"They sent Barnabas ("son of
encouragement")...he was glad and encouraged
them all to

in the highest regard
because of their work." 1 Thes. 5:12-13

helping the church in the vital ministry of encouragement
. We all
need encouragement. Numerous studies show that pastors (clergy,
priests, ministers, etc.) are especially susceptible to

ministry of encouragement. I'm convinced that an effective
ministry of encouraging pastors will have the effect of creating
healing communities that will be effective in authentic Kingdom
sincere prayer is that this
site will be a creative resource and a catalyst for the "building up" of
Church Pastors. Your ability to give or
withhold encouragement is very powerful, creating ripples that effect many
"Confident in your
obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I ask. And
one thing more; prepare a guest room for me, because I hope to be restored to
you in answer to your prayers." - Philemon
Stay tuned as this site continues to
develop. Consider giving some input on the "
