Mentoring & Discipleship

"He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ." – Colossians 1:28

Mentoring includes training and the transfer of skills and knowledge, but it's so much more. It's a witness to an open life worthy of imitation, perhaps an older, experienced person holding the ladder for a younger colleague.

It may be someone with a particular gifting patiently helping others to believe that they can attempt and succeed at something new.

In OM, we esteem all backgrounds and cultures because we know we can learn from each other. Mentoring in OM isn't just a trendy word; it's hands-on, side-by-side, walking in faith to see each other develop and grow as God has gifted us. It's walk, not talk.

The typical limitations of too few church leaders serving too many young believers means there's an acute need for mentors in every OM ministry. We want mentors who are also students:

humble, patient, encouraging, believing, ready to open their Bibles and their lives.

We want people whose love for the people they serve is more widely known than their expertise. Most of all, we want godly mentors who will coach and develop more mentors who see it not as a ministry, but as the best way of life.

Come and teach us. Come and learn from us.
