Fostering a Mentoring Environment
AbstractThis proposal to foster a mentoring environment by employing teams to supervise and mentor interns may reflect what, in reality, often happens as a student becomes part of a congregation or ministry. Making this explicit will allow for intentional training and equipping of these mentoring teams as a component in the field education program. It will also affirm the truth that the people of God have an important role in the formation of persons for ministry. In a covenantal understanding it will even mean the joyful and satisfying keeping of promises.
