Mentoring Skills Training Videos

Relationships are central to the Holy Trinity and therefore the church. Isolation is an all-too-common tactic of Satan. This mentor skills training equips the church to rise to the occasion of relationships. From relaxed companionship to intentional mentorship, this seminar equips the church to be members one of another. The training has been broken down into five separate videos to make it easier for viewing. Each video will focus on certain topics of mentoring and relationships. A handout for this training can be downloaded.

This video introduces the ACCFS Mentorship Skills Training. The training will focus on topics such as: What is a Mentor? Building a Relationship and How to be a Mentor.

Part 1 – Members One of Another  
In years gone by, the Scriptures provided meaning to the word “membership.” Since then, culture adopted the term and has emptied it of its meaning. Now we commonly use the term out of Biblical context. This section endeavors to restore biblical meaning to the term “member”. In so doing, we lay a foundation for relationships in the church.

Part 2 – Mentorship  
What do we mean by “mentor”? Providing some definition around the term mentor goes a long way in understanding roles and purposes for intentional relationships within the church.

Part 3 – Building a Relationship
“Starting is half the battle…” so the adage goes. In many ways, the same is true for mentor relationships. Fortunately, there are some easy, straight forward ways to make this beginning.

Part 4 – Skills of Mentoring
What are some of the finer points on how to mentor? How do you manage expectations? How do you evaluate progress? How do you exhort, encourage, advocate, and praise? A great deal of help is offered when basic skills are unlocked.

Part 5 – Mentees, Accountability, and Boundaries
Christ found reason to retreat and relax from the needs of the masses. In like manner, we too should have appropriate boundaries in place in our lives. We are not responsible “for” people, we are responsible “to” them. Discernment is needed to evaluate the limits of the help we can provide another person. Acting with appropriate boundaries insures we provide healthy help.
