We view spiritual mentoring (discipleship) as: “one person coming alongside another as a companion on the journey of faith to help them answer questions such as “Who is God?”, “Who am I in Christ?”, “To what has God called me as I live out my life?”, and “How can I grow, thrive and mature spiritually?” – Dr. Gloria Woodland (D. Min)
We want to see individuals and families flourish through a culture of spiritual mentoring.
The FEAST program is one launching point for mentorship at The Willows Church. FEAST is a year long cycle that intersperses great food and fellowship with teaching and mentorship. Over the course of the year the participants will gather for a common meal and engage in three 4-week teaching series based on Richard Foster’s classic book: “Celebration of Discipline: The path to Spiritual Growth”. New participants can join at the beginning of any FEAST cycle – Fall (October), Winter (January), and Spring (April).
Between each session we aim to connect participants with mentors who will meet with them regularly to continue the journey of personal development in Christ.
