Healthy Pastors

Pastoral health includes a variety of aspects of life: spiritual, relational, vocational, physical, and mental well-being.

The sacred calling of being a pastor can be a fulfilling and rewarding vocational path. At the same time the pastoral calling can and will, at times, bring a heavy burden—loneliness, isolation, spiritual warfare—as well as the many risks and cautions that come with leadership.

What does a “healthy pastor” look like? They serve and lead with confidence, knowing that their board and congregation support the work they’re doing. They have a thriving relationship with God, their family, and their church community. They are spiritually accountable to and for people in their life and throughout their journey. Our goal is that all of our pastors are being served and cared for by their boards, and congregations, and intentionally resourced by the Grace Gospel Fellowship.
