Pastoral Care

7 Ways to Support Your Pastor


I remember at 3WLN #1 I had a few conversations with others about what it looks like to support our pastors, even if we might not fully agree with them. Here is a helpful article that gives 7 practical tips for supporting our pastors on a Sunday morning. These tips can go a long way toward building a relationship that can be mutually beneficial. This is also a good article to share with your church community, as they ask how to be helpful to you.

Celebrate Good Times


Come on, it‘s really easy to get so focused on the needs of our communities and churches that we forget to celebrate the wins in our communities and churches. This article speaks to the importance of celebrating our wins and how the product of taking that time can be unity, momentum behind church leadership, and even more reasons to celebrate.

May we be people who celebrate together what God has done and is doing in our midst. 

Training New Volunteers and Keeping Connected to the Existing Ones

I’m not sure what this looks like for you, but I found it challenging to keep my volunteers all on the same page all the time.  Often times I would wonder if the system we had in place was really working at all. This article does a great job of expressing some of the difficulties involved in training and keeping ministry volunteers, while also offering some suggestions on the best practices.  

I hope it will help us keep healthy ministry teams around us, because doing it alone just isn’t a viable option long term.
