Mentoring Program for Young Professionals


Still finding your place in the world? Need support and motivation — the fellowship of someone who has been there? Get a leg up by learning from old pros. Mentors are soul friends, confidantes, and people who have walked paths you wish to walk but have not walked yet. They will support you as a whole person across the breadth of your journey – professional, relationships, and spiritual.

What is a mentor?

They are not therapists, investors in your business venture, parents, teachers, or tax advisors. They are godly, scripturally-centered people of wisdom who have demonstrated character and capacity in their professions and desire to help you to listen to your life, follow Jesus Christ more diligently, pursue the dreams and vision God is birthing in you, and access the tools and skills you will need to get there. They are a listening and loving ear, outside eyes to help you see options in circumstances you may not see, and occasionally, a helpful nudge. Our mentors are persons with knowledge, skills, talents, experience, and a living faith – in other words, they have expertise and character and are willing to share those with you.

What is a mentee?

A mentee is someone looking for another to walk beside and share their wisdom from the road. A mentee does not have to be a member of St. John the Divine, but their mentors will be. A mentee also does not need to be a Christian, but their mentors will be and their faith has been central to their success.

Getting Started

If you are interested in a mentor, simply request one!

Request a mentor

After you request a mentor…

  1. We will identify a potential mentor who we think specifically matches up with you.
  2. We help you connect to the potential mentor for coffee.
  3. You meet two times and see if the mentor/mentee relationship is a good fit for both of you. If it is not, let us know and we can easily recycle.
  4. You meet with the mentor between 1 and 3 times per month depending on your needs and schedule.
  5. You will evaluate the continuing nature of your relationship every six months thereafter
