COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP
The Legacy of a Leader
2 Timothy 2:2

Two Questions:

1)

2)

Two Kinds of Mentoring:

1) The “big brother” approach with younger kids.

2) The classic approach of a mentor/apprentice.

I. ESTABLISHING THE NEED FOR MENTORING

Webster defines a mentor as “a trusted counselor or guide.”

A) Historical Model

From the time of Hammurabi in ancient Babylon (18th century BC), we see specific references to craftsmen who had apprentices. Also, you see it with carpenters, composers, and masons. In Medieval times, the apprentice would sleep in the shop of the master craftsman. With the coming of the Industrial and Technological Revolutions, we’ve seen a serious blow to the personal side of mentoring.

B) The Biblical Model

C) The Family Model

D) The Need for Those Who Will Model It

We have PERSONAL limitations:

I cannot lead people…

• __ than they are willing to __

• __ than they are willing to __

• __ than they are willing to __

• __ than they are willing to __

We have PEOPLE limitations:

I cannot lead people…

• Beyond my __

• Above my __

• Where __

• If I lack __

II. ESTABLISHING THE EXPECTATIONS FOR MENTORS

Leadership Principle: If you can’t mentor, you need to find a mentor.

3) Are you __?
