GTWY Women Mentoring Ministry is a group of women who love to come alongside other women to strengthen, encourage, affirm, and support them as they grow in their faith in Jesus. We do this by pairing a trained Mentor with a woman desiring to be mentored. The Mentor's role is to be a friend, a spiritual guide, and a prayer partner to whomever she is mentoring. We desire to help women make strong connections within our church family. We believe every woman would benefit from having a Mentor!
What can you expect?
A godly role model, a confidante, a listener, a prayer partner, a Christian friend, an encourager, a sister in Christ, an accountability partner, someone to give you a godly perspective, and someone who is consistent.
What can you not expect?
A mom replacement, a fixer, someone who makes choices for you, a professional counselor, a Bible scholar ( though she will probably be quite knowledgeable), a “best friend” (although friendship is certainly an element of being a Mentor), someone who has all the answers (although she can direct you to the One who does) and finally, she will not be perfect.
Mentor Training Opportunity
We also love to train women to be Mentors. Our next Mentor training will take place in early 2024 (January or February - the exact date is TBD). We desire for our Mentors to be equipped to serve their Mentees well, with love and graciousness. Throughout the year we continue to offer our Mentors various opportunities to grow. We have periodic gatherings for fellowship and prayer.
Women who would like to be a mentee are encouraged to complete a mentee application to be considered for the next cycle of mentor and mentee pairing which will be early 2024.
The Women's Mentoring Ministry Team is led by Gay O'Deens, Bluizer Greene, and Renee Markell. For questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
