The discipleship of Women at Gospel City is why our Women’s Ministry exists. We desire to see every woman take a daily step closer to the person she was created to be. This year, we are taking a big step together in intentional discipleship with our 1:1 Discipleship Program. We invite you to join us as we walk through a one-to-one, year-long mentorship program, touching on topics such as prayer, identity, relationships and more!
We believe one-to-one mentorship is modeled in Scripture and a Biblical way to approach personal discipleship. As we grow in Christ-likeness, it is our calling to bring others alongside, teaching them what God’s Word commands, and how we have seen and lived it practically in our lives.
Gospel City Women’s 1:1 Discipleship Program is a year-long commitment in a one-to-one mentoring relationship to encourage and challenge one another in your walk with Jesus.
Apply for Mentorship
Mentee’s will be matched with a Mentor through a prayerful process, taking into account age, location and interest. The 1:1 Mentorship Program is open to all women at Gospel City. The program is extended to include freshmen in high school. Mentorship is contingent based on the number of Mentee to Mentor applicants. Apply by November 30, 2019.
Apply to be a Mentor
How do you know if you are ready to be a Mentor? The 1:1 journey is designed to help you walk with a younger believer, sharing what God has taught you. A few questions you can ask yourself: Do I have a daily practice of being in the Word? Do I have a healthy prayer life? Am I regularly growing and learning in my personal discipleship? You don’t have to be doing it perfectly, we are all a process. If you feel called to be a mentor, but aren’t sure, reach out to a Pastor or Small Group Leader to help you assess if it’s the right step for you! Apply by November 10, 2019.
