The Mt. Zion United Methodist Church Mentoring Ministry was given birth when the words of our Lord and Savior, "Suffer the little children come unto me", had spiritual meaning to a group of men who realized that they had to be at the hand of Jesus to receive and love our children.

The mentoring seed was sown in the year 1990 and with God's rich soil, fertilizer and sunshine warmth, it has blossomed to over 65 mentors and 110 mentees, both representing several communities and schools in the South Jersey area. Mentors work one-on-one, at the high school and elementary level, with over 30 mentees addressing educational and personal needs. At both levels our goal is, within a spiritual context; work with each student to facilitate academic and social success, to achieve graduation at each level and on to post high school education, if possible. Progress reports and report cards are distributed to mentors for mentor-mentee conferences. Tutoring is also provided. Other developmental efforts consist of workshops designed for personal growth, a dictionary program and a host of group activities.

The ministry has been blessed because here, at Mt. Zion United Methodist Church, are child loving individuals who come forth to help mold the lives of our young through mentoring.
