Why Mentoring?

The Christian faith is imitative and interpersonal. We do not grow alone. Rather, we grow with the help of others, and are influenced by their godliness. Jesus said, “follow me.” Paul said, “follow me as I follow Christ.” The Spirit of God uses more mature believers to guide younger believers.

At RTS Orlando, we desire to train mature Christian leaders who are grounded in the Gospel, have Christ-like character, know how to apply biblical truth to life, and are effective church leaders who are trained in the basic skills of ministry.

What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is about leadership transfer and the preparation of the next generation to proclaim the gospel with power. While there are differing types of mentoring relationships (disciple, teacher, coach, counselor, sponsor, etc.), all of them involve the mentor teaching, encouraging, and empowering the mentored on the journey of following Jesus.

Our prayer is for our students to be in relationships that will help them as they prepare to follow God’s call on their lives and to strengthen their imitation of Christ.
