The Art of Mentoring

Embracing the Great Generational Transition

by Darlene Zschech


Price: £9.99
Publisher:Bethany House imprint of Baker Pub from Lion
Published:23 August 2012
Darlene Zschech writes from her considerable experience as a leader and mentor. Her focus is on building bridges to the next generation of leaders and helping them to grow into all that God has for them. She writes in her introduction: "I've spoken to many leaders who have outstanding dedication to the things of God and yet seem to lack revelation about raising the next generation to serve Him." She invites us to learn from her own journey - mistakes and all - so that we can pour our lives into seeing the dreams of others come true. Her approach is to share 14 'values' that she feels are vital in shaping the lives of both mentor and mentoree. Each value is based around a Scripture passage.

The challenge of this book is to be generous to the younger ones in our churches and to recognize and encourage their unique gifts. If you want to know how to pass on the baton to new leaders, this book is for you.
