mentoring

here is a bit from Beth Nelson about the value of life-giving mentoring.

In his article for the upcoming fourth volume of the Catalyst GroupZine, Tim Elmore describes a life-giving mentor as someone who walks beside another and says, “I’m going to help you finish your race well.” He says that most mentoring relationships are reduced to either fellowship or facts – dispensing information rather than building up life. He lifts Jesus’ leadership as the perfect model for a life-giving mentor: Jesus urged followers to come and see, then come and follow, then come and surrender, then go and multiply.
