The Program is Built on 5 Proven Leadership Change Components
Your experience as a pastor must be passed on to your mentees. Coaching largely focuses on what a mentee already knows and helps them strategize their own development. Mentoring is different from coaching. A mentor focuses on a proven foundation of knowledge, attitudes, and skills that mentees may not already possess but are essential to their effectiveness.
Structured Mentoring Sessions
Your mentees will be prepared through Paul to Timothy videos and print resources before they meet with you. They will come to your meetings with a structured journal that will serve as the basis for your interactions with them.
There are core competencies of effective ministerial leaders. These competencies are comprised of knowledge, attitudes, and skills. Your mentoring sessions are designed to allow you and your mentees to focus on how to practically incorporate these core competencies into their lives and ministries.
Denominations have learned that seminars rarely have great impact. Seminars alone simply don't tend to bring about the needed leadership development. The secret is to concurrently develop leaders through learning, implementing new knowledge, attitudes and skills, while reflecting with their mentor as they develop. Research clearly shows that ministers being educated on the front end of their ministry, without practical application of what they are learning, have the poorest results in ministry. Developing ministers who add the component of doing ministry under a mentor's guidance will end up with the most effective ministries.
