TOPIC: Mentorship

OPENING PRAYER: Almighty Father, do not let my life lack direction.

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Timothy 1:1-4 KJV (RCCG Sunday School TEACHER’s Manual 16 February 2020)

1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;

2 Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

3 As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,

4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.

MEMORY VERSE: “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 11:1S

RCCG Sunday School TEACHER’s Manual 16 February 2020 LESSON INTRODUCTION:

Mentorship is a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. The mentor may be older or younger than the person being mentored, but he or she must have a certain area of expertise. Christian mentoring is largely about modeling a mature Christian life and being there for the student when questions arise. This does not mean that the teacher is perfect, but that he has more knowledge and experience with the word of God and is seeking to live a victorious Christian life. So many character defects and deviation from biblical principles can be traced to the absence or failure of mentorship.
