Mentoring: “Do I have what it takes?”


If you have been reading our previous blog posts, you know that we at City Gospel Mission believe that youth mentoring is a worthy endeavor. We have witnessed how young people and their mentors are changed in various ways.

What about you or your church? Is God leading you in the direction of impacting young people for Him?

Maybe you are unsure of how mentoring fits into the overall vision of your church. Let me encourage you and your church to first pray and seek the Lord’s direction.

In the Bible, we see mentoring unfold in the life of Timothy through his relationship with the Apostle Paul.

It could be argued that Timothy was the product of a broken home; while his mother and grandmother were believers, his father was not. Perhaps Paul fulfilled the role of a Godly father in the life of Timothy. Paul knew that his influence on Timothy had the ability to impact whole congregations and ultimately the world at-large for Christ.

As you and your church seek God, consider these questions:

Yes, our youth are bombarded with influences too many to name; however, what if they could be shown a better way by you or the leaders of your church as their mentors?

We are praying for you and your church family. We look forward to hearing how we can partner with you to reach the next generation for Christ.

“Even when I am old and gray,
do not forsake me, my God,
till I declare your power to the next generation,
your mighty acts to all who are to come.
– Psalm 71:18
