“fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual demands of ministry can put tremendous stress on the entire family. Pastors are not immune to discouragement and relationship challenges. Demands of shepherding a church, nurturing, and providing for his family, and maintaining healthy relationships can be daunting and overwhelming. The pastor and his family can become isolated, alone and need help from someone OUTSIDE their church fellowship or peer group.
Shepherds Help will come along side the pastor and his family to bring Hope & Help.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

2 Timothy 3:16-17
For a country founded on Judeo-Christian principals, it is a loss of spiritual influence we CANNOT afford!
