6200 Mentoring

This fall we began partnering with Upper Room and launched our 6200 Adult Mentoring program.  We believe that there is something beautiful about entering into life-on-life relationships with one another.  This fall we paired two interested individuals to learn from one another.

Timeline (sample- will open again Fall 2019!)

  • Summer ’18 – Registration open & mentor interviews

  • September 15th – Applications due

  • October 2nd – Matching Night #1

  • October 9th – Matching Night #2

  • October 23rd – Matching Night #3 & pairs matched

  • November 20th – Kick-off event!

The Process & Expectations

  • Those interested to become a mentor, be mentored, or who are open to either should apply below.  This is a one year commitment (September-May) although we hope your relationship would continue as long as both individuals would like.

    • Both mentors & mentees are required to submit a background check (see our policy here)​

    • Mentors will be interviewed and have a reference check

  • Mentors & mentees are expected to participate in all three weeks of Matching Nights​

    • The first two weeks provide the opportunity to get to know each other and see where connections may form​

    • The third week is for initial training, pair introductions, and time for pairs to connect

  • Pairs are matched based on things such as (but not limited to) information received in the application & mentor interviews, connections made during matching nights, similar hopes & desires for relationships, location, and stage of life. ​

  • Once matched, the pair goes through a relationship agreement document to establish ground rules

  • The desired expectation is that pairs would “meet” twice a month with other communication between​

    • Meeting can be going to church together, grabbing dinner, running errands, attending kids sporting events, volunteering together, etc. ​
