Mentors

Mentors

PLI is looking for mature women and men who are leaders in their communities to mentor 1,000 Young Leaders participants. Mentors will be trained and equipped with a condensed version of the 1,000 Young Leaders program that empowers them to live missionally as they encourage young leaders to do the same. Mentors disciple and invest in young leaders, deliver regular accountability and encouragement, and trust the Spirit of God to work through the Word to change lives and redeem souls.

While no prerequisite training is required, mentors will receive online mentor training and meet with young leaders monthly. Become a mentor to disciple the next generation of believers!

We are thankful also for partner churches who financially sponsor young leaders.
