Examples of PIR's impact

I left a ministry position hurt, confused and disillusioned. I felt alone and ready to quit ministry altogether. A colleague suggested I talk with PIR Ministries. Agreeing to enter into a coaching relationship was the best, most life-giving decision I had made in a long time. I would unreservedly recommend PIR Ministries to any pastor working through an exit from ministry, or any ministry challenge.

PIR was foundational for deep healing for my wife and me. The partnership from our support team enabled us to work through hurts and begin a process of forgiveness. We also had the space we needed to hear from the Lord as He spoke through our friends and to determine a future call to ministry… the Pastor in Residence process was the discipleship we needed at the right time.

— Pastor A.M.

After being trained as a Refuge Church, I made the assumption that our church would work primarily as a place for our PIR family to heal during one of the most difficult and vulnerable times in their lives. The unexpected joy was watching how the process enabled them to experience a renewed sense of call to gospel ministry. Their God-given gifts and talents significantly contributed to the life and work of our church.
