GMG {Mentor} Leaders Training Program…Starting SOON!

GMG Mentor Leaders

Our summer session is drawing to a close! God has been challenging me and changing me this summer through the studies and groups I’ve been leading. Turning areas of my life over to His control is sometimes scary… but so exciting and worthwhile!

I’ve received emails from a few women who have felt God’s prompting to start leading a GMG group, and also corresponded with some current leaders who want to be more effective. It’s one of those ‘scary steps.’ Being a leader is intimidating – just the awareness that others are looking to you to be an example is daunting! While it may not require public speaking, leadership does require you to be public about your very private beliefs and thoughts.

How about you? Is this something that God has been speaking to you about? Could this be your ‘Anything?’

If it is, we’d like to help!

Good Morning Girls has some amazing resources for leaders.

  • A Leader’s Guide with many practical helps.
  • A GMG Leaders facebook support group.
  • Registered GMG Leaders also have access to a Leaders Only section of the website, where all the materials are located that you need to successfully lead a study.

But more than that – we offer mentoring!
The mentoring sessions are small GMG groups led by experienced GMG Leaders. The two week study, called ‘Women of Influence,’ takes you on a path studying influential women in the Bible – and how you can learn from them and follow their example in your own leadership. At the same time, the Mentor Leaders share helpful articles that talk about things like setting up a group and finding members, dealing with conflict and difficult situations, facing discouragement, and more!

GMG Mentoring Testimonies

Bobbie participated in one of the mentoring groups, and this is what she had to say.

“This is an awesome program that Good Morning Girls provides! I not only felt my own confidence building to lead a group on my own, but also felt my relationship with Christ deepen to another level! I would recommend participating to anyone who is interested in leading/mentoring or even if just contemplating the idea. The scripture/subject material is relevant to not only leading a study, but being a “leader” in Christ in everyday life.”

The Mentor Leaders are a wonderful team of experienced GMG Leaders. Between them they have led more than 70 sessions! These ladies have a heart for God and a heart for serving others. I am incredibly honored to work with them! Our mentors for this session are Ann, Ellen, Heather, Jessica M, Jessica R, Julie, Kesha, Mandy, Martha, Shaun, Sherry, and Veronica.

The Mentor Leaders are there to show you, by example, how to lead a group. They will answer any questions you have, as well – so ask away! These women are maybe the most valuable resource we can offer you.

The upcoming Mentoring Session will start on Monday, August 5th and run until Friday, August 16th. Just like a regular GMG study, daily participation is a must. The Mentor Groups are a little more intensive than a typical GMG study, so please, seriously consider your involvement before applying. There are a limited number of spots available.

To apply to participate in a mentoring group with a Mentor Leader, please fill out this form.

Applications will close on Sunday, July 28th.

Sincerely,

Amanda Buhler- GMG Mentor Leaders, Director

  1. I have thought about this. I wanted to participate in some studies first. I am in my 3rd one now what you ladies. I am going to make a decision tonight. :)

  2. I am excited to dive in again. This past study was the only one ive missed in a really long time and missed it. I was sick so couldn’t join….but it has been on my heart ever since. I was excited to see this, this morning!!! I’m really looking forward to the next one.
    Blessings,
    Adrienne

  3. Thank you for the opportunity! I have been so blessed by participating in GMG studies. I am prayerfully considering this leader training with mentors, and I have one question. Approximately how much time will it take to do the work each day to come prepared to contribute? Looking forward to your response. In His Grace and Peace…

    • Hi Lisa! The Women of Influence Mentoring Study will take approximately half an hour of time each day to participate, more or less. The more time you invest, the more you’ll get out of it! As a leader, however, expect about an hour of time for each day – maybe more, depending on your group and your personal study.

    Once a form is filled out expressing interest, when will a response be sent of how to proceed?

  5. Kate Wilson says:

    I’m glad I participated in the last mentoring session! I want to encourage other leaders or leaders-to-be to take part. It was great to have other leaders to bounce ideas off of and to read their input. Thanks for doing this, all you GMG ladies!

  6. Lindsey Allen says:

    Is this study just for leaders of a GMG bible study? Or is it open to all leaders? I will be starting to lead a bible study at my church in the fall and would be interested in learning more about leadership.

    • It’s tailored directly to GMG leaders, Lindsey, but the principles could be applied to other forms of leadership.

    Hi,
    I know cut-off date was yesterday, but I honestly just saw this post :( I started the Anything study two weeks late, so I try to focus only on that weeks posts… I just happened to see this as I was scrolling down today to find Week 7 postings. Is there any way I could be included in the Mentors Program? Leadership is an area I need to grow in… but, if it’s a no, then would you please consider recommending some resources similar to what you’re using in this program?

  8. Hi there I am so thrilled I found your blog, I really found
    you by mistake, while I was browsing on Askjeeve for something else, Nonetheless I am here now and would just like
    to say cheers for a incredible post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design),
    I don’t have time to read it all at the moment but I have book-marked it and also included your
    RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep
    up the fantastic work.

  9. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied
    on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you
    could be giving us something informative to read?
