In less formal settings Paraclete associates mentor, disciple and coach missionaries and kingdom workers, like this man who wrote:
It is so helpful for me to discuss things with you and evaluate the different areas of my work. It helps me to see my vision and goals much clearer, to be bold and confident and to listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit. Thank you so much for giving me so much of your time and helping me to build up my spiritual life and my leadership ability.
Paraclete associates are all experienced servants who are in a place to share what they have learned. Associate Stuart Rowell has sponsored 18 Eastern European students to study in the UK. He writes, “as I watch some of these people serve now in their own countries, having been equipped in the UK, I am humbled to know that I have been used as a catalyst in their spiritual development. One of my favorite verses at present is Act 13:36 that reminds me that all any of us are doing is serving God’s eternal purposes in our own generation, and then we are going to pass out of service. Perhaps that more than ever spurs me on to serve beyond normal retirement age in coming alongside to mentor, coach and see beyond the immediate with many of the younger men and women.”
