For the past forty years, Jim Stump could be found sitting in a café on the Stanford University campus chatting with some of the most talented athletes in the world, walking with them, getting to know them, sharing his life with them, and loving them. He understands that the best way to have an eternal impact on the world is to develop deep and meaningful relationships with a handful of people. When Jesus walked the earth, he focused his energies not on filling stadiums but on twelve handpicked disciples whom he mentored and equipped to carry out ministries of their own.
With engaging personal stories of the famous athletes he has mentored, along with examples from the life of Jesus, Jim Stump shows how to develop rich mentoring relationships with the people in our lives. He answers the question so many of us have"How can I help to bring my friends to faith?"by providing simple steps toward developing those relationships, living life authentically, and sharing faith with those we care about.
Pastors, youth pastors, small group leaders, and individual believers will find The Power of One-on-One inspirational, encouraging, and practical.

I am new to mentoring and Jim's guidelines, wisdom and experience are helping me to be confident in listening to and advising the young mother I meet with on a regular basis. And, Jim has amazing stories and a great sense of humor!! I just ordered an additional book to give to a friend who has been a mentor for a long time. I know she too will appreciate Jim's heart and love for his boys as well as his biblical approach to a very important call from the Lord..
