What is Standing Stone?

Standing Stone Ministries is a non-profit ministry comprised of experienced ministry leaders committed to caring for pastors and their spouses at risk of leaving the ministry prematurely. Our shepherds are comprised of both 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 those 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.

Feeling burnt out in ministry? 

Let's face it, ministry can be challenging and down right exhausting. Unfortunately, Too many of our pastors feel alone on a ministry journey full of obstacles. They realize that schooling and training did not prepare them to face such difficulties and wonder if they will be able to succeed. Our Shepherds have years of experience walking in the shoes you wear. They know the challenges, difficulties, frustrations, and discouragement you have encountered on your ministry journey while trying to care for people in your church and community.  


Some pastors see challenges and believe they are insurmountable. Our Shepherds look at them with a sense of wonder and see a great opportunity for significant success. They want to help you navigate the difficult challenges facing you. Utilizing their wisdom and experience can make the difference in your ministry success.


Our Shepherds have been trained to walk with pastors and other ministry leaders as they unpack the pressures and problems they face, without having to fear the loss of their job or reputation. They are passionate about serving pastors and may just make the difference between ministry success or ministry burnout.
