Lead Mentors and Mentors

“Ministry Mentors is a wonderful complement to denominational programs with frequent, one-on-one, face-to-face meetings that supported and affirmed me as I settled into my new position.”
~A Disciples of Christ Pastor, Northern Illinois

Ministry Mentors supports Regional Groups throughout the US, including one non-geographic group, providing mentoring to pastors. Pastors who serve as Mentors in the Ministry Mentors program are active and retired pastors who have demonstrated faithfulness in parish ministry and the approval of their area denominational leaders.
