The heart of FLOURISH is to see the women of Passion City Church & The GROVE be firmly rooted in Jesus and the living Word of God. We believe a mentoring relationship between an older and younger woman can be rich soil for such growth. FLOURISH will connect older women with younger women in a curriculum based mentoring relationship to encourage and challenge one another in their walk with Jesus.
FLOURISH is a one-year commitment (January – December) of monthly one-on-one and group connections for the women of Passion City Church. Applications are currently closed for the 2017 Season. Check back with us again in October 2017 for more information about FLOURISH 2018.
FLOUIRSH is a one-year (January– December) mentoring journey for the women of Passion City Church. FLOURISH will connect older women with younger women in a curriculum-based mentoring relationship to encourage and challenge one another in their walk with Jesus.
FLOURISH is open to mentors ages 35+ and mentees out of college or 23+.
Meetings will happen monthly, alternating between “one-on-one” meetings between mentor/mentee, and full group meetings with your mentor and fellow mentees. Mentees: In order for the soil for the relationship with your mentor to grow and be guided, we ask that you have devotional time in the word 5 days a week, which includes also connecting with your mentor via email at the end of each week.
FLOURISH will provide its own curriculum. Occasionally, you will also be asked to read books during the year in order to better understand the scriptures and topics we are discussing on this journey.
Absolutely not! But you need to be willing to commit for one year! That’s what FLOURISH is for, to help you grow in your walk with Christ. Your mentor is going to help guide you on this journey and point you to Jesus. Will your mentor have all the answers? No, but she is going to walk with you and open scripture with you to help you gain a better understanding of who Jesus is. So, in other words, you need just the right amount of maturity to stick to your commitment and press on to see what God has in store for you without cutting this opportunity short or slacking!
No, but know that we are very intentional with the matching process. We read every application with great intention and much prayer. We consider many factors to provide each mentee with the best mentor possible. As much as possible we will also try to find a mentor in your area of town.
Most likely one only, but it depends on the capacity and choice of your mentor. We have had groups from 2 – 6 mentees. But remember: the focus of FLOURISH is on the mentor/mentee relationship. While we want to maximize the capacity of our mentors, FLOURISH is not a small group program.
You are not required, but we highly encourage you to make attending The GROVE a priority. We believe it’s important to be a part of what Jesus is doing through The GROVE and our House.
Yes, we believe that you should call Passion City Church your church home in order to be a part of FLOURISH, which is one of the “rooms” in our House.
Our curriculum is written in-House. It is a curriculum that is fully based on scripture. We do not have a book or a devotional, but we focus on diving into the word of God.
Yes, we ask both mentors and mentees to contribute with a donation of $50 for the year to help with program expenses.
Yes! We are actually thrilled that you want to do FLOURISH again! If you are in Year 1 we encourage you to deepen your walk by moving to Year 2. Year 2 will be simpler, but deeper and a bit less structured than Year 1. We hope you will join us again! If you have completed both Year 1 and Year 2 we encourage you to pray about stepping into becoming a mentor.
We can’t promise that, but we promise to assign you the greatest mentor we can! You will be able to indicate your desire to maintain the same mentor at the application, but again, there is no guarantee.
Applications are currently closed for the 2017 Season of FLOURISH. Check back with us again in October 2017 for more information about FLOURISH 2018.
