FLOURISH MENTEE WAITLIST

MENTEE FAQ

FLOURISH is a mentorship journey starting in August of each year for the women of CrossCity Christian Church. Flourish is always open to new registrations. FLOURISH connects seasoned women of faith with younger women of faith in an organic way to provide space for a mentoring relationship. These relationships are meant to be encouraging, real, and authentic. They provide a space for women to connect one-on-one in their walks with Jesus.

The goal of FLOURISH is to open the Word together and spur one another on. Jesus modeled this idea of mentorship in His journey through life on earth with his disciples. We seek to grow deeper in our faith and share life together.

FLOURISH is open to mentees college-aged or above. High School students are encouraged to seek mentorship through CrossCity’s Student Ministry.

The goal is to meet in person with your mentor once per month in order to grow in a connecting relationship. In order for the soil to be watered in this relationship, we encourage weekly check-ins utilizing some form of technology such as text message, Marco Polo, Zoom, FaceTime or phone. This is a time to share what you are learning in your devotional time, to check-in, and prayer together.

Some mentor-mentee duos will end up meeting more in person, (our preferred form of contact) but it is really about finding what mode of communication works best for both of you. We encourage you to share what will work best for you with your mentor from the beginning.

The great part about FLOURISH is that it seeks to accomodate age, life stage, and previous time commitments offering a variety of options to choose to participate in with your mentor. Again, the goal is opening the Word of God together however that may look.

Each mentor and mentee will receive a resource book that includes a weekly study, FLOURISH: A Mentoring Journey published by LifeWay through Passion City Church. To go along with this, some mentor-mentees may choose to add the following options:

  • YouVersion Bible App Devotionals – Choose Topics together
  • Read a Daily Devotion Book
  • Read a book that follows the current session

The commitment we ask is for you and your mentor to say YES for 9 months to 1 year walking alongside another woman in the faith.

Here’s the time break-down:

  • Meet face-to-face (or via Zoom) once per month
  • Find a means of communication to check in weekly that works for both of you
  • Celebrate our Kick-off and Closing Celebrations with your Mentor

Kick-off and end of season celebration dates will be given to you in advance at the start of the FLOURISH season. We highly encourage you to participate in these events so you feel connected to a larger community of Women! Your monthly meetings with your Mentor can be set up during either our kick-off event or during your first face-to-face gathering so that you can both keep them a priority in your schedule for the next 9-12 months.

Some women choose to continue meeting with their mentor after the FLOURISH “program season” is over if the mentor is able to do so. Others decide to close out the chapter of mentoring. Some mentee’s sign up to be mentors the following year or find their next form of connection at CrossCity (i.e. joining weekly Bible Study, participating in Rooted etc.). This is flexible and we encourage you to talk to your mentor towards the end of the program so you both are able to make the best decision with you both in mind.

The leadership team of FLOURISH gathers together with all the mentor and mentee applications and prayerfully matches applications with great intention. We consider many factors when pairing a mentor/mentee. We will do our best and will take any specific requests into consideration that you list on your application.

Each mentor in FLOURISH has a captain who is there to support them throughout their journey with their mentee(s). They are also an available resource to you as the mentee. Your mentor’s Captain will be at all the FLOURISH EVENTS. You will have the contact information for your mentor’s Captain and they will be an available resource should you need their help during the FLOURISH program.

Yes, we believe that you should call CrossCity your church home to be a part of this mentoring journey. Your mentor will also be attending CrossCity.

Yes, the cost for mentees is $50 – covering the cost of the book and program expenses. A deposit of $25 is needed to hold your spot and then the remaining $25 is due at the FLOURISH kick-off event which covers all your FLOURISH materials. We value excellency and want to provide you with a great experience for your time in FLOURISH and this amount will help make this year possible.

If you are in need of a scholarship, or you would like to donate towards the scholarship fund, please reach out to us at FLOURISH@mycrosscity.com

Visit womens.mycrosscity.com/FLOURISH to fill out the form and register. These questions are designed to help us match you, so please elaborate whenever possible. Registration details can be found on our website.

Time and place will be determined each calendar year and will be communicated to you at the beginning of your FLOURISH season. All events are meant to be fun, memorable and an experience for mentees and mentors.

Than you for considering this journey of mentorship. We invite you to prayerfuly consider what God is leading and calling you towards in your faith journey.

Are you pursing Christ with your life? Do you desire to walk alongside others, pray for one another, hold one another accountable? Are you yourself open to being mentored or have an informal mentor in your spiritual life? Is the Word a part of your daily and weekly rhythms?

This program is not about being “perfectly” seasoned in your faith in order to mentor. It is about your heart to serve another woman and walk with them. There is no such thing as “perfect maturity” by the way!! Jesus is the only one who is perfect and the goal is seeking to follow His example.

Mentors do not have all the answers – in fact that is not what we want as mentors for FLOURISH. We will equip you with resources when you feel stuck, you will have a Captain who is there to partner with you, and a group of other fellow mentors to lean on for support, ideas and encouragement as well. You are NOT alone.

The commitment we ask is for you to be available for 9 months to 1 year to walk alongside another woman in her faith.

Here’s the time break-down:

  • Attend Mandatory Mentor Training before FLOURISH kick-off Event in August
  • Meet face-to-face with your mentee (or via Zoom) once per month
  • Find a means of communication to check in weekly that works for both of you
  • Attend 2 Mentor Encouragement sessions. These are meant to foster community among mentors, providing training, support, and times of prayer through the journey.
  • Celebrate our Kick-off and Closing Celebrations with your Mentee.
  • Meet twice throughout the program with your Captain and her group of mentors she oversees for continued encouragement and accountability.

Kick-off and end of season celebration dates will be given to you in advance at the start of the FLOURISH season. All other session dates are TBD and will be communicated to you throughout the year. We highly encourage you to participate in these events so you feel connected to a larger community of Women!

Others decide to close out the chapter of mentoring encouraging their mentee to sign up to be a mentor the following year or find their next form of connection at CrossCity (i.e. joining weekly Bible Study, participating in Rooted, etc.). This is flexible and we encourage you to talk to your Captain towards the end of the program for guidance in how to best make this decision.

Each mentor in FLOURISH has a Captain who is there to support them throughout the journey. Your Captain will be at the FLOURISH events and will be hosting 2 smaller, more intimate gatherings througout the program with you and the other mentors they oversee. These gatherings are a way to connect with each other and gather new ideas from the group that can be helpful for you and their mentor/mentee journey.
