Mentoring is not just a term used by professionals in their career field. Mentoring is not just for those in vocational ministry. Coaches can be mentors on the field. Teachers can be mentors in the classroom. Parents can be mentors in the home. Grandparents can be mentors when they are watching the grandkids. Anyone can be a mentor because mentoring is another word for discipling. Jesus taught thousands of people. Jesus interacted with groups of people. But Jesus singled out a small group of 12 men to disciple. And he still spent a disproportionate amount of time with Peter, James, and John. Mentoring is passing on what we have received. This was the ministry strategy of Jesus and continues to be the ministry strategy of the church.
