Equipping and encouraging Christian mentors and mentoring organizations to love God, love others, and make disciples in their own community.



To create a restful environment where leaders of mentoring organizations can:
  • Connect with other leaders to share experiences and wisdom.
  • Get equipped with best practices through informal relationships and breakout sessions
  • Be inspired by like-minded, Christian mentoring leaders


We Value Others. - “Everybody is my teacher.”
Everyone has something to offer. Learn from others. Let them learn from you.
Be curious about others and how you can learn from them.
We Walk in Humility. - “More of Him. Less of us.”
Check the ego at the door.
We Strive for Unity. - “We are all on the same team.”
We are all on the same team building the same Kingdom. No comparison.
We are Generous. - “Freely we have received, freely we give.”
Share stories, resources, ideas, and best practices. Listen to see how other’s experiences can make you better.
