IFD995 – Timothy Circle Mentor Training

http://www.beadisciple.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Timothy-Circle-Mentor-Training.jpgIFD995 – Timothy Circle Mentor Training

Course Dates: June 4-22, 2018

This is a three week course on mentoring as a dynamic relationship between a mentor, a young person, and the Holy Spirit that has the power to produce great spiritual growth. This course is designed to provide tools and resources to form faithful, meaningful, and dynamic mentoring relationships.

It is primarily intended for one-on-one relationships, but the concepts covered could be adapted for the small group context.  Based on research and experience, the course covers fundamental concepts and qualities of mentoring, how to begin and maintain mentoring relationships, and common pitfalls.  The course instructor will encourage discussion within the class that is rooted in the participants’ own context and experiences.

Participants in this course will become lifetime members of the Timothy Circle online community of mentors as well as given access to the Timothy Circle database of volunteer, work, and school opportunities for young people.

For those unfamiliar with BeADisciple online courses:
All participants in a BeADisciple course session start and end the course on the same days, and work through class materials at roughly the  same pace as lessons are slowly made available throughout the duration of the course. Since this is an online class, participants can log in and interact with each other and the class materials during the times of the week that work best for them. Participants will have the best experience if they can check back every so often to stay engaged in the conversation and contribute more than just once each week. There are a few simple activities to complete, but completing this course shouldn’t require more than a couple hours total of reading and participation each week.

This course is more laid back than some other courses on BeADisciple, but please plan to spend a couple of hours each week in discussion and reading through course materials.

It is not required, but it is recommended, that you read Spiritual Mentoring: A guide for Seeking and Giving Direction, written by Keith R. Anderson and Randy D. Reese, as a part of this course.

This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU.

Price: $45.00

Past participants in this course have said…

“Although the emphasis of this course was focused on a ‘one-on-one’ setting the environment of a class of youth I believe will provide opportunity to put into practice similar techniques and questions utilized in a mentor-mentee setting.”

“I am grateful for the experience and the feedback from Julie and the fellow students.  I feel better equipped and prepared to enter into thoughtful conversation with the youth.”
