Introduction
RCCGNA has defined a vision that is both historic as it is futuristic. This vision will harness the unique passion of young adults to impact on the future. The vision is historic because it did not begin with us. We are modeling the covenant relationship between God and the founding fathers of the mission. For this covenant relationship to be sustained, we are committed to this mentoring process as a futuristic endeavor. It has immediate deliverables: what is being done today with immense passion and energy by our young adults and it has future options; what will happen in the future as we do well what we have started today. RCCGNA has faith in the future. We are friends of science and confident partners of proactive social change paradigms. We believe that when all is said and done, the values that we espouse will be relevant to the future of the church. Our Mentoring process is to have our young adults prepared and ready to be there when duty calls. The importance and urgent need for mentoring program can never be over emphasized. The future of the church and the nations will be doomed if our young adults are not well groomed and prepared for the challenges ahead.

Some of the objectives of this initiative are as stated here:
⦁ Design a multimodal (leadership on many layers of human engagement) and multifunctional platform to reach the young adults for a purposeful future that will affect multiple generations
⦁ Seek ways and means to de-ploy skills and release leadership gifts among young adults ages 16 years to 31 years plus
⦁ Have the young adults prepared and ready to be there when duty calls (take over when current leaders are no more)
⦁ Have an “IN-REACH” and “OUTREACH” components to grow young adults into strong, faithful, accountable, effective, and highly fruitful leaders
⦁ The In-reach Component focuses on empowerment of young adults to be all that God has called them to be
⦁ The Outreach component focuses on young adults strategically finding ways and means to serve their community as mentors of values which we have espoused
⦁ Provide mentees ⦁ access to experienced mentors who can contribute to their spiritual, professional and personal development

Through the above objectives, Mentor Right! Intends to deliver the followings to the young adults in our churches and the community at large:
⦁ Platform for mentees to realize their potential by enabling personal, professional and spiritual relationships with mentors, who act as role models and provide guidance
⦁ Model for development of faith in the Lord, ensure a deeper walk with God, access business contacts, industry information, and gain valuable insights from experienced and successful leaders in Faith and Society
⦁ A total adult with the fear of God and secured future

⦁ The mentee gains insight as he or she asks or answers questions
⦁ Facilitate an environment where challenging and incisive questions are welcomed. **These questions come from both mentees and mentors
⦁ Assist mentees in setting clear goals and growth objectives
⦁ Encourage mentees to take the lead in defining in which direction he or she wants to grow
⦁ Learning circle around three life segments- a learning circle that is entrenched in learning contract stating personal goals that are  located around the listed below:
⦁ Life skill / academics development
⦁ Character and spiritual development
⦁ Ministry/Family life skill development (adulthood development)
