Are we qualified to mentor another couple?
Even though the mentee couple is the primary recipient in that we exist to enrich or restore their marriage, we also realize it could NEVER happen without you! They are the primary recipient of the rewards and benefits of mentoring. The local church is the distribution channel where mentors are recruited and trained. The church is also where mentees are identified and prequalified, but YOU are the conduit God uses in a mighty way to enrich or restore a marriage.
Did you pay close attention to the words, “God uses YOU in a mighty way?” The results are NEVER your responsibility. Mentee couples will always be responsible to respond to God and what He desires all marriages to be. God uses your availability, your life experiences, time and His words in the Bible to encourage, convict and teach another couple how to live life in marriage.
Now, how well God uses you does depend on:
If you are willing to invest some or your timeHow willing you are to share how you’ve overcome some of the obstacles in your life and marriageYou understanding mentors are not counselorsHow well you get prepared for each sessionYou being you.We have developed a life-changing process that is easy to follow, allows flexibility and has been field tested for over 3 years. Mentors do not need to be Bible scholars. Bible verses are made available for you and are strategically placed throughout the process. It is acceptable for you to use additional applicable verses not found in our material that have strong meaning to you.
Lastly, one thing we can almost guarantee every mentor couple. Your marriage will be greatly enhanced by mentoring another couple. Based on what we observe with current mentors, all of them express how much more they enjoy heir spouse and how meaningful the mentoring relationship has become to them.
