Online One-on-One Year-Round Mentoring

Do you have questions and challenges in your ministry?

Would you benefit from a mentoring session(s) from an experienced senior leader not just at the annual Forum but during the year?

Online One-on-one Mentoring seeks to unite, equip, and resource evangelical leaders personally, professionally, and spiritually throughout the year by connecting them with experienced mentors and leaders who can mentor them and speak into their lives and ministries. Online One-on-one mentoring expands support to leaders and facilitates mentoring connections throughout the year by:

  • Recruiting trusted ELF leaders as mentors with extensive experience in their field and a heart to serve
  • Providing a platform for leaders to find suitable mentors in their field or issue area and request an online meeting time.

Since leaders have such a wide variety of needs, the Forum will offer many different types of mentoring in areas ranging from Leadership and Management to Academic to Personal Counselling.

Who Can Sign Up?

The Forum One-on-One Year-Round Mentoring will first be available to evangelical leaders who attended the European Leadership Forum.

See a list of the mentoring types here:
