Why Mentoring?

I had good ones when I was at NTS and despite the fact that I wasn't destined to minister in the same way/place/context as them, I am continually amazed at how their mentorship enriched my life as I grew in ministry. I would just like to offer my life & ministry experience as an instrument for God to use however he wants in other's lives. There was no listing for Missions/Evangelism in the list of passions. Obviously, that is my area of ministry for the past 20 years but I'm open to any ministry focus.

Impactful Books

Compassion by Henri Nouwen - Hit me at a time at NTS when I wasn't sure where all of this ministry stuff was headed. Helped me to realize that regardless of destination, the stuff of ministry is the stuff of a compassionate life of love acted out wherever you are.

Under the Unpredictable Plant by Eugene Peterson - Read it before I got into full time ministry and it was a warning sign at the time but since...its a book I return to when ministry life begins to go askew.

Narnia Series by C.S. Lewis - Read it yearly to remind myself (and my boys) how simple the Gospel story can be told.

The Preaching Life by Barbara Brown Taylor - Love her ability to communicate and inspire the preaching of God's word. She speaks/writes in a voice my hears/heart resonate with.

Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred practices in Everyday Life - Again, when ministry life gets too complicated this book has helped me keep my recognition of God's work in my life...simple.
