and Abilities That Lead to...
Your Next Steps
I would encourage you to prayerfully consider applying for our private coaching program so you can lower the risk of becoming the next statistic. Remember, churches fail because pastors fail and in many cases…it’s not your fault alone. Pastors are often limited by financial constraints in achieving these objectives on their own.
You have a need for your pastor to have his personal affairs in order so he can provide a stronger and more effective ministry to your church and in your community.
Our desire and passion is to help your pastor gain the knowledge, skills, abilities, experience, and leadership attributes so he can continue to grow the kingdom of God through your congregation while achieving and maintaining a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual balance. Supporting and sponsoring your pastor into our program can help accomplish this.
So, I'm hopeful that you will consider these disturbing statistics, reflect upon your church's relationship with your pastor. I’m also confident that you realize that pastors are real people who are not perfect and who often need assistance to expand their knowledge, skills and abilities to better serve you and to expand the impact of your church in the Kingdom of God. To show your love and support for your pastor, have a conversation with him to discuss the program that will best suit him and your congregation.
Your contribution/financial gift may be tax-deductible because Pastor360 is a 501(c)(3) public charity that is focused on ‘Making Life and Ministry Better’ for pastors. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further assistance.
Yours in Service,

Selected ‘PK’ (Preacher’s Kid) Stories
I’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!
I’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.’
