In the apostle Paul's last letter, he entreated Timothy to take what he had learned and entrust it to other faithful men, who would, in turn, entrust it to others (2 Tim 2:2). This paper focuses on the pastoral imperative for mentoring leaders from biblical and historical perspectives, and then analyzes several modern approaches to mentoring future leaders through established programs found in the local church and in the academy. As a result, the paper demonstrates the importance of mentoring future leaders for local church ministry.
