Poised is a mentorship ministry looking to connect women who have experienced God's love and grace with those who are in need to experience the same.
We are currently recruiting mentors and mentees for the next session!
Next session will run from September 2019 - April 2020.
Mentors: We will be looking for women who would like to be a part of the leadership (mentors) for Poised! If God is tugging at your heart right now to invest a small amount of time to make a big impact, than this opportunity could be for you! September will hold a four week, online training period for all new mentors to help them feel equipped.
Mentees: We will be looking for women who would like a mentor to enrich their life. You must be willing to grow in your relationship with Christ, be willing to glean from someone older who has Godly wisdom to give, and commit for the entire duration of the session to invest in this relationship. September will hold a four week, online training for all new mentees.
There will be a one-time $30 fee for all mentees that will include: 8-month mentoring program, Kill the Spider book by Carlos Whittaker (for trainings), bound bible studies (Worth of a Woman), t-shirt, and graduation dinner. Scholarships are available for mentees with financial hardship. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for scholarship information.
1. September Training: All new mentors and incoming mentees will be required to attend/watch our September trainings. The trainings are done almost entirely online through live discussions on Facebook (can be replayed later if you are not able to make the live video). Completion of the training will be mandatory for all mentees prior to being assigned a mentor.
Once Program Officially Launches October 1:
2. Contact Mentee/Mentor Weekly: This can be through phone, text, or social media. Be intentional about dropping an encouraging line.
3. Meet with Mentee/Mentor Monthly: We encourage you to find a place where you can meet for coffee or tea one time per month.
4. Serve Together: If you are already serving in a ministry at VBF or in the community, we will be encouraging you to join those same ministries for the next 6 months. The best way they can glean from a mentor is to see them in action.
We are praying that God leads MANY mentors/mentees our way, so that we can make a big impact in many women's lives! Remember for potential mentors, we aren't looking for perfect women, but women who have experienced their Father's grace and walk in His love.
