A few summers ago, I did a sermon series on the book of Titus.
The whole thing was kind of by accident, but once I waded into it, I found myself teaching our congregation about mentoring. It’s a central theme in Titus.
That teaching sparked some things in me.
I’ve now got four groups I mentor face to face:
- local pastors
- smaller church pastors in a retreat setting
- and mutual mentoring with large church pastors.
Last week, in a conversation with my wife, another spark was lit, which is why I’m beginning this blog.
My hope is to stimulate dialogue that’s helpful to healthy, growing churches and healthy, growing Christian lives. I’m thinking of it as webmentoring and hope to receive as well as give.
In coming weeks, I hope to cover principles and phenomenon that have been the most helpful to me, like “Pastor/Parish Poker,” “The Berry Bucket,” “The Whitewaters of Chaos,” and “Hill-taking.”
I’m hopeful you will join in with things you’ve seen that enhance church health as well.
