3 Insights from This Episode

1. Radical Mentoring is intentionality

What does radical mentoring mean? Jesus mentored 12 men, and those 12 are arguably are the way we ended up with 2 billion Christians. Pretty radical, right?

Regi has mentored over a 180 men. If each of those men invested in 10 other men over the course of their lives, that’s almost 2,000 people. When we’re intentional about committing to consistently and steadily investing in the lives of people who are younger than us, the numbers get bigger and bigger.

2. God did it best

Regi pointed out an important distinction between mentoring and training: Training is teaching someone how to do something, mentoring is about teaching someone how to be something. It’s not about telling people what to do, but modeling it with your own actions.

God did this when he sent his son, Jesus Christ. Jesus was the embodiment of God on Earth who showed us how to be. He modeled the way to live and serve God while mentoring and investing in his 12. 2,000 years later, people’s lives are still being changed because of what Jesus did on Earth. That’s the power of Biblical mentorship.

3. Couple Scripture with a problem

When you’re mentoring someone, the Bible is the best guidebook to have. Resist the urge to choose a passage and just speak it or teach it to the person you’re mentoring. Listen to them, hear their story, find out what they’re struggling with, look for areas they need help and encouragement. Then, bring God into the fold. Answer their problems with Scripture. Making Scripture relevant to someone’s life is the best way to make someone care about Scripture.

Lead With Confidence and Clarity. Grow Your Church.

As leaders, we tend to see the challenges and roadblocks before other people do.

We've all been there before...

  • You need to refresh your vision for the future but know that change will be an issue for that person.
  • You're overstaffed (or missing a key role) and can't find the right person to fill the role.
  • You aren't reaching enough new people even though you've tried everything that's working for other churches.
  • You can see the issue but aren't confident in what to do about it.

And with another Sunday morning coming up, it'll just have to wait until next week when you have a few minutes to figure it out.

Now ask yourself this:

What would it feel like to have those answers at your fingertips 24/7?

Whether it's reaching new people, improving your preaching, increasing volunteers, refreshing your vision, engaging your staff, or any of the countless challenges we face as church leaders, The Art of Leadership Academy will equip you to lead your church with confidence and clarity.

Between comprehensive church leadership courses, live coaching calls, staff and volunteer training resources, and direct access to a private online community of senior-level church leaders, you'll get the exact insights and answers that fuel your church for growth.
