The Ministry Mentor program consists of Michigan UMC clergy (mostly retired) who offer mentoring services free to other Michigan UMC clergy.
A common theme emerges when asking successful individuals, including pastors, to what they attribute their success. That theme is having been blessed by a mentor—someone who took a personal interest in them, provided guidance, encouragement, support, and accountability. Ministry Mentors offers independent, confidential, comprehensive, and competent support for clergy of all denominations as they experience the rewards and challenges of one the world’s most challenging professions.
Ministry Mentors, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1999, is a spiritually based, cross-denominational organization that arranges and supports one-on-one mentoring relationships among clergy in order to enhance the health and effectiveness of pastors and congregations. By selecting active and re-tired pastors who have excelled in ministry, Ministry Mentors provides the structure in which quality mentoring can flourish.
Ministry Mentors serves pastors regardless of position of ministry, denominational association, gender, ethnic background, age, sexual orientation, geographical location, or social position. Mentors are pastors who seek to support other pastors.
