"REVITALIZING GOD'S CHURCH ONE PASTOR AT A TIME"
80% of churches are stagnant or declining and about 80% of them are solo pastored. We believe these are often related. Churches typically grow when pastoral staff has time to connect with its members and community. We typically see this in new or large churches. Churches in the middle lead to core problems that Pastor Partner seeks to prevent; pastor burnout, discouragement, and fatigue.
What We Aim To Do
Connecting solo pastored churches with retired pastor mentors.
Why Pastor Partner
Pastor Partner connects solo pastors with retired pastors through an online compatibility matching system to help eliminate pastor fatigue. The retired pastor is there to work alongside the solo pastor and help them with whatever is needed. This retired pastor has tremendous experience and knowledge so they are able to jump right in and immediately alleviate pastor burnout and begin making a positive impact on the church.
