I will be starting a new mentor group on Saturday September 4th. Here is some info on what it is all about. The deadline to apply is this Wednesday August 18th. I only have a few openings left.
>Our church is embracing a Married Men’s group model called Next Generation Mentoring that pairs high-potential men with a more senior, more mature mentor for 10 months with the goal of pointing them toward a fully integrated Christian Life. The result is the life-on-life application of biblical and scriptural principles as the Mentor shares his experiences, successes, failures, and insights to the group.
What it’s not
NGM isn’t for everyone. This is NOT a Bible study. It’s NOT an accountability group. It’s NOT a community group. This is a Mentor-led small group that involves reading (a book per month), memorization (two scriptures per month), transparency, and a willingness to change.
The vision is to help younger Christian men live God-centric lives, fulfill their God-given potential, and to become mentors to the next generation.
Topics of Study
Understanding who we are in God’s eyes
Deciphering how we can excel in our work, at home, and in our communities
Establishing priorities, work/ life balance
Dealing with sexual temptation
Making good decisions
Leadership and Godly character
Relating to our wives
Knowing what it means to have a vibrant, living relationship with Jesus Christ

It will take about 15 minutes to complete the application. You will be asked to indicate your acceptance of the NGM Covenant as part of the on-line application, as will your wife.
