Story by Heidi Shoemaker
In his book Mentoring by Design, Edward Marton, Ohio Conference Youth
Ministries director, poses
the question, “How could a congregation release and empower young people for ministry and disciples for service?” A young adult himself, Marton’s book looks at the model of mentoring from personal, biblical and Seventh-day Adventist histor- ical perspectives. His passion for mentoring is clear, and the
book explores the foundation of these models, adapted and applied within the Ohio Conference by Marton, both as a senior pastor and youth director.
