The Full Story
Too many pastors, especially of small, underfunded churches need A Break, or need a listening presence to help them find A Way through current ministry context. Maybe there are difficulties, maybe there are not, but we all, even pastors, need a pastor; a totally safe place to express, vent, and escape from the demands of the calling.
To provide pulpit supply/church fill in for up to a month while the pastor takes a break.
To provide an experienced, safe, listening presence for pastors and spouses; especially in contexts where there are few other options for that.
To provide a continuing prayer contact for personal support of pastors.
To help with educational/formation classes to relieve scheduling pressure.
