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.
