A growing number of studies point to the importance of establishing mentoring programs for young people, but few are well grounded in the biblical material. In part one this article explores three stories of mentoring practice from the Old Testament. Each involves a young person who grows up apart from their parents. Part two draws together the lessons from the biblical data and leads to part three where they are applied to youth (and children’s) ministry in contemporary contexts.
