Why do Chinese church leaders so desperately need mentoring? An average Chinese church leader suffers from:

Not having a loving “father” in his earthly life;
Not having a godly “shepherd” in his spiritual life;
Not having a skillful “coach” in his ministry life;
Not having an intimate “friend” in his social life, and
Not having a committed “companion” in his suffering life.
Mentoring can effectively fill these five major voids in the lives of today’s Chinese church leaders.
