Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of writing Catalyzing Soul Care Mentoring Among Young Leaders in France was to examine the effects of a soul care mentoring initiative on young adult French leaders to produce increased willingness to mentor others in soul care principles. The author recruited twenty-five participants. He used the Willingness to Mentor Measure (for quantitative data) and compared pre- and postintervention results in order to measure changes in willingness. In order to obtain qualitative data, he gave the participants a set of open-ended questions at the end of the intervention. He then searched their answers for indicators of God-confidence; self-confidence; a positive mentoring experience; a magnanimous vision; prioritization; enthusiasm; and, soul health. The author discovered all participants experienced a degree of increase in willingness to mentor others in soul care. Fourteen of the participants experienced a high level of increase. The researcher offered ministry recommendations.
