If you want to make a difference in the world, one of the most impactful things you can do is become a mentor.

You should be a mentor because…

  1. It brings God glory
  2. It is a Christian’s calling (Matthew 28)
  3. It produces godly leaders
  4. It impacts the life trajectory of you and the mentee
  5. It is a joy-filled step you can take
