The Process

Each student will meet with their mentor for eight separate sessions and discuss the material in the I Believe curriculum.  The lessons focus on who is God, who is Jesus, who is the Holy Spirit, how am I gifted, what are the sacraments we celebrate and why, etc.  The student will also make a personal creed or statement of faith that reflects their heart and desire to follow Jesus.

The Mentor

This might be one of the most important roles a person can play in someone’s life.  Each student is paired up with a mentor who is visibly following passionately after Jesus.  This mentor is dedicated to making sure that your students knows what it means to profess Jesus as Lord and Savior and helps the student put practical habits into place to continue to grow in their faith.

The Outcome

Hopefully by the end of this journey, each student will have discovered more about who they are created to be, a deeper love for God, a desire to continue to grow, an understanding that this is just the beginning of a great journey of becoming a more passionate follower of Jesus, and a desire to want to share their faith with those who don’t know Him.

"As mentors, our main goal is not to give more facts about God to the youth; it is to allow God to work a heart - changing transformation in the lives of the youth at EGM which can only happen by the power of God's amazing grace." (A mentors thought from this text: Titus 3:5)
