The heart of Cultivate is to see women of NorthPointe becoming firmly rooted in Jesus and the word of God. We believe a mentoring relationship between an older and younger woman can be rich soil to Cultivate such growth. Our team will connect older women with younger women and walk along side them on a 9 month mentoring journey.
“Older women similarly are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor addicted to much wine, teaching
what is right and good, so that they may encourage the young women to tenderly love their husbands and their children,
to be sensible, pure, makers of a home (where God is honored), good-natured, being subject to their own husbands, so
that the word of God will not be dishonored.”
Titus 2:3-5 AMP

WHAT IS CULTIVATE?
Cultivate is a nine-month (January– September) mentoring journey for the women of NorthPointe Church. Cultivate will connect older women with younger women in a mentoring relationship to encourage and challenge one another in their walk with Jesus.
IS THERE AN AGE REQUIREMENT?
Cultivate is open to mentors ages 30+ and mentees out of college or 23+.
WHAT ARE THE MONTHLY AND WEEKLY REQUIREMENTS?
Mentors/mentees will decide on when and how often they will meet. We do ask that you fully commit to these meeting times. Mentees: In order for the soil for the relationship with your mentor to grow and be guided, we ask that you have devotional time in the word 5 days a week.
DO I HAVE TO BE MATURE IN MY WALK WITH CHRIST TO PARTICIPATE IN CULTIVATE?
Absolutely not! But you need to be willing to commit for nine months! That’s what Cultivate is for, to help you grow in your walk with Christ. Your mentor is going to help guide you on this journey and point you to Jesus. Will your mentor have all the answers? No, but she is going to walk with you and open scripture with you to help you gain a better understanding of who Jesus is. So, in other words, you need just the right amount of maturity to stick to your commitment and press on to see what God has in store for you without cutting this opportunity short or slacking!
DO I GET TO PICK MY MENTOR?
No, but know that we are very intentional with the matching process. We read every application with great intention and much prayer. We consider many factors to provide each mentee with the best mentor possible.
DO I NEED TO CALL NORTHPOINTE CHURCH MY HOME IN ORDER TO BE A PART OF CULTIVATE?
Yes, we believe that you should call NorthPointe Church your church home in order to be a part of Cultivate.
IS THERE A COST FOR CULTIVATE?
Formally, no. However, if the mentor/mentee decide to read a book together or go through a Bible Study book together you will be responsible for purchasing your own materials.
HOW DO I APPLY FOR CULTIVATE?
Applications will be open September 2-October 14 for Mentors. Applications will be open for Mentees September 2- November 25.
