Help When YOU Hurt

Where does the Pastor go when he/she is hurting? Who do you talk to when the unexplainable weighs heavy on your heart?

Pastors are people too, with some of the same hurts, habits, and hangups as anyone else.

Having someone you can walk through this stuff with can make all the difference in the world. It can really help to talk with someone who understands the dynamics of Pastoral Ministry.
