If you sincerely desire to encourage others and guide them in taking the next steps in their spiritual walk, you can become a mentor. Mentoring is not counselling, nor is it intended to replace professional help. As a mentor, your role is to empathize, provide people with helpful resources, and guide them in their spiritual journey. If you’re a caring person who is in a committed and growing relationship with God, you can become a mentor!
Don’t worry if you’re not the most tech-savvy person in the world: if you can send and receive an email, you have the technical skills to be a mentor. We just ask that you check your messages regularly and that you reply to any mentees as soon as possible, but definitely within 3 days.
Before you get started, we ask all who are interested in becoming an online mentor to:
- Be 25 or older.*
- Submit your application.
- Agree with our Statement of Faith.
- Follow our Code of Conduct.
- Provide a spiritual reference
- Complete Mentor Training.
- Submit a Criminal Record Check (usually free in the U.S. and Canada).
*If you are under 25, you can still apply to take our mentor training for your own personal use, which will help equip you to transition any conversation into a spiritual one.
Also, we would love for you to consider becoming a prayer partner with us. To subscribe for your weekly newsletter and join our prayer team, go to https://thelifeproject.com/subscribe.
