Churches can use this training in a workshop setting. We recommend four 30-minute sessions for a total of 2 hours. Download and print off the Mentor Training Packet (pdf) for use during the workshop.

Prep before the workshop with the following checklist:

  • Create a church-wide process for taking mentor requests.
  • Create a church-wide process for registering trained mentors.
  • Assign a mentoring admin at your church. This is the person who oversees “handoffs” at your church, connecting trained mentors to those who have requested help. This will be critical once you have mentors ready to serve.
  • Create a follow up strategy for your mentors. Each newly trained mentor should be assigned a “coach” who will follow up with him or her over the next 6 months.

The coach’s job is as follows:

  • If possible, lead discussion groups for each session with his or her trainees during the workshop.
  • Coordinate 3-6 week practice sessions for trainees following the workshop, either as a group or in pairs.
  • Serve as a liaison between your trainees and the mentoring admin to help them get connected to the mentoring needs in your church.
  • Follow up at least once a month with your mentors for 6 months or more. Use topics at
