Standing Stone shepherds are men and women who have been involved in pastoral ministry for years. They are a diverse group of individuals who have a desire to care for the men and women who have dedicated their lives in service to churches, ministry organizations, and missionary work in our country and around the world.
Each of our shepherds have gathered a team of people to partner with them in this critical ministry. These partners make up a Standing Stone shepherd’s financial ministry support team. This allows each shepherd to devote their time to caring for pastors and ministry leaders without needing to charge a fee. Asking nothing from those they serve allows our shepherds to build caring and trusted relationships with pastors and other ministry leaders, keeping them healthy and strong.

Wisdom and Experience
To successfully negotiate the often difficult terrain of pastoral ministry, wisdom and experience are invaluable tools for dealing with the challenges facing church leadership today. Standing Stone Ministry has raised up a team of Shepherds who know the challenges, difficulties, frustrations, and discouragement pastors and other ministry leaders often encounter as they care for the people in their churches and communities.
Standing Stone is looking for retired/semi-retired/ bi-vocational pastors who have a heart to come alongside pastors and other ministry leaders feeling isolated, discouraged, and exhausted. These pastoral leaders need safe people in their lives, people who have traversed similar terrain and who have the wisdom and experience to help them avoid dangerous situations and decisions.
ADVENTUROUS – COURAGEOUS – PASSIONATE
If you are looking to significantly impact the health of the Church today, there may be no greater way to do it than making sure our pastoral leaders are cared for and healthy. Don’t let today’s ministry leaders walk this difficult path alone. With the love and care they provide to pastors and other ministry leaders, our Shepherds are making the difference between ministry success or ministry failure for many church leaders. Partner with us as we help them receive the support they so desperately need!
