TYPES OF MENTORSHIP
PHYSICAL RELATIONSHIP MENTORSHIP: the mentor and the mentee have physical contact regularly and even know each other before now.
ONLINE MENTORSHIP: mentorship where both mentor and mentee may not have a physical contact but meet regularly online especially on social media sites and they relate.
QUIET MODE MENTORSHIP: here the mentor does not know that he has mentees who are closely watching him and quietly modelling their lives styles to that of the mentor.
Your life as a Christian leader should attract people to come to you for mentorship.
Your life as a youth should motivate an elder brother in faith to volunteer to mentor you.
Jesus is the greatest mentor on who ever lived this planet. Just in three years he turned fishermen into great evangelist that started Christianity that has reached us today.
