His Mansion Mentor Program - One-Year Mentor Training
The Mentor program usually involves men and women, age 18-40, who volunteer to be part of a life-changing process. It builds on the HCC course and runs for 6-to-12 months of in-depth, on-the-job experience. Participants learn to work in the community environment at His Mansion and serve as Mentors to our residents.
His Mansion ministers to men and women who see themselves as broken, lost and outside the mainstream. These men and women often feel unlovable, unwanted, unworthy, unneeded and unacceptable. They typically cannot maintain a love relationship, hold down a job or continue in school. They often indulge in unhealthy sexual activities, substance abuse or other dangerous dependencies to numb the pain.
The Mentor role is to model and facilitate what God can do in a committed life. Mentors are not expected to be the answer-persons, to be super-spiritual, or to be miles ahead of their peers. The role of His Mansion in the process is to coach, encourage and cultivate the Mentor’s spiritual growth and maturity during this exciting time.
A year may seem like a long time, but the dysfunctional behavior that handicaps our residents requires long-term treatment. Mentors becomethe specially-trained brothers and sisters who both model the Spirit-filled Christian life and coach residents in becoming stable individuals.
