A companionship in which two or more persons intentionally come together to seek and respond to God’s activity in their lives.
When most people hear the word “mentor” they think of two people, with one taking on the role of senior advisor–helping, guiding, and teaching a younger person.

One-on-One Mentoring: a commitment to intentionally walk with another. Not as an expert or specialist, but simply as someone who loves, asks questions, listens, and prays with someone else.

—Keith R. Anderson, author of Spiritual Mentoring and A Spirituality of Listening
