The Challenge

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left”]Pastor360 train tracks xlImagine if you (or a loved one) were in a job that ranks in the top 10% of the population in terms of educational requirements but was 325th out of 432 in terms of compensation. Further imagine that even with four years of post-graduate education you still felt unqualified or poorly prepared to perform the demands of your profession. And finally imagine that your vocation typically leads to severe stress causing anguish worry bewilderment anger depression fear and alienation. How would you feel?

You would be rather pessimistic about your chances of future success wouldn’t you? There is a very high likelihood that your Pastor may be feeling the same way (you’ll learn why later in this report) because Pastors are in a dangerous occupation and most Christians have been totally unaware of this dilemma…until now.[/text_block]

Our seminaries do a good job equipping Pastors with the ‘how-to’ of preaching-providing Pastoral care-theology and teaching the Word- but often fall a bit short in the areas of:

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left”]

  1. OutreachPastor360 Proverbs 911 Praying Hands
  2. Ministry Balance
  3. Congregational Leadership
  4. Overcoming Discouragement
  5. Personal and Professional Time Balance
  6. Stewardship Raising Funds and Funding the Mission
  7. Administration (as it relates to Staff Leadership and Management)

[/text_block]

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left”]…and so many other areas that are critical for your Pastor to be successful in leading your congregation AND living a healthy and well-balanced life! There are two sides of the Pastoral role. On the one side your Pastor needs to preach provide Pastoral care and be sound in theology and in teaching the Word. To better understand the other side of the Pastoral role (that is not generally taught) consider these questions:

  1. How does your Pastor develop relationships with many people who come from a variety ofPastor360 Bob Hiller Preachingbackgrounds and bring with them a multitude of ideas and attitudes?
  2. Where does your Pastor get the experience and wisdom so critical for properly and professionally performing the numerous responsibilities that accompany the Pastoral office?
  3. Where does your Pastor obtain the necessary training and development to grow the Kingdom while enjoying less stress and achieving more balance in his life?
  4. How does your Pastor avoid and overcome his feelings of frustration and move forward in tackling the ongoing challenges of his ministry?
  5. How does your Pastor continuously expand his leadership qualities and measure his impact in leading your staff and congregation?

Pastor360 Burnout to BalanceIf your Pastor does not master this ‘other side’ of his Pastoral role the result could be crippling to his ministry and to his family. Research shows your Pastor is facing more issues and dealing with more conflict more anger and higher expectations than ever before. In addition your Pastor may be expected to work very long hours (away from his family) for far less compensation than he deserves and little recognition for his efforts. In many cases research shows that most Pastors do not have the adequate support to meet the expectations of their parishioners.[/text_block]

Selected ‘PK’ (Preacher’s Kid) Stories

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”15″]Pastor360 Lila photoI’m Lila Larson. Dad was a United Church Minister in Canada and I saw the struggles he went through growing up as a Pastor’s daughter.

It was really in later years that we got to spend more time [with Dad] because in the summers he would take his 4-weeks of study leave and his 2-weeks of vacation and go study some more to add to his skills. Not just about the Church but adding to his skills on how to work with people and how to build systems that would work. All the things never included [at the seminary]. He paid for all of those things himself which meant that there wasn’t a lot of money to do things.

What I’m sad about is those kinds of situations still exist. Pastors are given the theological base and there is more that’s been added to their training. But they’re not given the skills in how to manage what God has prepared them to do…and the pain for the Pastor for the Pastor’s wife for the Pastor’s children is gut–wrenching because we were not supposed to show that Dad wasn’t fully equipped. Pastors need more they need more support and they need more training. They need more skills in areas other than just serving God.

Dad was a lifelong learner I know that what is being offered through Pastor360 he would embrace whole-heartedly he would be the strongest supporter and he would be the first learner. And as he prays over all of us now from being with God he is rejoicing and his great thundering laugh is celebrating that there is such a resource as Pastor360![/text_block]

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”15″]Pastor360 Ben photoI’m Pastor Ben Braun. PK’s have a good idea of what their fathers are going through in the parish but it is always a filtered view. Having been in this a year and a half I’m starting to realize just how much I was protected from in terms of Dad not bringing it home. Things like taking on other people’s anxiety. Whether you brought on the anxiety from someone going through a divorce or whether you are bringing on anxiety watching a ten year old go through cancer. If you don’t take care of it it just builds up. I saw this happen as a PK. No one likes to see his or her father broken.

Now he and I are very close because we went through that brokenness as a family. But at the same time I can’t help but wonder what could have been taken care of to help him. He does not have to go through those kinds of things alone and I think Pastor360 really offers up opportunities for that. It offers up opportunities for any age Pastor whether you are starting off or you’re in transition to your second call or whether you’ve been at this for thirty years.

It was great hearing about how this [Pastor360] was started up and how it came from someone sitting in the pew that really cares about what their Pastors go through and wanting to make sure that it is being taken care of and thought of. Whether you are an elder on the board of governance or church council you’re in a place of responsibility to care for your Pastor. You are there to encourage your Pastor and say ‘You need to grow too because you’re not going to be any good to us if you crash and burn.’[/text_block]

Trends and Protect YOUR Pastor From
Becoming the Next Statistic

Encouraging your Pastor to become part of our Pastor360 family can help accomplish this.

Pastor360: Making Life and Ministry Better

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left”]Research shows that Pastors face more issues deal with more conflict more anger and higher expectations than ever before. Not only that your Pastor may be expected to work long hours for little pay little reward and be absent from his family because of the demands of ministry. And in most cases research shows that Pastors may not be adequately trained to meet the expectations of their parishioners. In addition many Pastors have not learned to balance time and responsibilities of family and ministry or to deal adequately with the massive demands and expectations of the ‘job.’
