Pastors are the spiritual leaders of the local church. Every church needs a Pastor who is healthy spiritually, emotionally and physically. We are here to encourage Pastors so that God’s work continues.
Hebrews 13:17 “Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.”
The local church is still God’s plan to share the Good News of salvation in Jesus Christ. God has called each church to reach their world in a specific way. We exist to equip the local church to accomplish God’s mission to their world.
