Whether you are looking for a mentor or want to become one, this practical handbook offers proven biblical keys that will open the door to thriving mentoring relationships. You will learn the Jesus Model of mentoring - initiate, build and release - and how to apply as you encourage growth in younger believers.
The Church needs believers who are willing to learn to spiritually mentor others, who are willing to act as spiritual elders, fathers and mothers in the faith. To mentor and nurture other believers to help them grow spiritually, be fully equipped to serve Christ and to do the works of Jesus wherever they live and work. Authentic Spiritual Mentoring gives step-by-step guidance on how a believer can move from being an observer of other believers to being a truly impacting spiritual influence for Christ in another believers life. Larry Kreider offers input for the lives of spiritual parents on healing past relationships and becoming secure in Gods love, as well as how to mentor other believers through encouragement, daily prayer, etc.
