Roman Catholicism Mentoring

Detailed information about 2020 Forum Mentoring is not yet available but will be posted in the future. Please review the information from the 2019 Forum for a look at the types of mentoring that may be available at the 2020 Forum.

Roman Catholicism is a global player in the Christian world. For Evangelical Protestants, it is not always easy to deal with it. Doctrinally speaking, there is a five century long controversy over foundational truths of the Gospel. Recent ecumenical developments make the picture slightly different, but do they make it radically different? Depending on whether or not you live in a majority Roman Catholic situation, your perception of it may differ significantly. People struggle over what to do with Rome: should we be open to dialogue, co-operation, even common prayer and witness? Should we keep the focus on evangelizing Roman Catholics, or should we change our attitude? Forum Roman Catholicism Mentoring has been designed to provide guidance to pastors and leaders who are asking these questions.

This type of mentoring is also offered in the cohort mentoring format.
