Abstract
This dissertation, presented as a manual by which churches, community civic and/or fraternal organizations can begin to train African American Christian men to effectively mentor young men between the ages 18 and 24. The first segment of the project targets the mentor as he awakens from the setback of an emotional and spiritual death - hurt, shame and feelings of inadequacy - for the task. It also addresses the urgency, needs, contributions and impact of trained and dedicated mentors. The foundational method of this project is accomplished through preaching and Biblical engagement; thus, the training is bifurcated through sermons using congregational preaching formats and training using both the Socratic method of teaching and discussing that which was shared for the purpose of immediate Praxis which is to put the theory into practice. Finally, the project should demonstrate how the training relates to the geographic area of Ministry (GMA) of Colony A.M.E. Church of Glen Cove yet can be transferable nationwide.
