Our MOPS ministry follows MOPS International. MOPS International describes a Mentor as:

Invest In Others
Mentoring is about three things:
- Listening to hear – not just listening to respond, but hearing what a mom says.
- 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.
- 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.
