Helping Pastors and Churches Thrive in an Age of Decline
Samaritan offers a robust Caring for Clergy and Congregations program. We are committed to helping pastors of all denominations become healthier, better leaders of more vibrant congregations.
NEW: Congregations for Clergy
Beginning in September of 2020, Samaritan provides online worship services designed exclusively to meet the spiritual needs of pastors. Click HERE to learn more.
Coaching and Spiritual Direction
Pastors and congregations are under more pressure today than in centuries. Clergy struggle with practical aspects of leadership, such as overcoming resistance, envisioning new directions, and healing their congregation's wounds (as well as their own personal wounds). To address these and other challenges, Samaritan provides one-on-one clergy coaching, youth director coaching, and spiritual direction through an integrative approach in all of these areas.
Pastor Leadership Renewal Groups
Samaritan offers monthly small groups for pastors that focus on developing stronger leadership.
Transformational Ministry Workshops
We offer a number of workshops for clergy on how to further develop and improve their ministry skills. These workshops are rooted in research and actual experience from transforming churches, focusing on areas that seminaries and denominational groups often have not. They include:
Dealing with Personality Disorders in the Church,
Congregational Group Dynamics,
Pastoral and Congregational Discernment
Leading Churches through Transformation
Samaritan offers instructive congregational board and worship service assessments. These assessments are focused on helping pastors lead churches in the directions they envision.
