Pastor Supported

Pastor Supported, Pastor Supporting

I prepared the following comments to assist men’s ministry leaders as they work with their pastor in establishing or moving their men’s ministry forward. They are based on my observations while serving on a district office staff. I believe the comments will be helpful in framing your interaction with your pastor:
Prayer Champion. Every Men's Ministry Leadership Team - no matter what the size, needs a man who is a prayer leader. He not only is an intercessor but is able to pull together a few other men to pray. Priority one for this man is to encourage your men to pray with and for your pastor.
Men, how do you show your appreciation to your pastor? It is important to take time to honor and say thanks to this special man. After all, he has one of the toughest jobs in the world.
Most pastors want to have an effective men’s ministry. He may have even beaten his head against that wall for years trying to get men more involved.
One of the factors for a succedssful ministry to men is the support of the pastor. In turn, and effective ministry to men supports the pastor through prayer, encouragement, and stepping up to support his leadership.
