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.

• 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.
