Why Mentor Ministry?

In the Bible, we hear God calling us into relationships with others so we might learn and grow as people of Faith. Moses trained and equipped Joshua to lead God’s people to Israel, who would soon enter the promised land.  Eli guided the boy Samuel to a deeper understanding of God’s call and claim on his life.  Jesus sent the disciples out two by two to share the good news of God’s Kingdom.  The Apostle Paul developed a mentoring relationship with Timothy as they became partners in ministry.  At St. John’s, we value the importance of mentoring young adults in their 9th-grade year of D-way as they begin preparing for their Rite of Confirmation. Mentoring relationships build trusted friendships that give youth another person in their lives to listen, laugh, learn,

and most importantly help them grow in their faith.
