What is Peer Mentoring?
When individuals at the same level of life experience intentionally speak into one another’s lives in a relationship of mutual accountability and encouragement, with the purpose of growing together in Christlikeness.
Why should Pastors Mentor Pastors?
Pastoral attrition and failure are on the upswing. Often without anyone with whom they can share transparently, and believing they must maintain an image of “having it all together,” many pastors become discouraged and isolate themselves from others.
Pastor peer mentoring groups can meet this need as pastors share their hearts with one another, pray for one another, and speak encouragement into one another’s lives. Everyone needs mentors, even pastors! We invite all pastors to seek out peers with whom they can walk the often lonely journey of life and ministry.
