Women are ministering in significant roles within the church today. A large number of churches are using women in various leadership roles and implementing mentoring programs through spiritually mature females. One of the problems facing churches today is the structuring of a strategic training program for mentors. This project will devise a strategic nine-week biblical mentoring training project for the more mature Christian women within the inner city churches of Houston, Texas and surrounding areas. The goal is to promote spiritual health and growth that will encourage positive lifestyle choices in younger females. The methodology utilized data obtained from several churches located within the inner city of Houston, Texas. These included a questionnaire to churches within the Houston, Texas and surrounding areas, surveys to graduate students from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary enrolled in the Pastoral Leadership class, face-to-face interviews with several women in leadership positions within their churches or para-churches, a conference at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, Loving Houston and implementing the seminar by the Iva Thomas Ministry, Women Mentoring to the Women.
