Strengthening pastors

Healthy churches are led by healthy leaders. Through assessment, coaching and covering, strategic planning and supportive networks, we can help you maximize your God-given potential to fulfill your mission.



Don't face your calling as a pastor alone

Leading a congregation of staff and volunteers to accomplish the eternal purposes of God is a challenging endeavor. Along with being a powerful communicator and counselor, pastors are also often expected to be experts in the fields of finance, office administration, grounds maintenance, volunteer disbursement and child care coordination. It is not a calling to be taken lightly. It is also not a calling to be faced alone.

We understand the unique needs of pastors and desires to join with them on their ministry journey. Outside support is beneficial in assuring the ongoing health of a pastor in his ministry, family life and personal walk with God. Converge pastors receive the support they need to help them fulfill their calling and make a greater Kingdom impact.

Converge pastors receive:

Pastoral Care
Pastors and churches sometimes need encouragement, a renewed perspective and counsel. Our staff is equipped to aid you and your congregation as you address challenging relational issues such as conflict, lack of authenticity, forgiveness, parenting, marriage and extending Christ-like love. Whether through large-group settings such as workshops, retreats or teaching from the pulpit, or more personal sessions though individual meetings with pastors or consulting with small groups or leadership teams, we can help your team.

Every leader is a coach and every leader needs a coach. Coaching flows from the relationships that God has established for us, and helps develop healthy rhythms in our lives and helps us succeed by providing spiritual guidance, emotional support and prayer, accountability and training and skill development. There is someone who has experience you can lean on, and likewise, someone who needs your experience to help them navigate their path.

LEAD Team 
A LEAD Team is a gathering of relationally and missionally committed leaders from a geographical region or affinity group. Teams meet together regularly to build meaningful relationships, focus on spiritual growth, and work together to see mission accomplished through multiplying (planting) new churches, and nurturing church health.

While church planting is a strong emphasis of each LEAD Team, church health is equally important. Participating pastors/leaders challenge each other, learn together, and resource one another in a caring environment to stimulate the mobilization, health, and impact of each church involved in the team.
