Denominational leaders view the M.Div. as the gold standard in preparing young men and women for ministry. however, academic training alone does not prepare someone for ministry.

It concludes that Barnabas and Paul played a crucial role in the pastoral formation of their mentees.

Mentoring And Coaching As A Strategy For Empowering Millennials, Ken Bringas

Doctor of Ministry Projects

The purpose of this project is to engage young Christian leaders in a process of leadership development through mentoring and coaching in order to cultivate leaders for future generations at New Life. New Life has preserved and raised three generations of disciples that have faithfully served in the church. Yet the church has struggled to adequately address the leadership crisis that looms. This is particularly evident with the millennial generation represented at New Life, those born approximately between 1981 and 1996. This age group is an integral part of the church, but it is slowly diminishing in number and influence ...

Generativity Development Of College Students Who Mentor, Nick Knopik May 2019

Generativity Development Of College Students Who Mentor, Nick Knopik

Theses, Dissertations, & Student Scholarship: Agricultural Leadership, Education & Communication Department

Research has shown that college students who mentor demonstrate higher levels of generativity than other college student leaders and general college students; yet, it is unclear whether college student mentors develop generativity over time as a result of their mentoring experience or enter a mentoring relationship because their generativity is already well-developed. This study compared the levels of generativity within individuals and across age cohorts during a one-year time period while controlling for gender for college students who mentor. Three quantitative generativity measures were used to collect data from a sample of 45 college student mentors at two time points ...

Theses, Dissertations, & Student Scholarship: Agricultural Leadership, Education & Communication Department

Additionally, a need exists for further research on the antecedents of generativity (McAdams, 2001, p. 434). The current study sought to fill these gaps in the ...

Reflections On Mentoring And Multi-Generational Ministry, Gordon Macdonald

Journal of Applied Christian Leadership

" I would challenge the multi-generational leaders. I would ask the young people to engage the older people and say, “tell me your story.” I would say to the older people, “You need to listen to the young people because they will build enthusiasm into you. they will give you fresh ideas. and tell them your story. Let them ask you questions. Don’t give them advice unless they ask for it, so we can bring this all together.'”

Grandmothers' Leadership Roles As Reflected In The Lives Of High-Achieving Women: A Qualitative Study Of The Impact Of Grandmothers On Granddaughters During Their Formative Years, Sylvia E.M. Asante

Dissertations & Theses

The purpose of this study is to document and recognize the role of grandmothers as leaders, role models, and mentors who can positively influence the lives of their granddaughters. Grandmothers’ roles are not typically associated with leadership, and this phenomenon of presenting grandmothers as effective leaders will fill a void and add to the canon of leadership literature. The use of phenomenological study, which describes the lived experience (Husserl, 1970), as well as transformative leadership and feminist theory perspectives will be pivotal to this study. Due to the dearth of data on grandmothers’ leadership roles, this phenomenological study will "give ...

It is also important to understand that some youth cannot be reached. Mentoring is not fail-safe. At times, it ...
