We are pleased to offer our mentor training programme in residential mode at the Ammerdown Centre in Somerset. Leading the training programme is Dr Rick Lewis.

"I’m passionate about mentoring and the potential it has to prepare and strengthen disciples for leadership in mission. Training others for this ministry is a rich and joyful experience as together we learn fresh approaches to discerning how God is working in a person’s life and how to encourage them to respond faithfully. Whether you are an experienced mentor looking to sharpen and diversify your skills or just starting out in mentoring ministry, I’m confident you will find this training to be stimulating, accessible and practical. As a bonus, your own spiritual growth will be enriched." Rick Lewis.



The aims of the training are to provide practical training as a spiritual mentor; to move beyond education to build competency in mentoring ministry; and to apply training materials to the actual mentoring partnership of trainees. The structure of the training involves four stages: instruction, action, supervision, and reflection.

Each workshop is split into themes, as follows:


Workshop 1: Foundations for Christian Mentoring

  • Understanding mentoring in relation to other means of personal growth
  • The value and relevance of mentoring in the contemporary context
  • Overview of the mentoring cycle
  • Biblical basis for mentoring
  • Creating an effective mentoring environment
  • Getting organised for mentoring
  • How to discern the most relevant issues


Workshop 2: Applying Mentoring tools and Principles

  • The place of goal setting in mentoring
  • Helping people construct their own action steps
  • Employing prayer and the Bible in mentoring
  • Questioning and listening skills
  • Using reflective writing in mentoring


Workshop 3: Developing Mentoring Skills

  • Varieties of types and styles of mentoring
  • Providing positive accountability
  • Issues in mentoring leaders
  • The mentor as change agent
  • Personal development paths for mentors and mentorees


The programme is made up of three workshops (two-days per session) and run over eight months at each of our campuses.

Residential programmes include training, personal supervision sessions during the eight months, the core textbook, access to power points PLUS times of corporate worship and all accommodation and meals during workshops. Cost: £460

"Whenever Rick has taught our students they have found him challenging, engaging and inspiring...This has been true of day events and three-day events. Rick has the exceptional gift of being able to draw on his own practice and experience and communicate what he has learned in ways that ministerial students can grasp and make use of."

- Stephen Finamore, Principal, Bristol Baptist College, United Kingdom
