Mentoring and Shepherding
A Christ focused, spiritual mentoring ministry
Women from all walks of life today are overwhelmed with responsibilities–actually or mistakenly imposed on them by society. They believe bigger means better and busier means more effective.
They feel pressured, stretched, and squeezed from all sides as they try to bear up under this “Superwoman” epidemic. They try to do the best they can to make the most of each day, yet they always seem to fall short of their goals and expectations. They are left embarrassed and filled with feelings of inadequacy. Some are burned-out and desire a renewal–a rejuvenation of their
While these women come in all shapes and sizes and from many varied backgrounds, they all have the same common denominator. They need answers but they don’t know where to begin. They are desperate for truth from God’s Word, and they have no one to teach them. Often they simply need encouragement, someone to listen, someone who will point them to Jesus. Our Following the Shepherd Ministry is a step beyond casual friendships. It moves you to think outside the box–to move from the mentoring idea to a shepherding mentality. It’s a concept of accountability and spiritual guidance, which is not typically part of most relationships. Our Following the Shepherd Ministry equips women to establish a one-on-one relationship with a lamb (woman being shepherded), encouraging her to develop a deeper intimacy with the Lord. It is designed to lead the individual to an understanding and valuing of a love relationship with the Lord and its effects on the heart. You will learn to live above your circumstances–the daily drudgery and the heartaches–not below them. You will be equipped to shine forth His love in the darkness and point others to Him regardless of your circumstances, thus bringing glory to His name.
Our Christ-centered mentoring/discipleship program is designed to guide women to develop moment-by-moment relationships with Christ. Women are partnered with trained volunteers and meet weekly for Bible study, prayer, and discussion.
