A mentor is someone who graciously helps you discern and live out God’s will for your life. They are someone that the leadership here at CenterPoint believes to be mature in their faith, loving, dedicated, disciplined, and wise.
Being a Christian can be really, really difficult sometimes. That’s why God never intended it to be an individual pursuit; He wanted it to be a community effort. One of the main reasons we push life groups regularly at CenterPoint is because we want everyone to have a supportive environment that helps them make progress in their faith. But even in life group there isn’t time to address every situation that may be going on in your life or past hurts that may be impacting your present. So unless you already have a deep relationship with someone in the group or at CenterPoint, you may still feel like you’re trying to figure out your faith alone. Mentoring helps solve this problem.
Some people have had experiences where being mentored felt more like being investigated. Others have had experiences where the meetings felt like a cold job interview. And still others have had experiences where they were awkwardly paired up with someone they didn’t know and it didn’t end up working out. Mentoring here at CP is not like any of these.
Mentoring is a close friendship that helps you discern and live out God’s will for your life. Here at CenterPoint, you’ll be able to survey profiles of several mentors at your campus as well as different options for meeting format (what you cover, how long the meeting lasts). Ultimately, you’re customizing a mentoring program to help you meet your spiritual goals.
The first thing is to fill out the application (takes 10-15 minutes). Upon review, Pastor John will reach out to you with a list of available mentors at your campus and their contact information. You can either reach out to them directly or meet with them at the next mentor meet and greet (usually held after a morning service, includes breakfast, and lasts about 30-45 minutes).
