You want to put your faith into action

But the path forward can be confusing. You see a need for more Gospel-centered influence in East Texas but don’t know the best way to engage. The good news is that there’s a program in place to guide your positive impact. When you become a Mentor Connect mentor, you don’t have to question:

  • If you’re qualified. We train all of our mentors and equip them with training, support and accountability.

  • If you’re doing it right. No one is perfect. But you can be confident that Mentor Connect values transparency and dialogue between our mentors, the families we serve, and our local school partners.  We listen to the people we serve so that our programs meet real needs.

  • If you’re living out your faith. As a mentor, you’re a doer of the Word. It’s a tangible way to fulfill the Great Commission that we see in Matthew 28:19-20. You become the hands and feet of Christ when you invest in a student and their family. 

Answer the call

A student joins the program at the request of their family and in partnership with their school campus. These families want their child to grow in discipleship within biblical community. When you say yes to becoming a mentor, you’re saying yes to helping that young person live out God’s purpose for their life. You walk alongside them and their family in community. And that journey has a ripple effect of positive change.

A brighter future

  • A child recognizes they are made in the image of God.

  • Their unique gifts are celebrated.

  • More students gain the confidence and inspiration to become leaders in their community.

Stronger community

  • Individuals of different ages, cultures and backgrounds build mutual understanding  as they walk alongside each other.

  • Churches, schools and families working together.

  • Celebrate unity in Christ.

Spiritual growth

  • Be renewed in your obedience to Christ.

  • Grow closer to God as you experience ministry on a personal level.

  • Show Christ’s love to children who need it most.

Mentor Connect knows you want to be someone who shines Christ’s light in East Texas. In order to do that, you need a way to connect with the real needs of our community.
