II. Resources for Mentoring Sessions

Diagnostic tools, discussion starters, Bible studies, articles, etc., for use in mentoring and training sessions and retreats.

a) Diagnostic Tools

b) Discussion Starters

c) Bible Studies

The following Bible studies can be completed by a mentoree and then reflected on in mentoring sessions. They are useful resources in training events or during retreats.

d) Mentoring/Discipleship Articles

In this section experienced Christian leaders share their reflections on specific issues/challenges they have faced, how they sought to deal with them and the actual outcomes. These are not “sermonettes” but open, honest sharing of the struggles faced by those who seek “to live and walk in the Spirit”, making Jesus Christ their Lord. A few reflective questions accompany each resource.

Mentors can occasionally have their mentorees work on one of these resources between sessions with the aim of relating it to their own situations and reporting back their responses.

From John Mallison’s address to the evangelical members of the New South Wales Uniting Church in Australia on the comprehensive subject of Evangelism & Disciple-Making (Oct 2011).
