Gordon MacDonald says;
  • There are five kinds of people;
  • 1. Mentors, often older and wiser and willing to build their experience into our lives.
  • 2. VIP’s. Very important people who share our passion. They love us enough to ask us tough questions and keep us honest as they work with us in our common vision.
  • 3. VTP’s. Very trainable people who have caught our passion and into whose lives we have been called to make an investment.
  • 4. VNP’s. Very nice people who enjoy our passion but do not contribute to it.
  • 5. VDP’s. Very draining people who sap our passion.
as mentors we need to discern
The two groups that will multiply what we invest in them!

1. VIP’s Very important people who share our vision

2. VTP’s Very trainable people who have caught our vision and are willing to be trained.

The two groups that will divert us from the vision God has given us;

1. VNP’s Very nice people who like our vision but do not contribute to it.

2. VDP’s Very draining people who will divert us from our God given vision.

As Mentors we need to discern;
