ABOUT PASTORS UNITED
Pastoring a church is not an easy assignment. Having been in ministry for more than 30 years, we are acutely aware of the joys as well as the stresses and challenges of leading a ministry. One thing that we have learned is that whether you are just beginning your pastoral assignment or you are a seasoned pastor with years of experience, you will need guidance along the way.
We are here to help. We established Pastors United to strengthen the local church and provide a spiritual covering for pastors. With over 400 members around the world and headquarters in the United States, Europe and Africa, Pastors United continues to grow and flourish, serving as a primary source of mentorship, counsel and leadership development for Pastors around the world. Through Pastors United we give impartation, provide resources and host events that will help you develop and continue a healthy, growing ministry and healthy relationships – with God, with your spouse/family and with your congregation.
Along with the blessing of a spiritual covering, Pastors United offers a safe, confidential environment to ask the tough questions that you wrestle with. From how to be your best for your family and your ministry, experiencing competitive feelings toward your spouse, personal spiritual struggles, to financial matters…connecting with the Pastors United is an opportunity for the pastor to be ministered to.
…in the multitude of counsellors there is safety. Proverbs 11:14
