Guiding Others on Their Leadership Journey. Foreword by Eugene H. Peterson. When good leaders are needed, when the work is urgent, our immediate reaction is to enlist new leaders. Instead we are called to invest in new leaders.
Good leaders are developed in and through slow, deep mentoring. To think otherwise is to embrace the myth of the quick fix. We proceed, instead, by paying careful attention to and joining in the work God is already doing in people's lives.
This book is designed to help you know better how to come alongside others as a guide and a friend, to invest in their spiritual formation and leadership. If you want long-term impact on the lives of future leaders, how you guide must be as important as the content you impart. Only then will you see lifelong change and empowerment in those you mentor.
Randy Reese and Robert Loane show you how to make the most of the crucial ministry of mentoring. They offer a biblically grounded approach that draws on the research and teaching of Bobby Clinton as well as their own experience in resourcing churches and Christian organizations.
Jesus Christ still calls people to become leaders in a lifelong journey of conforming to his image. Join him as you guide others through deep mentoring.
"At the heart of this book is the conviction that leadership formation involves 'the simple act of paying attention to another.' Simple? It sounds revolutionary--except that it is an ancient and true way. You do not have to read this book to pay attention to another. Just do it. But as you do you will find Deep Mentoring a most helpful guide, rich in ideas, experience, sources and practices. I plan to recommend it to the leaders of our own mentoring community. I heartily commend it to you." â€”Leighton Ford, president, Leighton Ford Ministries
