The season following an Article 17 separation can be painful and lonely. And while Regional pastors and peers are often the best frontline of care and support for pastors, we suspect that sometimes it might be nicer to have a resource that is not connected to your classis or denomination. Furthermore, care for pastor’s families in these situations is something our system has long struggled to do well, but something Pastors’ Hope Network (PHN) is designed to address.
PHN is a collaborative group of businesses, organizations, and churches who walk alongside pastors and their families after separations and forced resignations. They offer help and hope through a wide array of services for the entire family including: access to Christian counselors, financial guidance through wealth advisors, help writing a resume by professional resume writers, as well as compassion and pastoral care. All of these services are supported by donors who care deeply about pastors so that PHN can offer them free of charge to you.
In an effort to increase options of care for pastors and their families following an Article 17, Pastor Church Resources (PCR) wants to make you aware of this resource, which is available to pastors in Canada and the US. It’s relatively new, but it seems promising.
