I’ve Got Your Back

We just recently attended an awesome conference called Unleash and during the last session there was a powerful moment where we surrounded our pastor and prayed for him. The purpose of this time was to let him know that we have his back. I can tell you this is huge in a pastor’s life. In my humble opinion I feel like ministry is the toughest job on the planet. It is the one thing that you can never shut off. You think about people every minute of every day and your heart breaks over people who don’t know Jesus. It breaks for broken marriages. It hurts when its members hurt. You constantly think about how to build up people and your church. Ministry carries a weight that is indescribable.

As an executive pastor I have to tell you that I long for your support….of my pastor. I have had several people tell me since the conference that they have my back and I know that they mean it and it is appreciated but the most important thing to me and what helps me sleep at night is knowing that through hell or high water the people of Lifepoint Church support Pastor Jeff. I believe with all my heart that God appoints a leader over each church and that leader has to know that you are with them. So pray for your pastor today and next time you see him, let him know your with him.

  1. Not only do I understand the weight that a pastor bears, but I also personally have experienced the consequences that can happen when a pastor folds under such a burden. If we need further evidence of how we must need to “have the pastor’s back,” there are some statistics in this blog recent post that indicate the high priority of his continual need for our prayers and our full support:

  2. Daryl & Jeff,
    I just wanted you guys to know that from the bottom of my heart, I’ve got your back. If you ever need anything, I’m always just a phone call away, or if we are ever together somewhere & you need anything – I’m always ready to go to war with or for you guys & I mean that!!! With much Love in Christ, Milo
