Christian mentor training
As Christians, church leaders, Levites, pastors, we all must remember the great commission of Jesus Christ to make disciples. Much attention is paid to the fulfillment of the first part of the famous verse - to evangelism. However, it so happens that the second part - teaching new converts to obey all that He has commanded - fades into the background.
Christian mentoring is a relationship between people. The mentor is a more experienced person, who shares knowledge with a new convert. In Christianity, ministry is an activity carried out by believers to express or spread their faith. We define ministry as “fulfilling Christ's mission in the world.”
