Most churches have small groups for nurturing fellowship and Bible study within the congregation. But for deep-level soul development, a believer often needs personalized guidance from a spiritual mentor. A mentor can provide the wisdom of a more mature believer and individual guidance so that a mentoree's life can be transformed. In turn, the mentoree becomes a mentor and helps transform the lives of others.
Pastor and writer Rick Lowry shares his mentoring experience in "Mentoring that Produces Mentors." In this study, we will review his article and examine the biblical basis and implications for mentoring.
