how can we help?


Too many pastors/ministry leaders feel alone in their ministry journey filled with obstacles. Often schooling and training did not adequately prepare them to face such difficulties, and they wonder if they will be able to succeed.

Standing Stone Ministry was created for this very reason. We believe that every pastor and ministry leader needs a shepherd to give support and encouragement to them, which is crucial to staying healthy and strong. Healthy ministry leaders develop healthy followers of Jesus and healthy followers of Jesus can change the world.


Our Shepherds have been in your shoes. They have spent years working in ministry and know the challenges, difficulties, frustrations, and discouragement you have encountered on your ministry journey while trying to care for people in your church and community.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.” – II Corinthians 1:3-5 (NIV)

They have been trained to walk with pastors and other ministry leaders as they unpack the pressures and problems they face, without having to fear the loss of their job or reputation. They are a safe harbor, they will not judge what you share and will provide complete confidentiality. Our shepherds are passionate about serving and may just make the difference between ministry success or ministry burnout.


Our Shepherds are funded by their own ministry support teams which are also committed to helping you succeed and remain on your ministry journey. Standing Stone Shepherds willingly serve at no cost to you or your church. We need you to be healthy and feel supported by people who appreciate and value the unique calling on your life.
