Is Having A Spiritual Mentor That's Not Your Pastor Ok?

Dear Pastor,

I trust that I find you well. 

First, I would like to thank you for taking time to help us with our questions during our christian walk.

My question: Is it ok to get a spiritual mentor who is not your Pastor? Do I need to ask permission from my Pastor? Secondly, could it be true that everyone has a church were they belong? Why I am asking is because we have recently relocated and have been attending a new church for the past two years. I really feel that the glory has left my spiritual life  and has taken a strong turn for the worse. I once  was a prayer warrior and now I cant even feel the spirit no matter how much I try.

Please help before I make wrong decisions.




Dear Faith,


Yes, it is perfectly fine for you to have a spiritual mentor that is not your pastor. Just make sure that your mentor is a mature, Bible believing Christian. Be sure to read the Bible everyday.

Have you prayed about your question of changing churches? Do so and God will lead you where He wants you to be.
