Do whatever best fits your church culture and will best resonate with your men. We’ve provided a template that can be used as an email or formatted and sent as a personal letter. We’ve also seen great success from churches who’ve turned that template into a video invite. And in other cases, it may even be a personal invitation, especially as a secondary follow-up, that does the trick.

Ideally, the invitation to your mentees will come from whoever’s voice would carry the most weight. If you can get your Senior Pastor or Campus Pastor to send a letter or video to your potential mentees saying they and your church recognize them as potential leaders, that can be very meaningful.
