When did you become interested in mentoring, and in particular mentoring the Millennial generation?
As a young professional in New York City, surrounded by stars and fashion, I often felt about two inches tall. Unseen by some, judged by others. Sure, I had a few friends, but I longed to find a woman who had been in my shoes and was a few steps ahead of me.
One Sunday, I mustered up the courage to talk with a pastor at Times Square, who connected me with a mentor. Her warm eyes and inviting smile put me at ease the first time we met. Surprisingly, she wasn’t put off by my confession of how utterly alone I felt and how distant God seemed. She listened, really listened. She didn’t offer cliché answers or rush to give me advice. I felt known, heard, and understood.
Little did I know the profound influence she would become in my life and how our mentoring relationship would significantly shape me. I have three Millennial adult married children and a deep passion for their generation. For years I have had the privilege to mentor incredible Christian Millennials who love God and seek to embrace, learn and grow in their faith. But, the problem is, they can’t do this alone. They need mentors to come along side of them and pour into their lives on a regular basis. The next generation is the future of the Christian church! You and I need to invest of time and pour into this generation.
