Sometimes guys need to be reminded that their pastor is a man just like them. An Area Director had a tremendous impact on a pastor and his leadership team…

“I expressed the need for the men to be behind the pastor and support him and his vision. One of the men said with tears in his eyes, ‘At the training when we prayed for the pastors, it struck me that I haven’t been praying for my pastor.’ Another, said, ‘I’ve prayed for a lot of people, but, Pastor, I can’t remember the last time I prayed for you. Tonight I’m going to get on my knees and pray for you.’ By the time we were finished, all three assured the pastor that they had his back. We scheduled another meeting in two weeks to begin working on the six-session follow-up plan [to implement the principles learned at training]. God is good!”
