Help For Fellow Ministers

Within Christian ministry, especially the office of pastor, there are challenges, disappointments, and times when you may feel alone. I know what it is like to be in those low valleys and I'm here to help you navigate the difficult times of Christian service.

 

Wouldn’t it be great to have someone who understood what you go through?

 

Well, I’ve been there and experienced the same issues. Trust me when I say I understand.

 

I understand the feeling of disappointment due to:

  • Lack of church growth

  • Lack of participation or interest

 

I know what it’s like to be hurt by:

  • People who said they had your back

  • People you have sowed time and energy

 

I understand the feeling of betrayal of:

  • Leaders who left for “greener pastures”

  • Church members who left abruptly without speaking with you

  • People who gossip behind your back but act like your best friend to your face

 

I know what it feels like to ponder thoughts of quitting the ministry

  • After a big win (Elijah Syndrome)

  • And after disappointing outcomes (rough sermon, an outreach that went south, etc.)

  • Every time you have to deal with silly stuff (non-kingdom related drama)

 

I Understand...

  • I understand what it’s like to have your family living in the proverbial fishbowl

  • I understand what it’s like to be raked over the coals in gossip circles and on social media

  • I know what it's like to be misunderstood

  • I know what it's like to be an easy target - knowing I will not retaliate in anger

  • I know all too well, the feeling of overload and the brink of burnout

 

Please know: Ministry was never meant to be done alone and there are many who care about you and your family.
