Welcome to the Entrust Mentoring Community at NOBTS. We are so glad you are interested in joining us in our mission to intertwine high-quality theological education with mentoring relationships. Below you will find more information about our program and all that we offer along with a program application.
If you are not already enrolled as a student at NOBTS, then we would love to help you get started. Please contact the Office of Admissions for more information about NOBTS or a Seminary application. Once you receive your student ID number and Seminary acceptance letter you will be able to complete the application for the Mentoring program.
The members of the Mentoring Community at NOBTS have been praying for the students who will join us and we would encourage you to take some time to read over the information from the Mentoring webpages and pray about your place in the Entrust Mentoring Community.
Students are encouraged to ask someone that they have developed an existing mentor relationship with or would like to have a mentor relationship with to be their mentor for the course that they wish to take for a semester. Mentors must be approved by our program and meet certain requirements. Please see our Become a Mentor page for more information about mentors. You will be contacted by the Mentoring Office about continuing the registration process for the upcoming semester. Please go to our How to Register page to learn how to register for our courses. You can see what courses are offered at NOBTS in the mentoring format and view sample syllabi on our Mentoring Courses page.
Below you will find documents that students must ask their mentors to complete each semester that they take a mentoring course . Students must submit a Mentor Training Verification Form and Mentor Agreement Form by email to the Mentoring Office. These forms are required for accreditation and students can not pass a mentoring course if they fail to submit these documents . Students are asked to give the Mentor Training Verification Form and Mentor Agreement Form to their mentor, preferably at their first mentoring meeting, the first week of class. If students are taking more than one mentoring class, the student only has to submit one set of documents, if the student is using the same mentor for each of his or her mentoring classes. If a student is using different mentors for more than one mentoring class, each mentor needs to fill out mentoring documents for the student that is being mentored. The first day of class at the beginning of each semester, the Mentoring Office will send an email to all students with the mentoring documents attached and instructions and a deadline for submission. Students are responsible for submitting these documents as a PDF through email to the Mentoring Office at the beginning of each semester. Please contact the Mentoring Office as NOBTS if you have any questions.
