Mentoring Program

Applications for the new mentoring cohort will be available on

August 1, 2017.

Baptist Women in Ministry is excited to expand and formalize its mentoring program in 2017, thanks to a generous grant from the Forum for Theological Exploration. This program offers new ministers an opportunity to participate in a year of intentional mentoring with a group of their peers. The groups are led by an experienced Baptist woman in ministry, and each mentee is a Baptist woman who has served in her current area of ministry for less than five years. These mentoring groups serve as communities of support, encouragement, and guidance.

The 2016-2017 Mentoring Cohort includes five groups: two pastor groups, two outside-the-box ministry groups (ministers working in non-profit, social ministry, academic, chaplaincy settings), and an associate ministry group. The groups gathered in January 2017 at the Sacred Heart Monastery in Cullman, Alabama.
