Become a Mentor
The Bible tells us that the harvest is ripe, but the workers are few. In other words; there is an abundant “crop” of people that are ready to make Jesus their Lord, but there isn’t enough willing or equipped workers to make that a reality. We as Christians, leaders included, are stuck in some area that is preventing us from moving forward in authentic freedom. People often find themselves paralyzed or ill equipped to live out the calling on their life.
We at Purely His feel compelled to raise up mentors from within the harvest and equip those currently mentoring with effective tools. We have mentoring groups for the purpose of guiding people to go “ALL in” with Jesus and “Get Unstuck” from anything in the way of that. The group atmosphere will provide encouragement, accountability, connection, and teaching.
The mentors are encouraged to drop their mask and in so doing, the mentees will drop theirs. The group members are mentored and raised up, so that they can in turn, mentor another. We are making disciples that make disciples that make disciples…
Our plan is to raise up the next generation of effective mentors by mentoring them through these groups. Pouring everything we’ve got into them, so that they can pour into others. The group attendants get the best available training because they learn through personal experience.
These groups are built to be duplicated. Upon completion of the five months, our hope is that new groups will be launched by those who just experienced it. That is how we see the discipleship movement progressing.
We have written our own curriculum which outlines the 5 Step process we use. It works best if there are two mentors and eight group attendants. The group meets for five months, one time a week in person for two hours and are encouraged to make contact with each other throughout the week. These are closed groups, because of the sensitive nature of the things discussed.
The same group stays together for five months as they heal and grow together. We anticipate lifelong relationships being produced, because they have connected in a deep way through this process.
We are willing to travel to your area to train potential new groups of mentors. All materials needed to facilitate the groups are provided. We also provide mentoring for group leaders in both personal and group issues. Even mentors need mentoring.
The outline for a weekly group time:
I was introduced to the Purely His ministry at a community gathering. I had been hurt while serving in leadership through church eight years prior. I quietly drifted away from church and God as a result. I had been avoiding getting involved in any church group; for fear that the Lord will call me back into ministry.
After much prayer, I decided to take a leap of faith and walk through this fire of healing. It would require me going all in with Jesus, dropping my mask, keeping it real and walking out the 5 steps of this ministry. Realizing I was stuck in a place of un-forgiveness with the church, I was able to walk through true forgiveness.
After years of silence and being heavily burdened with this load…I can truly say that I unhooked that whole mess and handed it over to God and now walk in freedom. What a blessing this ministry has been to me. It continues to stretch and grow me into the woman of God that He intended me to be. I have to say that my greatest fear of being called back into ministry came to pass and now I’m proud to say that I am a Mentoring Group leader for Purely His and loving it!
