Integrity Mentors
About us

The Mentee Experience

We engage our mentees in monthly group Mentor Sessions to address home, school and general social challenges. Our role is to expose them to unique places, activities, and experiences to broaden their perspective and open doors for a successful future. We strive to properly equip them with the tools and resources that work to instill confidence, help build better relationships, learn to make responsible decisions, improve in school, set goals and aspirations, and put in the work to achieve them.

1. Leadership

The Leadership module equips youth with the ability to deal with difficult challenges, decisions that endanger their integrity, and obstacles that threaten their future. Some topics discussed in the sessions related to leadership include: a) Self-Esteem, b) Be a Leader, Not a Follower, c) Anger Management & Conflict Resolution, and d) Watch Your Words.

2. Life Lessons

The Life Lessons module helps youth understand how to carry themselves (their public perception), the value in taking care of their physical health, and how to make wise decisions about their future. We also focus on how to handle social interaction with others and authority figures. Some topics discussed in the sessions related to life lessons include: a) Personal Hygiene/Etiquette, b) The Law & Your Community, c) Healthy Relationships, and d) Life Beyond High School.

3. Social Responsibility

The Social Responsibility module teaches youth to feel and think compassionately about other people and to understand the importance of giving back to the community. Some topics discussed in the sessions related to social responsibility include: a) Respect for Others, b) Community Service, and c) Cultural Awareness.

Statement of faith

Marriage and Human Sexuality
Based on biblical scripture, the following is what we believe:
  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His death on the cross to provide our redemption, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father in heaven, and His promise to return to earth in power and glory.
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, was separated from God. Only through faith, trusting in Jesus Christ alone for salvation which was made possible by His death and resurrection, can that separation be reconciled.
  • We believe that for salvation of lost and sinful men (women), restoration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by who’s indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe marriage as the permanent, exclusive, comprehensive, and conjugal “one flesh” union of one man and one woman, intrinsically ordered to procreation and biological family, and in furtherance of the moral, spiritual, and public good of binding father, mother, and child.

Lawrence Marshall

founder & executive director

Lawrence Marshall was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, the only son of Lawrence and Carol Marshall. His parents divorced when he was 3 years old. After the separation, he and his family relocated from city to city before settling down in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Although growing up without a father figure his entire life, Lawrence was influenced by his mother and a mentor to stray away from the gang and drug influences in their neighborhood. He was inspired to further his education at Langston University where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Technology. Soon after graduation, he relocated to Aurora, Colorado where he accepted a job as a Design Engineer in the Telecommunications industry. His desire to get involved in the community led him to serve as a volunteer with the CABPES (Colorado Association of Black Professional Engineers and Scientists) program. There, he partnered with instructors and community leaders to help introduce urban youth to the importance of science and engineering.
During his time with CABPES, his passion to mentor youth transformed into a way of life. In his heart, the needs of urban youth were not being addressed, particularly youth being raised in single parent homes. Lawrence moved to Dallas in 2000 and became an active volunteer in various youth programs and activities in the church. Still feeling there was a gap with the mentoring programs being offered and their impact, Lawrence branched out on his own to establish a Christian non-profit mentoring program in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex that would cater to at-risk youth.
Lawrence married the woman of his dreams in September 2006. They have three children together, Kylie, Jaden and Ramon. Both Lawrence and his wife share a passion for mentoring youth and volunteering in the community.

A word from our founder

“Integrity Mentors is more than just a ‘program’. We’re a faith-based platform that holistically develops today’s youth while giving parents an outlet to become the leaders their children need.”
