ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This is the initial workshop which lays the foundation of biblical leadership and how this is essential for developing others through the process of one-on-one mentoring. The first chapter encourages the participant to consider what “success” is for them in life and ministry. The barriers to leading a life of significance are discussed based upon the biblical attributes of leadership. All cultures have been negatively influenced by sin and often in the church we also take the leadership models of the society around us. Issues regarding Authority vs. Power, Vulnerability vs. Pride, Releasing vs. Controlling and Accountability vs. Independence are discussed.
With this as a foundation, the art of Mentoring is explained, differentiating it from other relationships such as spiritual discipleship, parenting, spiritual fathering, counseling or just being a friend. Practical suggestions are also provided for both the mentor and mentoree as they begin such an intentional relationship designed for personal growth. The Mentoring thru Intentional Relationships model is also then explained. It is recommended that Mentoring thru Intentional Relationships Guide 1 be available for those that want to begin mentoring someone after the workshop.
