Why should you be part of the 4word Mentor Program?

We know the 4word Mentor Program is a life-changing 10-week experience in which every professional Christian woman should take part. But don’t take our word for it! Hear from one of our mentees:

IMG_2893R-cropped“Going through the 4word Mentor Program set my life on a new journey. Everything in the program was extremely organized and well communicated. My mentor did not live in the same city as me, and it worked out very well. She is someone who is professionally and spiritually what I needed at this time in my life. 4word does an incredible job with matching mentors with mentees. Mentors are needed at every stage in life, and no one is too old or young for a mentor. I hope you will consider this program because it will be life changing.” – Meg Weinkauf, Mentee
