MOODY THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY & GRADUATE SCHOOL MRS. BENJAMIN Weekly Mentoring Meeting
1.Connecting Time Start each meeting with some connecting time. How are you doing? How was you r week?
2. Ministry Discussion This meeting time is to discuss what is happening in your ministry areas. What ministry has taken place since we last met? What went on in that ministry? What questions or issues were raised for you by the experience? What did you learn from the experience? What do you plan to do (differently) in the future?
3. Students Learning Goals Focus on your development by making time to review and discuss learning goals for the internship. How does the ministry activity relate to the goals set forth in the Equipping Plan? Are you making satisfactory progress toward those goals? Are you actually learning from these ministry experiences or just going through the motions? What ministry priorities need to be set for the next two weeks to move you in the right direction toward meeting his or her goals?
4. Spiritual and Vocational Implications Move from “doing” focus of the internship to the “being” part of the internship. How is God working through your ministry experiences to reveal Himself and to mature you? How are your experiences in ministry informing, reforming, affirming, or calling in to question your call and sense of giftedness? What should you do to advance the growth and discovery process? Are there personal roadblocks, blind spots, and fears that you would like to discuss? How can I specifically pray for you this week?
Role of the Intern during the Mentoring Time Need to take a “proactive role” in the mentoring relationship as well as in the mentoring meetings. Meetings serve as an avenue to process the experience of your leadership opportunities. Your responsibility is to ensure the meetings take place and that the experience is beneficial. Communication is essential! Communicate items that need to be on the agenda clearly to the Field Instructor.
