Pastor Mentor Groups

Effective pastoral leadership is essential to the health and missional vitality of any local church. It is also a challenging assignment. The TM Pastor Mentor Groups have been created to help pastors lead well by providing a place that is both highly relational and safe–a place where pastors can learn and grow.

Pastor Mentor Groups focus on:

  • Character – the people we need to become
  • Content – the paradigms we need to understand
  • Competencies – the skills we need to master

While all of the groups are organized around the three C’s of character, content and competency, each group tailors its meeting to most effectively meet the needs of the pastors involved. Seasoned pastors with a Kingdom heart serve as the Mentor Pastors.

What participants are saying:

What I appreciate most about my group is the honesty, openness and valuable coaching that has been received.”

We have become friends!

I appreciate being able to talk, share and laugh with guys who truly understand and care.”
