Pick an athlete at the top of their field – any athlete, any sport – and they will all have one thing in common. No matter how different the sport, how different the athlete, there is a common thread that runs through their excellence.
They all have coaches and mentors.
People who can guide them, point out their weaknesses, and help them to improve.
Sometimes this relationship is formal and professional (coaches who are employed to help us improve) and sometimes it is more personal and informal (the various mentors who shape us).
You will find that those who excel have this common trait in other fields as well.
At LEAD, we believe in the importance of coaching and mentoring for those who are in ministry. In this month’s 10 Minute Toolbox we talk to two different leaders about how mentor relationships bring hope to their ministry.
