Mentoring for Spiritual GrowthI am passionate about discipleship, and about Christians being mentored by other Christians.  I believe youth work is really successful when young people have an older person who walks alongside them supporting, encouraging, celebrating and challenging.  So I was interested to read Tony Horsfall’s book, Mentoring for Spiritual Growth: Sharing the Journey of Faith.

The book is written not for youth work, although hugely helpful for it, but more as a challenge to the wider church to do more journeying with individual believers.  It spends a lot of time examining the skills and qualities of a mentor, and exploring how we can support those with question of faith, or those who are in ‘the dark night of the soul’.

It was a helpful guide to a topic which I’ve learnt lots about in an education setting, but very rarely read about in a Christian faith setting.

Married to the amazing Sarah and raising Jakey, Daniel, Amelia, Josh & Jonah in our blended family. Passionate for Jesus, social work & sport.
