Providing hope and care

Providing hope and care to pastors, church staff and their families through Christ-centered support.

Right now it seems all of us are rolling with the changes COVID-19 and the accompanying protocols bring. What may have been needed on Monday, is often amended by Tuesday or Wednesday. Leader Care is here to help. You are not in this alone. We exist to serve those serving the body of Christ. During this time there are three ways we seek to do this. First, via this site we will seek to share useful information to assist you. Second, the Leader Care facilitator in your region. He is there to help you process your own feelings as well as offer a listening ear. Third, your Leader Care facilitator is a resource. He can offer referrals for the needs you encounter.

Those who serve God by serving His people are themselves people in relationship with Jesus. Their life issues are the same as those faced by members of the congregations they attend. They must care for their relationship with Christ, like the people they spiritually oversee.

When members struggle, they go to the pastor or his wife. To whom does the pastor and wife go? Pastors and their families need the same experience of grace, support, encouragement and accountability as those they minister among. When this is lacking, the statics are shocking:

 

1,500 pastors leave the ministry each month

50% of pastors’ marriages end in divorce

Two out of three engaged in ministry struggle with pornography

80% of seminary graduates will leave the ministry within five years of graduation

Unrealistic expectations cause tension and destabilize the pastor’s family
