Your team will consist of a Kairos-appointed faculty mentor as well as a personal mentor and a vocational mentor who are carefully selected by you.
Your team will help you uncover the educational moments that are already happening within your vocational and/or ministry context every day. In addition to providing support, encouragement, and evaluation, they will guide you through your program and help you adapt your coursework in a contextually-relevant way.
Mentors commit themselves to the student’s full educational process. Beyond evaluators and supporters, mentors are co-learners with students. Such effort takes a considerable investment of time and energy. Mentors make this commitment in order to steward your journey of discipleship and help you flourish in your vocation.

Faculty mentors are approved members of the Kairos faculty. Obviously, all faculty mentors are acquainted with academic standards and scholarly research. More importantly, they are skilled integrationists who have a desire to help students deepen their faith and flourish in their chosen vocations.
Vocational mentors are intimately engaged in the student’s current context and/or role. In most cases, this means that vocational mentors are supervisors, leaders, experienced colleagues, or others familiar with or connected to the context and its requirements.
Personal mentors are confidants or individuals from whom students wish to learn. They must have, or be willing to develop, a close relationship with the student. The personal mentor is able to provide spiritual companionship because he or she is rooted in faith and understands the Christian life.
We are happy to walk alongside you as you discern whether or not God is inviting you to being a journey of theological education. If you would like more information, please feel free to ask.
