The idea of mentoring a student can feel overwhelming in the midst of life’s busyness. But if you make the time, you won't regret it.

Key Points:

  • The most impactful thing you can do in youth ministry is to mentor a few. (Mark 9:2-13.)
  • Leverage the large group time to make meaningful connections with the students you are – or will be – mentoring.
  • Send topics during the week and use technology to mentor and stay connected to your “few.”

Bible Text:

2 Timothy 2:2 You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.
