Developing the Practice of Biblical Mentoring Through Expository Preaching at Kepler Road Baptist Church (KRBC) is a project in which the presence and practice of mentoring in the Bible is studied and how applying that practice in the local church would benefit the individual participants and the church ministry. The author’s goal for this project was to teach participants about how the Bible presents mentoring and to instill in them the desire to adopt mentoring as a lifestyle. The research for this project was accomplished through accessing material from the Jerry Falwell Library Online and by visiting the library at the Reformed Theological Seminary in Oviedo, FL. In addition, some private materials were accessed, and some interviews were conducted. The material in this project will provide a template to use to initiate a similar program at another church or in a teaching environment. The benefit from this program includes stronger fellowship between church members, increased interaction, and stronger personal relationships with Jesus.
