    Research AbstractMy research title is 'Mimetic effect in mentoring Baptist ministers.'  The aim of the research is to explore the dynamics of mimetic effect  - the reproducing of identifiable attitudes, values and behaviour - between a mentor and their mentee.  The research approach uses a mixed-methods case study of Baptist Ministers in mentoring relationships. This is explored initially through a quantitative survey. Subsequent qualitative phases involve in-depth interviews with mentors and their mentees and also with practitioners in the field of mentoring Christian leaders to identify and understand the dynamics of mimetic effect.
