THE MINISTER'S FRIEND
WHAT IS THE MINISTER'S FRIEND?
We believe every ministry & non-profit leader, as well as their spouse, needs someone in their corner! The MInister's Friend is a ministry designed to come alongside the local lead pastor, staff pastor, missionary, non-profit leader, and spouse to provide them with support & resources to reach their full potential & fulfill their calling.
HOW CAN THE MINISTER'S FRIEND HELP ME?
Regular online training events & resources
Personal life coaching, ministry coaching, & crisis intervention
Access to resources (administrative, equipment, connections, etc.) for your ministry or non-profit
Weekend service & event support by way of providing guest speakers, worship teams, & equipment
WHO WILL COACH ME?
Your first point of contact will be with James Seiler. James has been pastoring in California for over 25 years. He & his wife, Chris, served as youth & college pastors, & he sat on the Youth Advisory Board for the Northern California/Nevada District. He & Chris have also been senior leaders of two church plants in Northern California. James assumed the role of Church Plant Director for Northern California/Nevada, & assisted in the launch of over 15 church plants. James & Chris understand the heaviness and loneliness that minister's experience. Their hearts are to be friends to leaders who feel they have nobody else with whom to share their struggles. They also possess a wealth of knowledge and ideas for pastors who are just getting started or need fresh vision. They are well connected with leaders and resources around the country, and can help point you in whatever direction is right for you!
WHAT IS THE FORMAT FOR RECEIVING SUPPORT?
We will begin by connecting weekly, every other week, or monthly, depending on your needs. We can connect on the phone, video chat, email, or in-person. You may choose to receive support as an individual or a couple. We are located in the Knoxville, TN area.
WHAT DOES THE MINISTER'S FRIEND COST?
Because we long for every minister and/or their spouse to get the help they need, The Minister's Friend is donation-based. We suggest a minimum donation of $20/month to support the ministry & help us reach those that need help. For a weekend service or event support, we suggest taking an offering during the gatherings, plus coverage of travel expenses.
