Only God can renew and restore tired and wounded hearts. That’s why we partner with God. Only the continued immersion of a ministry leader’s heart in the Gospel will lead to lasting ministry health.
When hope is lost, ministry dies. Cultivating new hope is best expressed when we say, “God is not done with you yet!” Our personal stories reflect the reality of this fundamental truth.
Renewal – what needs to be mended – and Restoration – what needs to be rebuilt – are at the heart of Gospel hope. We compassionately work to strengthen the soul of God’s shepherds, to see them restored when wounded or fallen and to advocate for their ministry health as well as their just and loving care.
Pain is too valuable to waste. In God’s gracious hands, it is a means to deeper growth in the life of a pastor. It brings a deeper understanding of God, His care, and His plan. It can equip the ministry leader for greater effectiveness in service to God’s people.
We are in the encouragement business. Building relationships that can encourage ministry resilience for pastors and their families is what we do. It is built from the foundation that we “live what we give”, being committed to each other’s ministry health as a team.
We are committed to creating “sacred spaces” within the relationships we build, where honest conversations can occur, trauma can be processed, and wounds can be healed. This is shaped by a posture of listening well to those we serve, and to the God who heals.
The local church is the instrument of hope in the life of a ministry leader who is journeying through difficult transition and turmoil, and it is the God-designed instrument for bringing the hope of the Gospel in Christ to the world. Healthy pastors lead healthy churches, and healthy churches are engaged in the mission of God.
It is the calling and mission of PIR Ministries to partner with God and the Church in service to pastors, ministry leaders and their families of all races, ethnicities and both genders – all created in the image of God and equal before Him.
