Upcoming Events › Mentoring Next Generation Women: Re-igniting Intergenerational Relationships
- This event is not currently scheduled. Please check back or contact us to let us know of your special interest.
Designed by Dr Barbara Neumann, Dallas Seminary.
Do you feel a bit intimidated, frustrated, or just baffled in relationships with women around you who were raised in a different generational culture? Jesus set in motion the essential Christian tradition of disciplepship – passing on vibrant faith relationally, from one generation to the next. Young women today clamor for mentors/disciplers who will accept and guide them, but too often the older women that have so much to offer them wrestle with a lack of confidence. How can we build bridges of understanding and connection between generations so that we preserve the rich resource of women-to-women relationships as we move toward each other? We’ll consider influential distinctives of the Boomer to Millennial generations and explore encouraging pathways between them. We’ll explore generational values and perspectives on key issues such as God, spirituality, church, relationships, commitment, sexuality and morality, fears and hopes, the impact of technology and globalization. And we’ll explore the roles and desires of both mentors and mentees, discerning needs and commonalities, types of mentoring relationships, common mentoring mistakes, and how to create the nourishing relationships that busy women want to make time for! Some advance preparation.
