Mentoring with a Mission Presentation 2

  1. 1. Relationships that Matter “Relationship and impact are longings deeply embedded in our hearts that put us in touch with our dependency” -Understanding People p. 110 Session 2 Nicole Miller
  2. 2. What do we Seek in Relationship? Security “We probably have wondered in our many lonesome moments if there is one corner in this competitive, demanding world where it is safe to be released, to expose ourselves to someone else, and to give unconditionally. It might be very small and hidden. But if this corner exists, it calls for a search through the complexities of our human relationships in order to find it.” – Henri Nouwen in Becoming a True Spiritual Community p 37 “Teenage girls need a place where they feel safe and have the freedom to move about independently—a place to grow and develop into their own uniqueness.” -Growing Godly Women p. 6 “Each of us fervently wants someone to see us exactly as we are, warts and all, and still accept us.” -Understanding People p 112
  3. 3. What do we Seek in Relationship? Significance “We all long for something similar. Maybe the word adequacy best describes it. We want to know that we are capable of doing a job that needs to be done. We want to leave a mark on our world, a real and enduring difference that matters.” -Understanding People p. 113 “Some people call it self-esteem. Others say self-worth. Whatever it is—it is the feeling of significance deep inside us that is crucial to our emotional, spiritual, and social stability. Everyone wants to be happy and successful, and to regard himself or herself as a worthwhile human being. What’s so bad about that?” -The Search For Significance student edition p. 5
  4. 4. What do we Seek in Relationship Security Imagine with those around you providing a safe and secure atmosphere for your mentoring/discipleship group: -What does a safe environment look like? -How can you provide this? -What are barriers you have to providing this? Share with those in your group and pick a spokesperson to share with everyone.
  5. 5. What do we Seek in Relationship Significance: Talk with those around you about what it means to provide an atmosphere where girls can find significance: -What does this look like? -What does it take to provide this? - What barriers do you have that make it difficult to provide a message and feeling of significance? Share with those in your group and pick a spokesperson to share with everyone.

  7. 7. Longings Within Casual Longings Convenience, comfort, and personal preference
  8. 8. Longings Within Critical Longings Legitimate hopes for deep human relationships , visible impact on our world.
  9. 9. Longings Within Crucial Longings (Personal Circle) Deep thirsts of our inmost being, only Christ can satisfy these-drive us to Christ in utter dependency no matter what else happens
  10. 10. Longings Within The mentoring relationship is about connecting girls to Christ by utilizing our relationship with Him and our past experiences to get them to a place where they take their crucial longings to the feet of Jesus. What can you do to encourage girls to seek Christ to meet these crucial longings? Take time to discuss this in your groups. Share with the larger group any insights you have.
  11. 11. Longings Within In this session we talked about the two main things we all long for in relationship. We discussed what might cause barriers to providing an environment that provides for these needs. We also discussed what the deep needs are for all of us and how we can connect girls to the source that meets these needs. The next session we are going to talk about the keys to successful discipleship relationships.
