“God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before we know it, He brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us.”

Ministry, like every other occupation, has its ups and downs...
its discouragements and excitements. But being a pastor is unique. As a minister, your heart, soul, mind, and body are given over to caring for others. You get intimately involved in the lives of those you serve. And it's that involvement which can cause both blessing and fatigue.
This level of involvement opens pastors to profound experiences of joy and deep satisfaction. But it also makes shepherds vulnerable to deep disappointment and pain. Human nature, being what it is, does not always cooperate with our expectations.
We knew that ministry would be difficult. But we also assumed that people in the congregation would set aside differences, work together in spiritual unity, and put the needs of those around them above their own.
We knew we weren't perfect – that we'd inevitably make mistakes. But we assumed that people would overlook or be eager to forgive. Yet, sometimes, it can begin to seem that every slight misstep is examined and magnified to the point where it gets completely distorted.
Now that you're on the scene, perhaps things don't look anything like you had expected it to be, and maybe you’re not sure where to go from here. Disappointed and disheartened, you may find yourself becoming more disillusioned and cynical: “What went wrong?” “How did we end up here?” “Am I even making a difference?”
But in your heart, at least somewhere deep within, there is still a spark, a desire, and (shall we dare say) even a bit of passion for your initial call. At PastorCare, we want to help fan that tiny spark back into full flame. We want to assist God’s ministering servants like you. We are ready to talk with you and walk with you through your ministry journey.
The bottom line, as Paul points out in Scripture, is to not lose heart. PastorCare wants to help.

Want to be a Part of the Solution?
Under the Lordship of Jesus, Pastors and Ministers are of fundamental importance to the church. Without leadership, fewer people will come to know Jesus Christ and the Good News of the Kingdom of God. As shepherds, Pastors are called to sacrificially provide for their flocks. But who is there to care for them when they are in need? Too often, no one.
YOU can be a part of the solution and help PastorCare provide resources to meet the spiritual, physical, emotional, and relational needs of ministers and their families.
