Mentoring Matters

October 15th - February 18th, 2018

$0 - $5

Youth and Young Adults need those older than them to share life experiences, listen to their struggles, ask challenging questions, and be available to pray with and for them!

Mentoring is a dynamic, intentional, voluntary relationship of trust in which one person (the mentor) enables another person (the mentee) to maximize the grace of God within their lives and develop their potential in the service of God’s kingdom purposes.

To be a Mentor with Mountain Park Church, all potential mentors are required to attend sessions in our Cheam room at Ministry Centre for lunch. This is a time of coming together for an hour and half to be properly equipped for Christ-like mentoring of Youth and Young Adults.

Attending the sessions does not mean you are committing to a mentor relationship.

The first session will give you and idea of what to expect and meet other mentors.

The cost is for one session and covers the cost of food only.

If paying by cheque or cash, select 'pay later'. Register and pay by Thursday, Oct 12th.

Looking forward to developing our potential to lead others in the Kingdom!
