This resource is for those at any stage on the journey towards lay or ordained ministerial vocations, who might feel that they would like to have a knowledgeable friend, who is like them, to accompany them along the way.
All the mentors are volunteers who are passionate about supporting people from underrepresented groups on their vocational journey. Your mentor will not be making decisions on your process or be your advocate.
You and your mentor decide when, how, and how often to meet and they will walk with you for as long as you need them to.
More mentors will be added as we get more volunteers.
“Exploring vocation is a journey that we always take with others, because discerning vocation is the task of the church, not just individuals. Coming alongside someone seeking to discern where God is at work in their lives and where God is leading, is a huge privilege. Being a mentor will be a rich experience and a blessing: the blessing of seeing the God of love at work in the life of his people.”
Archbishop Justin Welby
