Consulting, Coaching, Mediation, and Resources
for
Christian Pastors, Their Ministry Team, and Members

We believe a direct correlation exists between our churches' well-being and the nation's soundness. We desire to serve the church by helping to equip pastors, their ministry support staff, and their members for today's challenges. A well-known quote reminds us that once equipped, we also need to understand our culture and know where and how God would have us direct our efforts:

If I profess with loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except that little point which the world and the Devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved, and to be steady on all the battlefield besides, is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point. (Martin Luther) 
 

Serving Pastors, Support Staff, and Members

 

As consultants, coaches, co­-strategists, and mediators, we serve churches by addressing a variety of challenges faced in ministry:

  • Resolving conflicts in a manner that honors and promotes the best on both sides

  • Recruitment, training, and management of volunteers and lay leaders 

  • Creating and sustaining lines of effective communication

  • Defining and maintaining professional and personal boundaries

  • Promoting the best outcomes in dealing with difficult people 

  • Finding resolution for challeging situations and obstacles encountered

  • Developing and implementing a sensible plan for personal health, fitness, and         body/brain performance

A quote from from The Duke Endowment Clergy Health Initiative (not related to Ageless IDEAS): "Studies indicate that clergy are in one of the nation’s most overworked professions. The long hours and constant stress of the job weigh on their health leaving little time for pastors to take care of themselves. Research indicates that clergy regularly overextend themselves, neglect their bodies and fail to notice physical signals of distress, and ruminate on criticism that isn’t relevant to God’s call. The challenge for the church is to reverse the trends at work in the faith community, so that clergy have the space to attend to their well-being."

     Years of formal training alone do not fully equip a person for ministry. And in a church, member expectations for a pastor/leader can be overwhelming. A pastor's comment in the Clergy Health Initiative is not far from the mark: "Count the number of the people in your church, and that is the number of expectations you face."
