4.  Build a Relationship Before Asking for Mentorship.

5.  Look to Be a Blessing to Him.  Make It Easy for Him to Mentor You.

6.  Look for a Man That Clearly Has What You Personally Need.

7.  Look for a Man That Talks and Listens.

8.  Get a Group Together and Ask Him to “Mentor Us.”

9.  Show Gratitude and Honor.

These thoughts were loosely based on ideas I picked up from these sources:
