One of the things I am always trying to learn more about in student ministry is mentoring. Beyond all the games, events, and music, we as God’s servants in student ministry are called to mentor students. It’s our task to model and help them grow in their walk with Jesus. We see this in Scripture in 2 Timothy 2:2 when Paul says this to Timothy: “And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” There are many ways we can mentor students, but we need to make sure we are using a strategic model that is effective and actually working. That is where this free ebook comes in! Student Driven Mentoring is a free ebook from LeaderTreks that will help you mentor your students more effectively. Here is a short description of this ebook from LeaderTreks.
In Student Driven Mentoring, Doug Franklin takes a fresh look at what’s working and what’s not when it comes to mentoring. Students have to want to be mentored for it to really work. Doug explores the motivations students have for being mentored and helps you build a program around those motives so that students will be all-in with their mentors. This book also offers a lot of great tips for adult mentors on how to dig deep into students’ lives.
