Adults_Women's Mentoring Ministry.jpg

The purpose of this pairing of women together through the mentor-ship ministry at Orchard Hill Church is to cultivate friendship by meeting regularly and sharing life experiences, and to enrich each woman's journey in following Jesus as they grow together in God's Word.

A Christian mentor is a woman who has life experience in following Jesus and who voluntarily agrees to guide a mentee in her desire to find and follow Jesus Christ.
