When were you called to serve?
On a warm August day, on the corner of Chicago and Rush, is where Jimmy Dodd was called to begin his journey of building what is now PastorServe.
Strengthening the Church
by Serving Pastors
Feeling stuck? Overwhelmed?
Want to make progress on your leadership challenges?
Strengthening your church, for us, begins by serving you, the pastor.
How can we serve you?
Serving the Church is important to us because the Church is still God’s primary means for redeeming a broken, fallen world by the redemptive power of the Gospel. For us, that begins with serving pastors. Over many years, we’ve been invited to strengthen churches of all sizes, and the experience we had with Mike Bickley and his church is exactly what we strive to do.
Giving yourself away is the calling of every pastor, leader, and church.
We serve a glorious God and get to share the greatest news ever! Nothing could be more exciting…or more challenging.
Along with great opportunity comes difficulties like
- great spiritual opposition
- cultural conflict
- our own problems and baggage
...all carried into the ministry.
Building a thriving and loving team is difficult in the best of circumstances. Building a healthy and vibrant team on a large church staff is a significant challenge.
They led us on a retreat that has helped us
- grow deeper in our love for one another
- identify our baggage
- clarify our culture
and move forward with hope.
Then they followed up to help us craft a plan to address our problems, accentuate our strengths, and continue growing in grace as one team committed to one purpose and one Savior.
We are incredibly grateful for PastorServe and the expertise and help they provided.
