Pastors feel the toll of their congregations’ emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual needs. As you can imagine, it’s incredibly isolating and a heavy burden to bear, especially with the ongoing stress and uncertainty in our culture right now.
This is why the Minister’s Assistance Program (MAP), a counseling referral program for pastors and their families, exists. We are able to offer MAP at a greatly reduced rate because of the generosity and support of the Converge MidAmerica family and churches. We know that mental health is VITAL for pastors to live a healthy life and lead their ministries well.
