Master of Christian Leadership Mentoring 

Choose 1 of the 3 options

OPTION 1 – Mentee:

Students are required to connect with a mentor for a six-month commitment. The purpose of the relationship is growth and development for the student-mentee. As a result, the mentor
should have skills, experience, or other attributes that the student feels he/she could learn about or learn from. The mentor could also be someone who can speak into the curriculum you write for your Capstone project.

The mentoring relationship will look different for each student and his/her mentor because everyone’s needs are different – as are their circumstances and relationships. What’s most important is that students are learning from their mentor and growing throughout the process.

OPTION 2 – Mentor 1-on-1:

Students are required to connect with a mentee for a six-month
commitment. The purpose of the relationship is for the student-mentor to help an emerging leader grow and develop as a person and/or leader. Being a mentor is a serious commitment. You need to make sure that you are in a good place emotionally and spiritually and can offer godly wisdom to the mentee and that you have enough experience, as relevant, to help the mentee. Do not choose this option lightly.

Students interested in this option must meet minimum requirements (TBD) and be required to provide references attesting to students’ qualifications, stability, and health.

The mentoring relationship will look different for each student and his/her mentor because everyone’s needs are different – as are their circumstances and relationships. What’s most important is that student-mentors support their mentees and are also open to learning from them.

OPTION 3 – Small Group Mentoring:

Students are required to connect with a small group of 3-5 people
who are interested in being mentored by you in the subject you have written about for your Capstone project. You can use the curriculum as the foundation for mentoring the small group. That is, you mentor the group as you teach and work through the materials you’ve developed. The mentoring relationship should be 3-6 months long, depending on how long it takes to get through the curriculum and the type of relationship you have developed with the students in the small group setting and individually.

As always, the mentoring relationship can look different for each person in the small group because everyone’s needs are different – as are their circumstance and relationships. What’s most important is that student-mentors support their mentees and are also open to learning from them.
