Overview of Radical Mentoring:

  • Holding men to a higher commitment in regard to their faith
  • 12-month mentoring season with a deep commitment, 3 hours per month
  • Creating a process for other organizations to use as a plan for mentoring/discipleship
  • If men are known, the conversations flow much more easily
  • Created as a supplemental resource and guide
    • Important for people to continue to regular groups

How can a church implement this?

  • Start slow: broad advertisement could water it down
  • Not exclusive, but created through “shoulder-touch” involvement (inviting people personally)
  • Referral process once people who have gone through the mentoring

How can this apply and how does it impact Family Ministry?

  • Benefits the “dads” within the church
  • Churches that are “growing young” are placing key discipleship-focused relationships in the lives of the next generation
  • Mentoring = Discipleship
