Become a Mentor Leader

The Role of a Mentor Leader

The Mentor Leader is a follower of Jesus Christ who feels called to invest in the life of an at-risk child with the love of God. A Mentor Leader’s job is to journey alongside an Apprentice through life, serving as a spiritual coach, training him/her up in the ways of God.

The Commitment of a Mentor Leader

As a Mentor Leader, you are responsible for one Apprentice and you help to build your Apprentice’s team. We ask that you commit to at least one-year of service, during which you do the following:

  1. Connect with your Apprentice once-a-week – this is done on your own time, in the manner that works best for both you and your Apprentice. It can be as simple as a text or as involved as an in-person hang out.
  2. Attend Small Group with your Apprentice once-a-month – this monthly gathering includes a meal, a staff-led teaching and a focused time for you and your Apprentice to connect one-on-one. Mentor Leaders provide transportation for their Apprentice to and from these gatherings. Meeting times and locations vary by age group.
  3. Attend the Mentor Leader Workshop once-a-month – this monthly gathering is a time of fellowship, training and equipping for the entire team of Mentor Leaders. Workshops are held on the first Friday of each month from 6:30-8:30pm.
