The MN River Valley Mentoring program was honored to be asked by WELS Special Ministries to help create and produce a mentor training program. The link above will take you to a recorded training seminar conducted by two of our mentors. It’s a free, self-paced course that includes videos of each segment of training and downloadable workbooks. Although it is geared towards mentoring a returning citizen, it’s applicable in many forms of mentoring – many of which are touched on throughout the course.
The MN River Valley Mentoring program consists of WELS members and share the mission of proclaiming the gospel.
Although we are not a part of WELS Prison Ministries, our mission and resources overlap in many ways. We have a a strong, mutual working relationship aimed at providing relief and guidance to returning citizens recently released from prison or jail.

“Freedom for the Captives seeks to empower the Christian community to respond with excellence to the sin of child abuse.”
“Equipping people and churches to provide an authentic, safe and caring recovery ministry for people suffering from addictions, hurts and shame.”
“We advance the gospel by partnering with local churches and their communities to discover and overcome their greatest obstacles together.”
A number of our mentors are also involved with Men of Truth – another New Ulm-based organization. “Men of Truth aims for those lofty goals as we gather Christian men together around God’s Word, to consider the blessings, challenges and opportunities in their lives and to empower and equip them to carry out their God given mission in their homes, churches, and communities.”
