MENTORSHIP

Purpose of Mentorship Initiative

In the early church we are given a view of a church that not only succeeded in reaching the world, but also training people. We are given the example of Paul mentoring Timothy & Titus, while Barnabas mentored John Mark into a powerful young Evangelist. Ellen White writes that “We are failing in another direction, and that is that men who can work should be linked in their labors with those who are inexperienced, that they may get an experience in the right direction.—Manuscript 19b, 1890, p. 3. (Talk before the General Conference Committee, July 14, 1890.) {5MR 358.1}. This spirit of mentorship must exist again in this last day movement. We hope that we can help young people to become more equipped and confident serving the lord in their local church.
