Elevation Outreach

Mentor One Child – M1 Initiative Launch

By TONIA BENDICKSON

Thank you, Elevation Church for your commitment to serve and empower children this fall.

In week three of our series “I know He is, But Who am I?” Pastor Steven Furtick announced we are committed to sending 1,000 Elevation mentors into our region’s schools in the 2012-1013 school year.

He pointed us towards this scripture about putting our faith into action:

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”  (Hebrews 11:6)

Pastor’s point was “It may be costly to do God’s will, But I am confident in his reward.”  Truly in this case, the responsibility will be the reward, as not only will we change lives through this initiative, our lives will be changed.

At every Elevation location this weekend, hundreds of you stepped up to say “Yes, I’m interested in learning more about mentoring a student.”

By Sunday evening, 1,470 people had turned in cards seeking a spot in an upcoming training session.

If you didn’t get a chance to stop by the orange tent and sign up this weekend, there’s still time.  You can sign up this coming weekend at any Elevation location, OR click the green M1 Initiative box to go to an online signup form.  If you did sign up, expect to hear back within the week about options this month for your training session.  If you’d like to get a head start on being a great mentor, take a look at this Newsweek primer by Jonathan Alter called “Mentoring Works”.
