Week 1: Mentoring Module
Read the Mentoring Unit in its entirety first. In your discussion this week, please answer the three questions below as they relate to this week’s Module.
Keep in mind that the person you are mentoring is called a “mentoree” (not “mentee”) – remember that according to your reading the word came from a man named Mentor.
- Discipleship vs. Mentoring: Based on the biblical examples, were they the same in biblical times? What about now? What do you think and why?
- Mentoring vs. Counseling: Counseling addresses cases of mental/emotional distress. How can a lay counselor address issues of soul care by using the art and practice of mentoring?
- Briefly give us a list of thoughts on your own Mentor needs and strengths: In what would you like to be mentored? What can you offer a mentoree?
