Spiritual Mentoring: Connecting Women to Women

“Older women similarly are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor addicted to much wine, teaching what is right and good, so that they may encourage the young women to tenderly love their husbands and their children, to be sensible, pure, makers of a home where God is honored, good natured, being subject to their own husbands, so that the Word of God will not be dishonored.” Titus 2:3-5.


Following the directive of Titus 2, we desire to provide an opportunity for older and younger women to connect with one another for the purpose of growing in their faith and living for God’s glory.


Mentoring Groups

The intention of these small groups is to build relationships with women in different seasons of life, college age and up.

One-on-One Mentoring

Our approach to mentoring is not a program but rather a lifestyle. This could include spontaneous mentoring moments, intentional one-one-one mentoring and/or asking to be matched with another woman. 


If you desire is to be mentored we encourage you to:

  • Pray

  • Interact with older women at church or in small groups.

  • If the Lord brings someone to mind, ask her.

  • If you have questions or desire to be matched, contact Elizabeth Jore.
