Here’s a short excerpt from the ebook How to Find and Thrive With a Mentor:
During my middle and high school years I had plenty of older men who reached out to me from my church’s youth group. Mentors were easy to come by then, especially since my dad was the Senior Pastor. I always knew mentoring to be a long-held practice within the church for developing people and discipling them to become fully devoted followers of Jesus.
I think the church is most effective in discipling when it is done through mentoring relationships. Consider an old proverb which states that a society grows when old men plant trees whose shade they know they will never sit in.
Many churches recognize the power of mentoring and its ability to help young people gain confidence for life and maturity beyond their years. While plenty of men mentored me during my adolescence, things were very different as a twenty-something man out of college. No one reached out to me in our new suburban church.
I assumed that being on staff at a large church while also attending seminary automatically qualified me to have a long list of old, wise, and godly men wanting to mentor me. “Surely, I’m a hot commodity,” I thought.
However, no mentor knocked on my door.
I waited and hoped for a mentor to come around, for six months.
Two years and still nothing.
Four years later and no mentor.
I was yearning for an intentional relationship with a man who I could learn from by simply spending time with him.
The saddest part is that my story isn’t unusual. Conversations with twenty-something Millennials who share with me their desire for a mentor are commonplace. In nearly every case, when I followed up with them months later nothing changed. They remained without a mentor, and, like me, seemed to be doing little to change the fact, other than hoping for something to change.
