Women continue to attend seminary and become ordained in record numbers, yet they have fewer opportunities within denominational systems to receive the training and information that will help them achieve the goals they set for themselves.
Mentoring provides a relationship that abides over time and through transitions in life and ministry.
Cohorts of 4 or 6 women walk together for a specific amount of time. They meet twice monthly and may cover topics such as discernment, challenges in ministry, Enneagram, and Rule of Life. Content can also be tailored to meet the needs of the cohort.
Seasonal challenges can offer a break from everyday routines and an opportunity to reflect in a different way. Challenges last about four weeks with minimal time commitment. Participants are invited to join a forum in order to be in conversation with one another.
Perhaps you are feeling like you need a little more personal direction and guidance. Individual mentoring is a one-on-one experience with Rev. Dr. Susan Rose, executive director of Diakonos Solutions. These session are tailored to the mentee's needs.
Mentoring is about connection and wisdom, both with others and with ourselves. Understanding and integrating your story helps to foster connection and hear the wisdom of the Spirit.
The Enneagram is one tool that can help unpack you and your story. We will explore your strengths, weaknesses and growing edges using the Enneagram.
Building on the connection and wisdom we have fostered with one another and the Spirit, it's time to create a framework for our life moving forward. What are your goals? What are your priorities?
Creating a Rule of Life can help to identify your deeply held values and how to prioritize them. You will write your own Rule of Life, which will be your guide.
We integrate the "academic" process into real life by living the Rule you created for yourself.
Along the way you may find that the paper plan does not survive real life living. That's okay! We make adjustments and continue on!
