Studies show that 70% of pastors and pastor’s wives regularly battle stress, fear and isolation as a result of their commitment to ministry. As many as 2,000 pastors leave the ministry each month. Who holds up your weary arms when you are tired? Who comes to your side when you are drained? Who pauses to pray for you when you face ministry overload? The Waypoint Director of Leader Care provides personal care for leaders through phone calls, face-to-face meetings, and prayer.
Waypoint Church Partners offers multiple seminars each year on critical topics for church leaders. Recent presentations were The Art of the Sermon and By-laws Training. Waypoint expanded its reach by offering these seminars in both North Carolina and Virginia. Waypoint staff members also lead local and regional retreats for congregations. Vision, values, ministry planning and future direction for churches are popular topics.
One-On-One Coaching improves ministry skills, develops leadership, and strengthens the local congregation. Andy Stanley says of coaching: “No one can achieve his full potential without a coach.” Waypoint offers individual coaching to ministers across the region with a team of trained and certified peer coaches.
