PTI’s Distance Mentoring Team provides one-to-one help for pastors who are unable to attend training conferences, for whatever reason. It also assists them to understand and apply the scriptures. Distance Mentoring is also available as a follow up to those who have attended conferences. It helps them build on what they have learnt, and answer any questions that may have arisen during the conference. Our small mentoring team are usually current or retired pastors.
