Partners in Leadership

 

RESOURCE PAGE

 Welcome to the MDPC Partners in Leadership Resource Page! We are excited about your interest in a potential mentoring partnership. Mentoring makes all the difference in the world—whether it’s professionally, personally or spiritually.

Partners in Leadership pairings create mutual models of healthy adult roles and relationships. These are exciting adventures. Because of different circumstances and personalities, every partnership pairing will have its own unique thumbprint. Nevertheless, we believe that each relationship will have tremendous potential to strengthen the Body of Christ…as well as help unify purpose at MDPC.

If you are considering being part of this ministry, please download the brief Overview document and Best Practices document at the links below. After praying for guidance from the Holy Spirit, contact Brett Hurst at 713-490-0930 or and indicate your interest in moving forward.
