MOPS Mentoring

Our MOPS ministry follows MOPS International. MOPS International describes a Mentor as:
"A Mentor is someone who walks a few steps ahead and brings perspective on mothering, womanhood and relationships. Through one-on-one relationships, Mentors communicate with vulnerability and honesty and provide a foundation for acceptance and trust. You support mothers, not because you have all the answers, but because you know that’s what Jesus would be doing."

Invest In Others

Mentoring is about three things:

  1. Listening to hear – not just listening to respond, but hearing what a mom says.
  2. Empathizing with her experience. You aren’t in the relationship to fix everything, but you can let each woman know you care about her experiences and how they make her feel.
  3. Sharing what has worked for you. You don’t have all the answers, but you know the one who does and you can point her to him.

Our MOPS mentors attend MOPS meetings (two Tuesday mornings per month, 9:30–11:30 a.m.). If you are interested in becoming a Mentor, please contact Elizabeth Duncan, Adult Ministry Director, , 941-1570.
