Principles and Practices of Mentoring

Course Instructor: Marvin Brubacher

The foundational belief expressed in this course is that leaders develop leaders.  Often the emphasis is placed almost exclusively on formal educational systems to provide the means to reproduce leaders.  In some situations, leadership development happens more by default than by design.  In this course, the importance of mentoring will be discussed as a key ingredient in developing leaders, especially the kind of leaders who will lead like Jesus.  Leaders give several reasons for not mentoring potential leaders such as their busyness in ministry or a lack of knowing how to do it.  This course will offer a biblical foundation for mentoring, a challenging look at the heart of a mentor, some practical tips to help in one’s mentoring, and a survey of tools that are available to assist a leader in mentoring.
