Students need affirmation and support in order to develop in their confidence, independence, and personhood. This program offers upperclassmen the opportunity to reflect upon and make meaning of their college journey with someone they regard as a strong spiritual mentor. The role of a mentor is to help students process past experiences, understand where they are now, and plan for the future.
A mentor should be someone who can engage in complex ways of thinking and can help them navigate shifts within their own thinking. The mentoring program seeks to provide a positive support system for MVNU students in the areas of encouragement, prayer, and affirmation of their God-given talents, abilities, and call/vocation.
The Campus Ministries Mentoring program is geared for sophomores, juniors and seniors to meet with an MVNU faculty or staff member or a non-MVNU employee (via an application process and approval from the Campus Pastor).
