We are looking for men and women who have a strong relationship with the Lord that are willing to commit to mentor our Crosspoint students. These relationships are to help the student grow in their relationship with Christ so they will walk with Him on a daily.
EXPECTATIONS OF A MENTOR
- Mentors must have a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and walk closely with Him on a daily basis.
- Mentors must be in the Word of God on a daily basis and have a strong desire to develop growth in prayer, worship and reading the Word.
- Prayer is essential to this ministry. Mentors always take time with the Lord and ask for His Spirit to guide them before entering a meeting with their student.
- Every mentor goes through a screening which includes background and driving record check and interview process. Safety is important to us, as well as matching our mentors with the right student.
- Commitment is very important to this program. Mentors must be willing to commit for an agreed time to meet with their student 4-8 hours a month.
- Is willing to commit to training throughout the year.
- You will be working with an Advisor and Director to be matched with your student.
- Mentors are assigned to an Advisor. Advisors are Mentor's accountability person and go-to with questions or concerns. If a mentor's Advisor is unavailable, then they may go to the Director with concerns.
- Mentors will be asked to fill out a monthly report to let their Advisor and Director know they have been meeting, as well as update them on how things are going.
- Our policy is to work with parents not against them. If a mentor is having a problem with their student's parent, it is their job to inform their Advisor regarding the situation.
- If mentors must pick up or drive their student home, they must have a registered license and good driving record, car insurance as well as permission/waiver from the parents.
- Confidentiality is very important, but mentors are not counselors. If mentors have questions/concerns or need advice they may speak ONLY to their Advisor or Director.
- Mentors agree to not be under the influence of alcohol or drug substances when meeting with their student. If this happens, mentors can expect their relationship to be terminated.
