Today's Christian women do not simply want nice fellowships and cookie-cutter answers about how to deal with life. Though churches are filled with good ministry programming-activities, outreach events, and an endless selection of options-many churches neglect the fundamental mission of women in the church: making disciples.
Christian women today want to mentor and to be mentored. The church must rise to the challenge and develop creative ways of equipping modern women to do this. In Mentor for Life, Natasha Robinson lays a solid foundation for a ministry of mentoring that is based on God's kingdom vision, challenging women to consider the cost of discipleship and the high calling they have received in Christ. It shows how to develop mentoring relationships that function communally in existing small groups, groups that are diverse and inclusive. It also presents a mentoring framework with a theological focus on knowing and loving God, our identity in Christ, and how to love our neighbor. It also encourages women to think theologically and develop a basic Christian worldview.
Filled with examples from Robinson's experience in the military and business world, this resource gives readers the training they need to disciple others and as a foundation for kingdom service.
