Pastors & Ministry Leaders
Serving as a pastor is a high calling and privilege reserved for those specially called, blessed and set apart by God to shepherd and lead His Church. That said pastors are not exempt from the hardship, pressure, discouragement, temptation and pain often associated with leading and ministering in the local church. Expectations to perform, pressure to please, crises to control, problems to solve, and unrelenting criticism can all take their toll. If left unchecked and unattended, this can leave them feeling angry, isolated, overwhelmed, weary and depressed. Burnout, addictive behavior, and disillusionment are quite often not far behind.
Like Elijah in 1 Kings 19, pastors find themselves needing a fresh outpouring and experience of God’s grace, care, and compassion in order to keep the faith and finish strong. God has brought Restoration Counseling to function as a means toward that end. Having served as a pastor myself, I know the pressures pastors face and find no greater honor then helping you find emotional health so that you can fulfill the call that God has place on your life.

Understanding the fear and anxiety involved for clergy to talk about their pain and problems, Restoration Counseling upholds the highest ethical standards of client confidentiality so as to ensure emotional safety and client anonymity. Only in situations of abuse to children, and the elderly, or in cases where there is suicidal or homicidal intent, or when legally required by the court to do so will confidentiality be broken.
