Mentoring Mondays for Manna U and the Community

Mentoring Mondays

The classroom setting at Manna University is an invaluable tool we use to educate, equip and empower our students. However, education can happen in many different formats and ways, both inside and outside the classroom. One of the biggest areas in which we grow and learn is through life lessons. This semester we will bring in seasoned leaders from various areas to share their life experiences with you. These leaders will talk about their wins in life and the lessons they’ve learned. We hope through sharing their experiences you will receive an impartation of wisdom in your life. These sessions will be interactive, and questions are always welcomed and encouraged. A few of the topics that will be discussed are church leadership, church planting, intercultural studies, cross-cultural ministry, community chaplaincy, military chaplaincy, worship ministry, Christian counseling, and other lessons that support the greatest commandment and the great commission. In addition, many of the leaders who will be presenting are Manna U alumni or current students. Key concepts that may be discussed include recognizing that failure is not fatal, learning to juggle responsibilities well, and learning how to do all things with excellence. Join us this semester as we continue to learn and grow through our Manna University community.
