Help Meet the Needs of
Times of crisis always hit distressed neighborhoods and those on the margins the hardest, including the churches who faithfully serve those communities. These churches don't typically have the resources to survive a lengthy economic storm. Yet their work and presence are absolutely vital for a flourishing community. We need to direct critical funding to these churches to help them thrive through this storm. PastorServe is uniquely positioned through robust local networks to identify critical funding needs in these turbulent times. If you would like to partner with us to get resources to help where they are most needed, donate today and/or reach out to us at email@example.com.

Thank you to The Humanitarian Disaster Institute at Wheaton College for this practical, 28-page manual, Preparing Your Church for Coronavirus (COVID-19): A Step-by-Step, Research-Informed and Faith-Based Planning Manual.

How can we serve you?
Serving the Church is important to us because the Church is still God’s primary means for redeeming a broken, fallen world by the redemptive power of the Gospel. For us, that begins with serving pastors. Over many years, we’ve been invited to strengthen churches of all sizes, and the experience we had with Mike Bickley and his church is exactly what we strive to do.
Giving yourself away is the calling of every pastor, leader, and church.
We serve a glorious God and get to share the greatest news ever! Nothing could be more exciting…or more challenging.
Along with great opportunity comes difficulties like
- great spiritual opposition
- cultural conflict
- our own problems and baggage
...all carried into the ministry.
Building a thriving and loving team is difficult in the best of circumstances. Building a healthy and vibrant team on a large church staff is a significant challenge.
They led us on a retreat that has helped us
- grow deeper in our love for one another
- identify our baggage
- clarify our culture
and move forward with hope.
Then they followed up to help us craft a plan to address our problems, accentuate our strengths, and continue growing in grace as one team committed to one purpose and one Savior.
We are incredibly grateful for PastorServe and the expertise and help they provided.
