In 2012 my 10 year plan was completely derailed as I found myself exiting a pastoral position I loved. In the wake of this painful transition I was introduced to the Pastor In Residence ministry to pastor’s and their wives. Their at risk survey would have been a huge benefit to me on the front end had I known about it.
If you or those around you are feeling that something isn’t right about your present pastoral situation, please take this free survey created through years of research by Dr. Charles A. Wickman regarding the risks pastors face.
Choose Mercy was birthed on a journey from wrath to mercy. While many in the church think wrath is the appropriate response to disagreement, we think the New Testament calls us to choose mercy (Col. 3:12) We have a passion for supporting and encouraging pastors and their wives and children. This comes from the comfort we have received in our own pastoral experiences and witnessed in the lives of pastoral colleagues. Unfortunately the pain of church conflicts, forced exits, health challenges, broken family relationships, and personal failures often leave us wondering how to move forward. Our greatest desire is for each of God’s children to know their Father’s heart for them, and for pastors to personally experience the love and grace they have preached to others for so many years. If you know of a pastor in transition that we can come alongside, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
