Wholistic Mentoring: A handbook for developing ministerial candidates in the FMC


Wholistic Mentoring: A handbook for developing ministerial candidates in the Free Methodist Church

By Steve Tungate

Current research shows a direct correlation between the presence of strong mentoring relationships and long-term flourishing in ministry. Although other factors play into one’s longevity in ministry, mentors are critically important in setting a trajectory that often lasts throughout one’s years of service. This handbook is designed to walk pastors through a philosophy, model, and approach to mentoring before unpacking the specific processes for guiding ministerial candidates at the local, conference, and deacon levels toward service in the Free Methodist Church. The model proposed draws from the best practices of spiritual direction, ministry coaching, and pastoral supervision to develop a candidate’s heart, head, and hands for service.
