Real Life Groups Leadership Podcast: Season 2 Episode 3 – Mentoring Men and Women

Welcome to Episode 3 of our 2nd Season of the Real Life Groups Leadership Podcast! In this episode Chris Short is joined by his wife Sara Short as co-host for our conversation about Mentoring. We have two seasoned Mentors in the room – Randy and Debbi McEnespy. Randy has been an elder at Real Life for many years, and Debbie is a former staff member at Real Life and is now a full-time volunteer here. Both have mentored many people, both individual and couples, in their walk as disciples of Jesus, and we are excited to share their wisdom with you!


Some of the things they share:


  • What is mentoring? How is it different from Discipleship?
  • How can being mentored impact someone’s life?
  • How does mentoring work in conjunction with a small group?
  • Is one-on-one time important?
  • Some things are more appropriate to address with a mentor than with a small group.
  • How can a lack of mentorship affect our lives?
  • How do you go about finding a mentor? Or finding someone to mentor?
  • Do you have to be a certain age to be a mentor?
  • Is the small group leader responsible to mentor all the members of their group?
  • Don’t let fear hold you back!
  • 2 Timothy 2:2
  • One voice, speaking wisdom, can change the legacy of a family.
