Who can be a Mentor?
A Mentor may be a stay at home mom, an insurance salesperson, a construction worker, a nurse, or a professor.
Mentors are everywhere. However, few have received the training they need to be effective. Bobby Clinton at Fuller Seminary has researched extensively the role a mentor in the emergence of a leader.
Qualities of a Mentor include: Biblical Values, Experience, Availability, Maturity, and Giftedness.
Though YWAM assigns one-in-one mentorships to all our students, Converge is different. Converge mentors are chosen by the student from their own community, their church, college, or place of work.
The best Mentor is someone the participant already knows and trusts to provide guidance and prayer through their early leadership experiences, especially as they work to complete a field project on a Converge missional internship.
