There is something in the air recently at our church and others, regarding mentoring and discipleship. In this All Saints conversation, Brock Bingaman talks with Roc Bottomly, who has a lifetime’s worth of experience in the value of mentoring.
Mentoring doesn’t have to be complex or difficult or intimidating. Lots of people have reservoirs of wisdom to share with others – wisdom gained through doing life with God, over time. You don’t have to be perfect or have had no struggles to be a good mentor. In fact, just the opposite: broken people who have walked through hard times make good mentors.
How do you get started? We’ll give some practical help for
• How to start a mentoring relationship
• What to talk about during meetings
• How often — and for how long— to meet
The process isn’t complicated, and the results can be life-changing—and life-bringing.Read More

In this podcast, we continue our conversation about the prophetic. As we talked about before, God’s communication is central to life with Him. But what is the actual process of hearing Him like? We’ll talk about what we can do to prepare ourselves to hear God and what it’s like to hear Him — and also how we can discern.Read More
In this podcast, we talk about the spiritual gift of prophecy — the kind described in 1 Corinthians 14 where Christians “speak to other people for their upbuilding and encouragement and consolation” (verse 3). Prophecy is based on who God is: One who speaks and communicates, whose written word begins and ends with His speech. Because prophecy is based on who God is, pursuing it starts not with the gift itself, but with relationship and communion with God.Read More
