The ultimate goal of a mentor should not be the replication of oneself in a person's life but rather, Christ-likeness. The Apostle Paul worded it well in 1 Corinthians 11:1 when he said "Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ."
The ultimate accountability of those being mentored is not to the mentor but to Christ, the Chief Shepherd. At no time and at no level of a mentoring relationship with Gabe does control or manipulation have a place. Gabe is a fellow servant saved by grace just as anyone he is mentoring.
$35 Consultation Fee
Clients must pay a consultation fee in order to book their initial consultation, meaning payment will automatically be applied when the appointment is booked. I require clients to pay upfront because this reduces the likelihood of clients missing their scheduled appointments.
As a courtesy, we will send an email reminder about your reserved appointment 24 hours prior to your appointment. However, if we are unable to reach you, please understand that it is your responsibility to remember your appointment dates and times to avoid late arrivals, missed appointments and the cancellation fee.
If an appointment is missed, canceled or changed with less than 24 hours notice, the client will be charged a cancellation fee of 100% of the service charge. I realize that there are can be some unexpected things that can come up in our lives. While truly sympathetic, when a client cancels without giving enough notice, they prevent another client from being seen, so in fairness to all clients, this policy is in effect regardless of the reason for the cancellation.
