Murdock Trust ‘On Leadership’
- Investing in OthersTerry McGonigal of Whitworth University demonstrates the mentoring model of Jesus among his disciples. The impact of faithful mentoring has lasted throughout the life of the church and into today’s Christian organizations.
- Looking Under RocksAnnie Jones-Barnes of Northwest Leadership Foundation believes we must search anywhere and everywhere to discover new leaders. Traditional models of leadership development do not necessary find leaders who bring true transformation.
- Mentorship is DiscipleshipTod Bolsinger of Fuller Theological Seminary suggests that the cultural affirmation of busy-ness is an area Christians should challenge. Perhaps senior leaders in Christian organizations should be people who are never too busy to invest in the next generation of leaders and disciples.
- Over the Shoulder and Through the HeartSteve Garber of the Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation and Culture talks about the importance of mentors letting young leaders observe the mentor in action, try their hand at he work, and then make it their own.
- Ride AlongSteve Moore, Executive Director of the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, describes his experience—as a student—of accompanying a mentor throughout his day, the gift of being able to learn from the mentor, and the impact it had on their relationship.
- Sherpa Style MentoringSarah Baldwin, Vice President of Student Development at Asbury University, uses the metaphor of a Sherpa to describe how mentors come alongside interns to help them along the way. Interns must “climb the mountain” themselves, but a good mentor will serve as a guide.
