WHEN THE BATTLE SEEMS LOST, GOD RAISES UP AN ARMY!
A long time ago, in a land far away, God raised up a leader for a cause. This leader’s name was Gideon. He was called to lead an army to take ground from the enemy and further the advancement of God’s people; this was their mission.
In Judges 7:1-25, the Bible records this amazing story, revealing how the mission was accomplished through a small, God-selected, faith-filled group of warriors. These warriors became known as Gideon’s Army. (Please, read this amazing story, you will indeed be moved!)
GOD IS AGAIN RAISING UP AN ARMY OF ALLIES!
Ten years ago, in the land we now inhabit, God raised up a leader for a cause. This leader’s name is Ron Cook. He was called to take ground from the enemy and further the advancement of God’s people (The Church) through the strategic work of caring for pastors. Ron, with his wife Rodetta, willingly submitted to this call; however they would not accomplish this task alone.
A God-selected army was raised up. A group of Christian warriors great in faith, distinct in their walk with God, and committed in their stewardship to supporting the cause came under their leadership to establish the ministry of Care for Pastors.
THERE IS A MISSION; A CAUSE WORTH FIGHTING FOR!
Hundreds of pastors and their families are walking away or being forced out of ministry every month. With this tidal wave of loss, it’s no wonder The Church is struggling to maintain growth and is losing it’s influence and impact on the culture. Without healthy, well-supported pastoral leadership, The Church in America will continue it’s slide into irrelevance and ineffectiveness.
WE ARE GATHERING ALLIES TO CARE FOR PASTORS!
As God selected a group of warriors to accomplish the mission under Gideon’s leadership, so today God is selecting a group of committed warriors to accomplish His mission through the strategic work of caring for pastors. The Holy Spirit continues to draw out from among the ranks a faith-filled number of Christians who desire to see:
- The Church made strong and effective
- The world won to faith in Jesus Christ
- And communities transformed by the gospel
