Cruise Terminal #1 (Royal Caribbean)

Every army needs time to come together at rallying points. We are excited to invite you on our Gideon’s Army Cruise, hosted by Care for Pastors founders Ron & Rodetta Cook. The will be our first time coming together in the unique setting on the luxury mega ship, the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas.

This will be an amazing time of fellowship, praise and worship, prayer, thanksgiving, strategizing and daily devotions with Ron & Rodetta. We will have break out sessions including:

  • Strategizing on how to be an effective advocate with Care for Pastors
  • How you can potentially leave a legacy
  • Updates and stories of how your generosity sustains and empowers hundreds of pastoral families to continue in the work of ministry

Care for Pastors has hundreds of members in Gideon’s Army (those who regularly support the ministry). This will be the first time in the history of this ministry that this great army will have the opportunity to come together in such a way.

Join us and Gideon’s Army for this unforgettable week on this floating resort. This cruise is available to family and friends of Gideon’s Army who may have an interest in the ministry you support and love!

Care for Pastors Sunday CfP_Sunday16_eventpg

It is a forgone conclusion that pastors are to provide care for the people in their church. Clergy members all across the globe guard, feed, nurture and lead their congregants to develop spiritually healthy lives that positively affect their communities for Christ. This is their God-given responsibility (Hebrews 13), and most of them take the spiritual well-being of the flock they tend very seriously. Ministers invest mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

What is often overlooked, is that for the relationship between a pastor and his/her congregation to be healthy, their must exist a balance of giving and receiving from each to the other. The tendency of many churchgoers is only to receive, which creates an unhealthy drain on the pastor. Care for Pastors Sunday provides a wonderful platform for churchgoers to give back to their pastors!
