***This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Course materials will become available at Noon Central on the start day, and you should plan to spend an hour or two (whenever you choose) every day interacting with the course and on the discussion boards.*** This three week course on mentoring helps adult laypeople form a mentoring relationship with a young person. It approaches mentoring as a dynamic relationship between a mentor, a young person, and the Holy Spirit which produces spiritual growth. Students in this course will gain tools and resources to form faithful, meaningful, and dynamic mentoring relationships. Concepts covered in this course are based on research and experience, and includes what mentoring is, how to begin and maintain a mentoring relationship, and common pitfalls. Discussion in the class is rooted in the participants’ own context and experiences. While the mentoring style taught in this course is primarily intended for one-on-one relationships, the concepts covered could be adapted for the small group context. Participants in this course will become lifetime members of the Timothy Circle online community of mentors as well as given access to the Timothy Circle database of volunteer, work, and school opportunities for young people. For those unfamiliar with BeADisciple online courses: All participants in a BeADisciple course session start and end the course on the same days, and work through class materials at roughly the same pace as lessons are slowly made available throughout the duration of the course. Since this is an online class, participants can log in and interact with each other and the class materials during the times of the week that work best for them. Participants will have the best experience if they can check back every so often to stay engaged in the conversation and contribute more than just once each week. There are a few simple activities to complete, but completing this course shouldn’t require more than a couple hours total of reading and participation each week. This course is more laid back than some other courses on BeADisciple, but please plan to spend a couple of hours each week in discussion and reading through course materials. It is not required, but it is recommended, that you read Spiritual Mentoring: A guide for Seeking and Giving Direction, written by Keith R. Anderson and Randy D. Reese, as a part of this course. This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU. Price: $45.00
