Christian Education for all ages.

UNIT 1: Timothy, Titus, Philemon

Lesson 7: Examples of Christian Mentoring

Study Text: 1 Timothy 5:1-4; 2 Timothy 2:1-2; Titus 2:1-5

Central Truth: God uses a variety of relationships in churches to produce change in His people.

Key Verse: Titus 2:7-8 (New King James Version) – 7 In all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.

Today we’ll be looking at mentoring relationships, discussing why and how they are important. In his book, The Mentor Leader,  former NFL coach Tony Dungy says mentoring involves “shaping, nurturing, empowering and growing. It’s all about relationships, integrity, and perpetual learning. Success is measured in changed lives, strong character, and eternal values rather than in material gain, temporal achievement, or status.” When we foster these kinds of relationships in the church, everyone in the family of God benefits.

Mentoring is a relatively new concept, although it is built on ancient principles and practices. It usually involves an older, more experienced individual guiding a younger person’s growth, learning, and development. Old Testament examples include Moses and Joshua, Eli and Samuel, Elijah and Elisha, and Mordecai and Esther. In the New Testament, Paul mentors Timothy, Titus, and Philemon, who then learn to mentor others.

Key Takeaways from Today’s Lesson

  • Each church is intended to be a family of believers, learning and growing together.
  • Part of our job as believers is to care for widows and others in need and to speak out against injustice.
