Should we invite church staff or pastors to be in the group or to lead the group? Or is this for lay people only?

Absolutely you can invite church staff or pastors…unless you think it will impact the transparency and vulnerability of the group. Mentoring only works when the mentees in the group are fully open with each other and willing to allow others to speak truth and give honest feedback. 

Just keep this in mind as you invite church staff or pastors. If you don’t think they will be fully transparent and vulnerable because of their positions or if you think the other mentees in the group won’t be fully open with a church staff person in the room, you may want to hold off.
