Mentorship is a powerful and effective tool in the development of spiritual and leadership formation. The impact of a mentoring relationship has the potential to form a catalyst of holistic development that affects a person from the inside out. Whether well-established in ministry or just beginning to explore a call, women of all ages and experience can benefit from a mentoring relationship. There are all kinds of mentorship whether one-on-one, small group, formal, or informal, all of which can be encountered here within our Awaken network.

Consider how you might enrich your life through a mentoring relationship. Meet with a mentor on a consistent basis either in person or virtually, join a cohort, or as a seasoned ministry leader, agree to become a mentor. Share your wisdom, insight, and heart for ministry. 

Contact Awaken’s Mentorship Coordinator who will provide you with guidance in getting started.

Mentorship – One-on-One

Finding female mentorship can be challenging. Awaken works within the network to partner you with another woman who can offer support through life experience, specific vocational maturity for guidance, attentive listening, and perspective regarding the development of spiritual formation—faith, calling, gifts, and skills. Depending on location, mentoring sessions can be either in person or online. 

Cohorts – Goal-Specific Small Groups

The Credentialing Cohort is open to any woman who is actively in the licensing process with Brethren in Christ US and is currently working to write the Doctrinal Questionnaire. This Cohort meets roughly every other week as participants give two hours for discussion, processing, and dedicated writing of their DQ. 

The Leadership Cohort focuses on what it means to develop an intentional leadership plan that cultivates formation first. Moving beyond the familiar corporate models, we endeavor to dig deeper into what it means to be a Jesus-centric leader. Whether you are in pastoral leadership, pursuing pastoral ministry, or still in the discernment process, this is for you. Great leadership doesn’t just happen, it’s cultivated on purpose!
