PastorCare is an ever expanding network of individuals who share a common heart for helping hurting pastors and their families. Our desire is to serve as a support network for hurting pastors, providing practical assistance and ongoing support.


We would welcome the opportunity to serve you. We are as close as your telephone or computer. As needed, we would be willing to sit down with you and your spouse, hear your story and share our lives.

WELCOME

 

Long sandy inviting beaches, golf courses, coastal plains, and beautiful vista mountains reach across the Carolinas and South Altlantic Region, beaconing those who will to come and enjoy. Whether it is the sun and fun of the coast or the scenic beauty of the mountains, the area draws people to come.

 

People live here in the midst of this sun and scenic beauty, seeking to manage whatever life throws at them. Among them are God’s faithful ministering servants who face their own set of challenging issues which drastically affect their lives and ministries. Many find their way, but some have no place to turn to seek help. Maybe a phone call to gain perspective or to know that they are not alone will help. Maybe to find hope after being asked to leave a ministry they have poured their lives into will help. Maybe to find a place to get help when all hope seems lost will help.

ABOUT US

 

Our Regional and Executive Director, Dr. Allen Tyndall writes:

 

Almost every day I hear people in ministry dealing with personal issues which I have experienced, walked through, and gained God’s wisdom. Many of these issues were/are gut-wrenching, faith-challenging, and grief-strickening. The way I trusted God in these issues impacted my ministry and strengthened my faith.

 

I seek to come alongside of fellow persons in ministry to assist them to become stronger in their faith and productive in their ministries.

 

I was called early in my life to ministry at the age of 17, yet I did not respond to this call until my late 30s. Because I wasn’t sure I could pastor a church when I graduated from Elon College, I started teaching school, and began a career in education. During that period of 17 years in public education as teacher, principal, and associate in the Virginia Department of Education, and assistant superintendent, I also earned a MEd degree from UNCG (University of North Carolina at Greensboro).

 

It was then that God called again, so I enrolled in Lancaster Seminary where I received an MDiv degree. After being ordained I pastored churches in SE Ohio and in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia before settling in Kannapolis, NC, where I pastored two churches and now call home. Along the way I earned a DMin degree from Southwest Bible College and Seminary.

 

Recently I completed 16 months of service as interim pastor for St. Luke’s Reformed Church near Granite Quarry, NC. In the recent past I have been a teacher, coach, and principal at First Assembly Christian School in Concord, NC. My wife, Doris, and I have also served as the prayer ministries coordinators at JAARS (the support organization for Wycliffe Bible Translators) in Waxhaw, NC.  

 

In addition to my ministry at PastorCare, I serve the Lord as President of New Gate Ministries, Inc., mentor pastors on a regular basis, and am actively involved in prayer ministry. I take seriously John Wesley’s words, “God will do nothing on earth except in answer to believing prayer.”

 

My wife and I have 4 grown children and 10 grandchildren. We have been married for over 51 years.

I will tell you that your emails brought tears to my eyes!!!!  I read them aloud to my husband and we were both in agreement that your proclamation was SO prophetic!!!!!! We know that we need to be in our region!!! We are truly seeking the Lord, and listening for His voice. Thank you a million times for your prayers and your encouragement!!!

Thanks again for taking the time and trouble to meet me in Charlotte. You were the voice of the Lord's reason in responding to my plea. A sense of peace is now around me as I work, not alone, but with a growing sense of His Holy Presence around me.

– Piedmont NC Pastor

 

 

Thanks so much! I am finding a better ability to cope this week than before, thanks to your prayers and kind words of counsel.

Thank you Brother Allen for your ministry to wounded Believers. You are being used by God to touch the hurting. I read your prayer every day. Thank you! Just wanted to let you know that I am starting the Dmin in Pastoral Counseling (for Wounded Pastors) this month. Also God has been opening several new doors of ministry for us. The Seminary that I teach at wants to double my classes in the Fall and the Church that I have my counseling office at is talking about opening an associate position for me. Please lift us up. Is there anything that Cheryl and I can pray for you?

God is giving us many significant opportunities to serve hurting pastors. One pastor realized that because of the negative experiences he was receiving from some members of his congregation he was not ministering God’s grace to his people. He is now trusting God more to help him speak Grace to his people rather than discouragement.

– Piedmont NC Pastor

 

 

Another pastor is struggling with his call to be stay on as an associate pastor. He believes he needs to start a new church and minister to people in the marketplace somehow. He is now seeking the Lord more earnestly regarding what he is to do. As hurting pastors come to us seek God to give us wisdom, boldness and resources to share with them in their need.
