Workshop: Mentoring:  What you need to know to get started
This two hour online workshop is open to all women who want to learn more about mentoring and how to mentor others. Jan Mutter, an ordained CBOQ pastor and spiritual director, will lead this workshop.

Date: March 7th from 7:15 – 9:15 p.m. EST

Mentoring can be a rich and joy-filled experience for women of any age.  God can use the faith journey of one woman to encourage another.  Over time, mentoring becomes an opportunity for different generations of women to walk together.  Christians who have a mentor can benefit from the advice, encouragement, and wisdom offered by someone more mature and experienced in their faith walk.

Join us to learn about mentoring and to find out what you need to know to get started!
