Ways to Get Involved
With your financial contributions, and our care and counseling programs, we can give pastoral families the vitality and resilience they need to remain healthy and effective for a lifetime of ministry! Together, we can truly turn back the tidal wave of pastoral families leaving the ministry and affect the growth of churches in a positive, definitive way by supporting pastoral families. Thank you for investing in God’s Kingdom by providing care for pastors!SUPPORT PASTORAL CARE
Pastors give support, and they need support too! So we created a program called The Pastor’s Ally to give them the system of support they need to fulfill their role in God’s Church. However, many pastors are serving in small congregations or shepherding bi-vocationally, and they cannot afford a program of care to help them stay the course of ministry. This is where you come in! You can be an Ally by sponsoring a pastor and provide the support they need. Together, we can uphold God’s leaders, ignite healthy church growth and change the world!SPONSOR A PASTORS' ALLY
The unsettling reality of hundreds of pastoral families walking away or being forced out of ministry every month has led us to form a group of allies dedicated to supporting the cause of caring for pastors. As a part of Gideon’s Army, you provide the ongoing platform of support needed to ensure that pastors and their families will remain healthy and effective for a lifetime of ministry. Support pastoral families, strengthen The Church, and see the world won to Christ!
We believe that pastors and their families deserve the best care for a lifetime of ministry, and our Added Giving Opportunities provide a wonderful avenue to make this possible. Through our Added Giving Opportunities program, whenever you use any of our affiliate services, a portion of your purchase/subscription will go back to support this ministry. The best part is that there is no extra cost to you and no ongoing commitment necessary.
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, there 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!TELL ME MORE!
So much of the work God accomplishes through nonprofits rests on the involvement and participation of volunteers!
People who give of their time and of their abilities to meet the needs of others are truly a Godsend! Nonprofit organizations regularly depend on volunteers to complete meaningful tasks and achieve important goals without the cost of hiring employees every day. The selfless acts of generosity and thousands of hours every year our volunteers give enable us to serve far more pastoral families than we possibly could on our own. We are so grateful for our volunteers and the significant contributions they make providing care for pastors through this organization!
You can be an Ally to pastors by volunteering. Let us know your desire to participate and we will gladly orchestrate your involvement!I'M INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING!
