Mentoring

Each student accepted into the studies in ministry minor will be paired with a mentor from the Holland and/or Hope community. This mentoring relationship will last two years.

Mentors will be chosen in conversation with each student, the director of the minor and the coordinator of mentoring and internships.

The type of mentoring envisioned here is “spiritual mentoring,” which can be defined as “a triadic relationship between mentor, mentoree, and the Holy Spirit, where the mentoree can discover, through the already present action of God, intimacy with God, ultimate identity as a child of God and a unique voice for kingdom responsibility.”[1]
